C++ is a programming language. It's a superset of C, one of the older and more reliable programming language, meaning that it basically extends its functionality. It's absolutely possibility to learn programming for free. You don't need Visual Studio to learn C, or C++, just a compiler, which basically takes your programming code, and turns it into an executable piece of machine code. There are many tutorials on the internet for this kind of thing, just use Google.
I wouldn't start with a heavyweight language like C or C++, because they rely on in depth understanding of operating systems, like memory management for example.
Try using Python or Ruby. These two languages are very simple to learn and intuitive, and there's tons of documentation for the two languages floating about. They're both free to download and use.
