A "good programmer" should be able to pick up any language in no time. There are many different languages in use today.

You should pick one language, learn it inside out, and that'll set you up pretty well. If you learn C++, you'll pick up C easily (NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!!1! - DO NOT LEARN C BEFORE C++), and you'll also be able to have a stab at C# and Java.

Visual Basic (and .Net) are very different, but again you should be able to pick these up if you just follow through the code, it'll fall into place.

The older languages like BASIC, PASCAL, FORTRAN, COBOL etc. all follow the same principles, they're just more dated now.

And then there's the other scripting languages like PHP, ASP, HTML, Javascript etc. - HTML is the only one that doesn't follow the main principles, but it's so easy anyway, you'll pick it up even without programming experience.

There are several key programming principles which feature in all languages (variables, loops, if statements etc), just each language deals with each differently, and has a different syntax. If you can nail these, you're sorted.

Good luck.

coldburn8 is absolutely correct. Different languages are made for different purposes. Some solve certian problems more easily than others. Its best to know many languages and choose one for the specific problem you are trying to solve.

Its a general misconception that languages do not work together. They can and will. Its not uncommon to use multiple languages to code for different parts of the same program.
