Default Where to get started?

Where should I get started in this strange world of programming?
What should I do?
What should I learn first?

python is a good first step. It is used in many advanced programs, that are made in C, and such. It is also the networking backbone for many programs.

I'm new and I'm learning C, but I also have a private teacher.

If you'd like a place to look at some tutorials and figure out what language you'd want to start with, try out http://www.thefreecountry.com . They've got a lot of different languages, compilers, tutorials, articles, links and other goodies for programmers and web design.
