Both the programming languages you have mentionned need compilers. These are programs which translate what you write into something the computer can work with. Have you thought where you are going to get your compiler from? Have you got one already? There are free compilers which you can download from the web, but they are only for personal use. You are not allowed to distribute or sell any of the programs you write with them.

There are plenty of tutorials on programming on the internet.

Personally I came to the basics of programming from learning Javascript( don't confuse this with Java programming). It allows you to start programming through writing web pages which interact with the user. It is handy to have a basic knowledge of web-page construction using HTML first, though.

If you were going to learn to program Java, this is quite a good language because of it's cross-platform compatibility.
