Basic I would imagine would have been everybody's first programming language, it was certainly mine and not through and school either. I was in my late thirties when the TRS80 then the Comodore64 were released.

I was hooked on computers after those two and moved rapidly to business software on my new IBM. Does anybody remember writing in Clipper and compiling it to an executable? Then using dBIII+ database files to store the data. Times have changed!!!

I personally this programmers should be exposed at as many languages as possible, for appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of them all.
