1.Work with the tutorial of a random interpreted language, python for example. You only need the basics, so only do python for one or two days.
2.Create an easy program on your own, for example a stopwatch, virtual dice or a picture/porn downloader.
3.Do a bash tutorial. Knowing bash is not necessary but certainly very very handy.
4.Make a bash script, a file renamer or insult generator for example.
5.Do the same with C.
6.Translate one of you previous scripts into a C file.
7.Now that you learned a bit about languages you are able to choose which language you like and want to use, more important you are able to follow a whole tutorial without getting frustratet.
NOW you can start learning by reading a full guide of the language of you choice.
I recomment using Lua. The learning book is VERY good (Programming in Lua by Roberto Ierusalimschy) and for game making there is Löve.
