    get good in at least one scripting language. I like PHP.

    MySQL is a definite...

    And CSS should be obvious...

    PHP is a derivative of C++ and Perl.

    I'd suggest getting into Ruby on Rails or Python. They seems to be close cousins.

    Definitely. But also learn CSS perhaps while, or before you learn those if you want to do web development.

    get good at php knowing a heap of languages is good but knowing a select few really well is much more useful.

    Being decent in a lot of languages won't beat being an expert in one.

    I'm pretty proficient with English. I'd suggest Spanish with the way our country is looking in terms of acceptance to that culture (assuming you are in the US).
