Customer Question

As someone who did some programming years ago at university, what would be the best languages to pick up now to get back into it, hopefully leading to work ?
I have some experience of Java, and Visual Basic, even Cobol.
I've heard Python is a good language, also Javascript appeals as i've always have an interest in web programming/design.
Also what are the best video game languages ?
