I personally think that it does not matter that much which to learn first.
I only know C++, and when I write I probably end up mixing some C into my code without knowing it I have gotten some pointers about that earlier

1) Read the book Accelerated C++ http://www.acceleratedcpp.com/
2) Memorize the basic syntax
3) Learn how to structure code so well that you can write huge applicables with little effort - this will take a long time. After reinforcing concepts and applying them you will be a professional C++ coder instead of a hack. (no degree required... their overrated)

||Degrees are the fastest and easiest way to tell a prospective employer, "I know what I'm doing." It is possible to get by without one, but there's nothing wrong with having one. And in the current job availability crisis (in the US), degrees are not "overrated" - you need one to get a decent job.|

Read Thinking in C++ vol 1 and vol 2 then Introduction to Algorithms
The C++ book, you can get for free here.
You may have to buy Intro to Algorithms (google free tech books). The book should come cheap on amazon.com
For those who don't like to read.
There is an open course on Computer Science I (lectures filmed). It is an excellent resource to start picking up on programming, since it provides countless of assignments. To get into other courses (CS I-III, Operating System, Algorithms, Data Structures, and Machine Organization
