How Many Programming Languages Should You Learn?

There’s a question that has come up time and time again in my career:  How many programming languages should you learn?

Here’s an interesting perspective from YouTuber ForrestKnight

Well if you’re starting out… one. But which programming language is heavily dependent upon your goal. Or throw your goal out the window and just learn C, because… well I tell you in this video.
I do encourage everyone to eventually lean multiple programming languages, but only after you gain a solid understanding of your first. Do NOT jump around from language to language just learning the basics of each.
