I think you should try coding in C.  It's used everywhere for
everything.  It's faster than about any other language.
Most other languages are written in C.  C is highly marketable.

But best of all...

You'll learn to *really* appreciate other languages like Python,
Java, ...

If you really want to get a feel for a language, read a fairly large
program that somebody else has written in that language, (not
just little snippets).
