Learn C and Python.

They work well together... you can write Python modules in C (using
Cython or CTypes), and the most popular implementation is written in C

Alternatively learn C++ and Python.

You can can generate C++ from Python using ShedSkin
(http://shed-skin.blogspot.com.au/), and you can write extension to
Python in C++ (http://docs.python.org/extending/extending.html#writing-extensions-in-c).
