With a good book (sorry, I don't have any to recommend, especially for non-French languages), C is great for imperative programming, and doesn't distort the mind from the get go with object-oriented programming, which should be introduced only later, IMO, when one's comfortable with imperative programming, or functional programming, as mentioned by bb010g. I started with C, long before university taught me any form of programming.

Go has a large popularity head start on the two others thanks to its portability, Swift isn't really portable yet (it expanded beyond the Apple ecosystem, which is a minority on both desktop and mobile platforms, only pretty recently), and Rust is far less popular than the two others but has safety features that the others don't have.
