Look at local job postings to see what languages are desired locally. The popularity of languages can be very local -- some years back the city I live in had a lot of listings for SQL Server, but none for Oracle
Which is basic nonsense. If you understand SQL, then the difference between TSQL and PL/SQL is neglectable for normal tasks.

There are many positions for VB -- it's in the top 20 in most lists -- but they are mostly legacy positions, supporting ancient code. I recently retired an application originally written in VS97/C++ (v5?), and it was a relief!
Did nothing with the language recently. Just a bloody fine example of what is asked in the real world, vs the nonsense that Python and Java are somehow "popular". There's no jobs there, simple as that. You might as well learn COBOL.
