What scripting language to learn next after shell

Hello everyone

I have been learning shell scripting this year and i feel i need to learn another scripting language in the new year. I was just wondering what language i can learn next to prepare for Life in Linux and System administration. Some of the possible options could be Python, Perl and many others.

Linux experts can offer some advice.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

There are a lot of languages to learn after Shell Scripting such as, Python, Perl, Ruby and so on…
