Personally, I use them both just to keep my programming skills sharp in both languages.
Some benefits of C# include:
It uses a C-style syntax, which means that learning additional programming languages such as Java,

language gives you an advantage when getting started.
It is a “.NET advantage of
Language”, meaning that you can take all the benefits of the .NET Framework
Class Library, the .NET Runtime, etc.
of those benefits we’ll discuss them
above, but there are throughout this series
of video lessons.
There are plenty of community resources on the World Wide Web for C#. There are also many books on C# topics, and many developers who you can find who know it if you have questions. In fact, many of the better books are written originally in C#, and at a later point are translated into Visual Basic.NET.
Lots of opportunities for C# programmers as businesses

programmers are “jumping ship” to learn language because of the benefits listed above.
The downside to C# is:
It is NOT a very English-like programming language – this is why so many people start with Visual Basic instead of C or C++ or Java. The C style syntax is not as easy as the BASIC syntax (IMHO) to learn for someone who has never used a programming language before.
If you are committed to learning a a good place to start. In my considering whether to start with
programming language, C# is personal opinion, if you are Visual Basic or C#, C# is the
better language. have to support
The main reason I say this is because it doesn’t “legacy” code, meaning that the C# language is
of the older features of the language due to the programmers who did not want to re-write large
