Yes, learning a specific language is useless if you have no real idea or need. However, learning the structure and pseudocode will help you since most languages all follow the same basic principles (only the syntax vary from language to language). Not everyone will be able to grasp this easily and that's why a good programmer is very rare.

I'm graduated as a Programmer/Analyst myself so I know what it take to learn the basics. I learned Cobol, C/C++, VB and Assembler at college but learned JavaScript all by myself when coding for a script (very easy to pick since JS is similar to VB). Right now, I started looking at VB.net code and picking things up with the different syntax and functions.
