He's a child who has a fascination for computer languages, and wants to learn more about them generally with a view to doing a project on some aspect of them: e.g. their history, what they're capable of doing, who uses them, what different types of languages there are, how they work - you name it, he's interested in it. We want to point him at some informative websites and/or publications to help him get started.
