I've been using Vbscript for a few years now. I'm no pro but I'll get there. I want to learn ASP.Net. I've used C#.net and built a couple of websites but I've heard VB is closer to Vbscript. Would that be true or does it matter?
VB.Net is a little easier to read for someone from a VBScript background, but when coming from Classic ASP to .Net you will find that the biggest hurdles are learning OOP, and the .Net framework itself.
I can switch fairly well between C# and VB, depending on the project at hand, there isn't really a big difference between the two.
But, you will find many more coding examples and many more employment opportunities for C#.
Even though I liked vb more, the number of C# samples and examples out in the wild out number VB version by a great number. I made the decision to go with C# myself, so far it has worked out for the best for me.
One of the reasons I would suggest doing code in vb is when you have to deal with com objects, vb just much easier coding the interactions then c#. But I do this normally this only for a shim dll to be used in a larger C# application.
