If you really want to master android programing, then you should get atleast xml and java concepts clear.
then sky is the limit.

Well, beginning development on Android platform is relatively easy. You will have to download the Android development kit ) Download link: https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html. There's plenty of documentation available on their developer pages so you should be at ease with it pretty quickly.

Note that at the launch of Android, only Java was supported as the language required for Android app development. However, the language support has improved with the version of Android.

The Android NDK aka Native Development Kit allows you to deploy your stuff on Android OS with C and C++ languages.

Google's recently began supporting dynamic scripting languages too. For that, Google has launched SL4A (Scripting Language For Android) :https://code.google.com/p/android-scripting/ , and according to official documentation, Python, Perl, JRuby, Lua, BeanShell, JavaScript, Tcl, and shell are supported at the moment. The suppor to more languages will follow soon.

You might even be interested in knowing about the Google Simple Android Programming Language : https://code.google.com/p/simple/ which makes development a cakewalk and is recommended if you are a beginner in programming (and on Android).

If I'm not mistaken, even SCALA is supported on the SDK; but maybe we'd wait to hear from the experts who've already been actively developing on the Android Platform.

Rupam Das has been developing amazing things on Windows platform, but I'm sure he can tell you the right way to begin developing apps for any platform.

I prefer a Chinese food in Chinese hotel So if it is Android, it must be java. Though you can also code in C# for Android and HTML5+ Javascript option is also available.
