Have you ever heard of Command Prompt bro?..
Why on earth would you want to write software for an operating system that has been obsolete for over 10 years?

There is a world of difference between Windows NT's command processor and MS-DOS. Are you trying to write an NT batch file?

It is very forgiving
You do not need to compile it
You already have everything you need to play with it (a browser and a text editor).
There is a tremendous amount of resources and tutorials for free on the internet
You get instant gratification
You get familiar with concepts that carry over to more advanced languages
It contains a ton of great stuff and is very easy to set up and slowly learn everything that is there.
HTML5 Canvas is a great place to start. I have published many canvas tutorials alone and with other developers and they are very popular.
And the extra bonus is that you'll be learning current technologies that will help you as your skills grow to maybe do this stuff for a living one day
Maybe you have other reasons for using DOS but if you are looking to learn about programming and web and mobile apps then this would be a great start.

First language that I started learning and am still learning is java. To me it's quite easy to understand. There are a lot of great videos out there for java beginners. I'm assuming you still go to school right? If so does your school offer any type of programming class such as mine?
