Although I use Free Pascal/Lazarus a lot (because we have a lot of existing 
pascal code) I think C++ and some GUI framework like QT might be a better 
option. C/C++ is the number one used programming language. C/C++ code is much 
more portable to other systems. There are more compilers. QT has a very nice 
IDE (QT Creator) and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Nobody is using 
Pascal these days. So why learn it? 

Learn Object Pascal early instead of C/C++ because it is simpler and better 
designed. It therefore allows the students to focus on the content of what they 
are building and not the extraneous details/dangers of the language. This is 
why Pascal was the standard language for advanced placement courses for several 
decades before the academic establishment gave in to market forces.
