You don't need to know any any programming languages to use Kali Linux , But knowing Bash/shell , Python , Pearl , Ruby , C , C++ Php and Java would help you . And be pro in Maths and Coding .

for ethical hacking, you don;t need to be a programmer, you need to know how networks work the different types of networks, the equipment used in networking, the internet, how different ports operate, and finally the network security. A programming language may be the least of all help in being an ethical hacker

I Must say that you're wrong guys , Kali is not for beginners , you're introducing a GNU/Linux distribution here that is used professionally for penetration testing , now then the user is already confused with bash and terminal and cmd itself , what about jumping from window or mac to linux ??? what about those installation processes that formats the hard drive in just a click! you must know what are you looking for here if you want to be an ethical hacker I recommend taking courses like lpic in order to achieve somewhere , but if you just want to try something new and have fun and expand your knowledge circle DO NOT INSTALL KALI LINUX I mean it , because it's not something user friendly instead you can install simple penetration apps and scripts for your running operating system , install python and try out some checks to see where's the security hole in your site , there are free services that do such thing already as for Linux , if you're interested in this topic and think that it's a better OS (which it is obviously) try reading some articles and understand what is open source and free software is here's a link for migration : https://www.linux.com/learn/Windows-linux-migration-Guide

Un general you don't need to know an specific language, you must know how the Hosting servers work, the open ports in PC's. I recommend you to use the windows CMD and Linux bash to get info about webpages etc. I recommend you to use the OS Kali Linux, I use it, it's really cool and has lots of hacking tools.

hacking itself doesn't require programming knowledge you can run a terminal and start using apps to target a device and use a payload script to exploit it , but I must say you need to cover basics of it , like what's a host , what's a server what's an ip or what is an exploit but for those who want to do some evil shit with the knowledge of programming , Python is the best tool good luck y'all
