Which host offers the most interpreters?

Is there a reliable, not-too-expensive hosting company out there that lets you post server scripts in most open-source languages?

This is for personal use. I know PHP and I'm learning Python. Eventually, I want to learn Java and one of the popular functional languages. And maybe some C++.
I know I could just download the various interpreters and compilers and play around locally, but it's so much more fun writing web apps for public consumption.
Currently, I'm with Dreamhost, and they let me code in PHP and Python. Is there another host out there with more options?
I know I could get my own dedicated server or use Amazon's cloud service, but those would be expensive solutions -- wouldn't they? If that's the only way to go, help me find the most reasonable option. I'm talking personal website stuff here. I currently pay $30 a month to Dreamhost. I'd pay a bit more than that if necessary, but I'd rather not pay hundreds a month.
