QuestionWhat is the best way to make an Android app (for a beginner programmer)? Pin

I have been researching this for a week and would like some more advice from someone who has experience.

My requirements are:
1. Easy to learn
2. Easy to debug
3. Free tutorials (and plenty to choose from)
4. Free implementation. (no paid services)

My app is going to teach language, and have some simple quizzes with pictures and mp3 sounds.

Because the quizzes will need to shuffle words around, a table- style database would suit best.
This means SQLite or MySQL database rather than JSON.

From what I can tell, probably the best language to communicate with SQL type databases is SQL.

Although it's not the easiest language to learn, there are plenty of free tutorials I can find.

Another alternative that looks attractive is web2py, because it seems geared to suit my project, and might be faster, however, it's less widely used and less teaching material is available, so I might get stuck.

Kotlin looks like a wonderful language to learn, but there are very few free tutorials.

Java seems unintuitive to me and I would prefer to avoid it.
I know that Java is the official language for Android, but from what I can tell, it’s not the easiest to learn for beginners or the most suitable for database heavy apps.
I won’t be needing to access any of the Android phone features, like camera/GPS etc.
I have tried to grasp Java already and found it very difficult.
I am hoping that there are alternatives to learning Java.

Could you please recommend:
1. Which language to learn,
2. What code editor is suitable for beginner (especially debugging),
3. What database GUI would be easy to use for this kind of project.
4. Any other software that would help.

Any advice would be appreciated.
