Can you program in any other language besides Objective-C on iOS?

Sorry for the newbie question, but I was just wondering if it is possible to program in C++ or some language other than Objective-C on iOS devices?

If so, what tools could I use? Visual Studio?

Thanks!! :)

No you can't.You need Apple development tools running on Mac OS platform with Apple hardware. There been some attempts for porting to other platforms but not really successful.
