Assembly language is always a great base for learning the inner workings of a system. I would strongly suggest you learn the assembly language for your micro controller before you start developing any embedded system.

C is definitely the way to go once you have the basis down. The reason why C is preferred over C++ in embedded programming is that it has less hardware requirements to run; when dealing a limited amount of memory, or working with a slower processor, building classes and using an object oriented approach is quite impractical.
