for externals you should of course use the language that you are most 
fluent in.

Pd is written in C, so C is the most natural choice from Pd's pov, but 
probably not yours.

you can write externals in a wide number of other languages as well 
(including (but not limited to) Pd (which is even more natural than C), 
C++, python, lua, java, haskell and HQ9+)

if you want to write C++ externals, you might want to use flext (which 
offers a nice framework and an awkward build-environment :-))
