Village Genius will become famous soon enough

The point is that the language teaches those concepts while not having a hard syntax. At the university I go to I am helping adults with programming because c was too hard of a starter. For instance:

C
Code:
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf("Hello World");
return 0;
}
VB
Code:
Imports System
Public Module modmain
   Sub Main()
     Console.WriteLine ("Hello World using Visual Basic!")
   End Sub
End Module
Bolded code is auto generated.

While the hello world example isn't the best comparison, VB is tons easier in almost every way. It seems far more suitable for a beginner.
