I learned programming in QBasic, I think it’s a great way to learn programming concepts, as there’s so much less hassle involved in doing stuff. The grammar rules are flexible and simple, it tends to be non-case sensitive, and it’s just so much less intimidating.
Once you are able to program, and whatever people say, not everyone can, it’s a different way of thinking, it’s quite easy to learn any kind of language. But take for example hello world in 3 languages, BASIC (generic), C, and Java:

BASIC

[code:1:0a59bcc4b0]
print "Hello World"
[/code:1:0a59bcc4b0]

C

[code:1:0a59bcc4b0]
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf("Hello World");
return 0;
}
[/code:1:0a59bcc4b0]

and Java

[code:1:0a59bcc4b0]
public class HelloWorld
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.out.println("Hello World");
}
}
[/code:1:0a59bcc4b0]

you can’t tell me Java or C is easier to learn. oth look quite intimidating, like the include in C, the whole dot notation in Java, and the curly brackets. I remember looking at C/C++ years back and deciding it just looked too damn hard. Yet I was able to teach myself QBasic with just the help files and no internet, so I don’t know what the problem with Basic is, if anything, it’d be one of the best languages to start with
