I'm not saying that any thing of any quality can be created [which is debatable], nor trying to say there is Any excuse for the dis-organization that comes with the GOTO command. But if you got someone that doesn't know what a variable is, is just learning what Print can do. I think its a great learning tool, and can be alot of fun.
Hold on.....my brain is smoking again......

I learned to program in C++ at my college. I had no previous real programming experience (except for Basic...not QBasic, but the original Basic 1.0) and I haven't had any problems understanding objects, methods, pointers, recursion, templates, etc.
I LOVE to learn new things. My college does the same thing, they teach you how to program, not how to program in a certain language.
Nick's also right in saying that by learning the nuts and bolts of the system, you can write a more effective program.
My professor now does that, he digs down to the basics. Until now, even though I knew I could program and was a good programmer (I've won several collegiate programming competitions in the Southeast US), I didn't have the understanding I do now.
And that, IMHO, is what I think sseperates a good programmer from a great programmer....their depth of understanding.

Anyway, Pascal is nice enough (although a bit querky), and when you have to use Visual Basic after it, the language is a god-send. For actually doing things however, C is more elegant (at least in my skewed opinion)
