Have you ever looked at source code and wondered how anyone could interpret something that seems so cryptic? Once you learn the basics of programming languages, you'll discover that they're a lot like human language. While programming languages are designed specifically for listing out instructions for a computer, they still use grammar, vocabulary, and punctuation. In this course, your instructor will show you how to identify those language elements in sample code. Specifically, you'll learn the rules of language, or grammar, the different types of words that are used, or vocabulary, and how to make sense of all the symbols, or punctuation. Being familiar with these elements will help you learn your first computer language.
