When you're learning a new programming language, one of the trickiest parts is getting used to the rules for how to write different kinds of instructions to the computer. When you're first starting out, it's easy to forget when to include parentheses, or to mix up the order in which you need to include certain values. But as you practice, you'll start to get the hang of it.
I remember when I was a kid, learning programming for the first time, and I was worried about learning the "best" programming language. I like the fact Nick suggests that you're likely to learn other programming languages and points out the similarities.
