Why Learn Pascal?
We thought long and hard about this question. Pascal is a basic and easy to learn language. Using it teaches you important programming principles which can be applied to most other programming languages. It will also teach you skills to think through ta sks and also other skills which can be applied to many areas, including some outside computing, such as task management etc. But the most important reason to learn pascal is because it's fun and interesting. (We hope)
What would I use Pascal for?
You would use Pascal for the same things you would use any programming language. This is things such as: making games or the like, making databases, or performing repetitive calculations.
