Looking at Lingo

Does the thought of learning a computer language like Lingo fill you with trepidation? Before you panic, think about this: Imagine having to learn a new language before going on your vacation or business trip—but the language has a total vocabulary of only a couple of hundred words and no tenses, no conjugations, none of the other elements you should have remembered from sixth grade but have somehow forgotten. And best of all, there are no i before e rules that work only about half of the time, no irregular verbs, no past participles or future subjunctives. Just learn those couple hundred words—as many at a time as you wish, and in no particular order—and a new country (if not a new world) will open up to you.

When put that way, it's not so much of a sweat, is it?
