Speaking as a university lecturer who teaches LC to graphic design
students from time to time, I can absolutely attest to the benefits of
the 'English-like' qualities of xTalk. They get it, they can work things
out, they can use it to create *their own* basic tools and toys, and
this after just one afternoon.
It's imperfect... but hell, even *English* could be described as being
just English-*like* if you want to go down that debating rabbit hole!
The point is it's *so* much easier than traditional languages for people
to grok. That's one of LC's USPs.
Senior Lecturer, LCC (University of the Arts London)
