@phant0m Should this sentence really be '"He like bananas." is now magically a valid sentence, but "He LIKES bananas." is not.'

I agree. I should make it clearer. The syntax is deceptive and leads people to believe the language is a lot like Java.

Programming languages are more discrete but they still have a grammar that must be followed. Spoken languages have a grammar and syntax too but we have fuzzy resolution of that grammar so we are more forgiving than a compiler. Still, the explanation might hold for children. You have to remind them that a computer is dumb and that you have to 'speak' to it correctly or it won't understand.
