I remember that kind of BASIC (Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code, if I recall correctly).
Mostly I'm grateful that I was introduced to both assembly and Basic within a couple of weeks of each other -- I very quickly understood why the largest line number was 32767, for example. (Unless it was 65535, but I don't think so....) I don't remember using lots of "go to"s. I remember that being discouraged even then. But, hey, this was in the 1980s.

The other advantage of starting back then was that I could follow the concepts, if not every detail, from transistor to gate to register to processor to assembly to compiler. Much harder to follow the details of what's going on in today's processors. And I'm grateful I rarely care -- modern compilers are wonderful tools. I haven't dug into the generated assembly code in a long time.
