Post Regular RobotC vs Natural Language for the class?
I've been working my way through the class materials. When I hit the Palm Island challenge, the directions for the challenge said to use the Natural Language platform. It's pretty easy to follow and I don't mind learning both.

But we had been only using the regular RobotC up until this point. So I just wanted to be sure I was supposed to the the Natural Language version for my Palm Island challenge submissions. Or does it matter?

Doesn't matter. You can use whichever you feel more comfortable with.

The tutorials in Palm Island are geared toward very new programmers, so they use Natural Language. If you're comfortable with full ROBOTC, feel free to use it!

Ok. Thanks! I'll use RobotC for the rest of my submissions.

In fact, isn't it possible to use "full" RobotC whenever you can use Natural Language, since one is built on top of the other?

Yes, you can use normal RobotC Commands in the Natural Language, since what the natural language mainly does is give you a big library of "natural language" functions to use.
