True to its name, this lesson covers the basic language syntax rules: code structure, statements, delimitation, variables, assignment, plus rules and guidelines for identifier names. Of course, those are language independent aspects, but the latter part of the lesson focuses on Python-specifics such as keywords and built-in functions. It then concludes with three very important introductions: how to create and call functions, how to import functionality from other Python modules, and the raw_input() built-in function which can be used to obtain user input from the command-line.
