Small Basic is a beginner .NET language by Microsoft. It has been in development for quite some time, and was recently released a little over a year ago. It is very international, and is available in over 20 languages.  Small Basic is actually a toned down version of Visual Basic.NET, running on the .NET 3.5 framework.

Extensions

If you can't find a function you need to use in a program in Small Basic's main library, you can write an extension for it in any other .NET language (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/13340.how-to-create-a-small-basic-extension.aspx).  If you do not wish to create your own extension you can download some other extension, such as PowerExtension (https://powerextension.codeplex.com/) or LitDev's Extension (http://litdev.hostoi.com/). An comprehensive list of extensions is available here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/smallbasic/thread/2a510e0f-e5e1-4f90-aa84-0ed484bbd64f.
