Teaching assembly language is not easy since many problems must be
solved before asking students to write the first program.
Take care and present structure and constraints of the real machine.
Consider the structure and the syntax of the assembly instructions.
Parrot offers us an easy to use machine, only registers.
Assembly language is close from Perl 5 an other language our students
are using.

* We have now a first experience of teaching parrot.
* We have been surprised to see how studends did apreciate
programmation on such a platform.
