We present a verification system for a variant of Hoare-logic that supports proving by forward symbolic execution. In addition, no explicit weakening rules are needed and first-order reasoning is automated. The system is suitable for teaching program verification, because the student can concentrate on reasoning about programs following their natural control flow and proofs are machine-checked.
