The language is a program containing rules and guidelines to help us in making programs. There are various languages like C, Basic, COBOL, PASCAL, FORTRAN etc. The rules of instructions (commands) are called syntax of the command.
There are various levels in languages. The languages which are near to machine language are called low level languages and the languages which are near to day to day English are called high level languages. High level languages will have a compiler, which translates the programs to low level languages.
