Python is a high-level, interpreted, interactive and object-oriented scripting language. Python is
designed to be very readable.
It uses English keywords frequently whereas other languages use punctuation.
It has fewer syntactical constructs than other languages and it makes use of indentation to mark the beginning and end of program blocks which can sometimes be less obvious to a beginner.
