Python is an interpreted language. That means that, unlike languages like C and its variants, Python does not need to be compiled before it is run. Other interpreted languages include PHP and Ruby.
Python is dynamically typed, this means that you don't need to state the types of variables when you declare them or anything like that. You can do things like x=10 and then x="Hello World" without error
Python is well suited to object orientated programming in that it allows the definition of classes along with composition and inheritance.
In Python, functions are first-class objects. This means that they can be assigned to variables, returned from other functions and passed into functions.
