Well its like this, a high level language is a language for programming computers which does not require detailed knowledge of a specific computer, as a low-level language does.High-level languages do not have to be written for a particular computer, but must be compiled for the computer they will work with.High-level languages are closer to human language than low-level languages, and include statements like GOTO or FOR which are regular words

On the other hand, a low level language is a computer programming language that is close to machine language.Machine language is at the lowest level, because it is the actual binary code of 1s and 0s that the computer understands.Assembly languages are low- level languages which are translated into machine code by an assembler.Each assembly language instruction corresponds to one machine language instruction, but assembly language is easier notation for the programmer to use than machine code.
