The lesson description calls Python an “interpreted” language. What does that mean?
An interpreter takes the code you write an executes (runs) whatever actions you specified, creates the variables you created, and does a lot of behind-the-scenes work to ensure it runs smoothly or tells you about errors.
Python is called an interpreted language because it goes through an interpreter, which turns code you write into the language understood by your computer’s processor. Later on when you work on a project on your own computer, you will download and use the Python interpreter to be able to write Python code and execute it on your own!
