directly understood by the computer 0111011100111
Needs no translation - very fast to execute
Assembly Language
uses simple instructions
needs translation High Level languages Translation programs All computer programs need to be converted to machine language (binary) in order to execute.

easier to understand for the programmer
easy to correct errors and test programs
