A scripting language is a language that “scripts” other things to do stuff. The primary focus isn’t primarily building your own apps so much as getting an existing app to act the way you want, e.g. JavaScript for browsers, VBA for MS Office.

To learn this lesson better, I would recommend you to repeat the video a couple of times. When you find yourself in the web developer environment, you are going to be exposed to these terms so learning them right is a great idea.

Wikipedia says:

A scripting language, script language or extension language is a programming language that allows control of one or more software applications. "Scripts" are distinct from the core code of the application, as they are usually written in a different language and are often created or at least modified by the end-user. Scripts are often interpreted from source code or bytecode, whereas the applications they control are traditionally compiled to native machine code. Scripting languages are nearly always embedded in the applications they control.
