In general, we can easily read high level languages but not low level languages.

In C++ or Java for example, we can obviously know what's going on
[source lang="cpp"]Game.load();Game.run();Game.shutDown();[/source]

but it's hard to understand the low level languages like assembly or machine code

[source lang="plain"]MOV AL, 1hMOV CL, 2hMOV DL, 3h10101001100101010010100[/source]

C is low level language compared to Java or Python in that it provides access to "low level stuff" such as memory address, but is high level language compared to assembly/machine code in that it uses keywords similar to English.

C on the other hand, can be low level language in that it provides access to "low level stuff" like memory address, but also can be high level language in that codes can be human friendly and provide abstraction as ATC said.

MOV AL, 1h
MOV CL, 2h
MOV DL, 3h
