Python is a widely used, text-based general-purpose programming language. It takes a bit longer to lean than Scratch, but can be used to do much more. Python is very popular because it can be used for just about anything nowadays: GUI development, websites, data analysis, word processing & web browsers.
Python programs are easy to learn and use because the code is easy to read and write, compared to many other programming languages.
Python contains ready-to-use code which makes it easier to write complex programs quickly. Python is powerful. It can be used to write real-world programs. It is used by Google, NASA, and Pixar and some other big organisations.
