Pseudocode (pronounced "Sue-doe-code")
Psedocode looks a lot like a programming language but it isn't, because computers don't understand it. It is because Humans understand pseudocode and computers do not, that makes pseudocode really useful. Professional programmers that make software, apps or playstation games normally know how to write code in just one of the hundreds of different programming languages. This means that if you have a team of programmers that all understand different programming languages and you want them all to make a new game, you can write the code in pseudocode and give them each a copy. They will be able to understand your pseudocode and then write code in the programming language they understand.
