What's the major difference between lowl-level and high-level computer programming? Is high-level programming a lot more difficult to learn?

A high-level programming language is a programming language with strong abstraction from the details of the computer. In comparison to low-level programming languages, it may use natural language elements, be easier to use, or be from the specification of the program, making the process of developing a program simpler and more understandable with respect to a low-level language.

The main advantage of high-level languages over low-level languages is that they are easier to read, write, and maintain.
