There are several answers to this question.

Internally a computer uses 1 and 0 as its means of storing information and commands.

Special patterns of 1 and 0 form commands (CPU instructions)

An assembler language generates these patterns

However assembler is difficult for humans to work with so we work in an easier computer languages such as 'Fortran', 'C++', 'Python', 'Java' etc and these get compiled into assembler and turned into the CPU's command patterns.
