A Script can be written in a Language.
A Language defines a set of Scripts.

Generally a script is written in an interpreted language such as VBScript, Perl or a shell script.
A language on the otherhand simply refers to any programming language be it interpreted, compiled or a hybrid (like java).
However within the subject of CGI many people write these programs using Perl and more recently VBScript so there is a tendency to call CGIs scripts. In fact I have seen people refer, incorrectly, to C scripts but what they actually mean is a CGI written in C (which is a compiled language).

A script is something that processes http requests and returns results.  It can be written in anything.  Most of the most complex ones that you see and probably like are written in C.
