Imagine a phone book that contains listings for all objects in your domain (computer account, user accounts, shares, printers, etc.)....Active directory is a listing of all those objects, much like a phone book.

When you need to find something, you can look it up in active directory. Each 'Global Catalog' server has a copy of the catalog (the 'phone book') and your domain controllers can look up objects in the directory.

The language that is used to communicate in Active Directory is LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, I think), a standard protocol

It's really hard to explain simply.
