Working with modules in TypeScript is not really a TypeScript thing, since ES2015 and iterations since have improved the use of discrete modules in JavaScript. We're not gonna dwell on it too long here, but it's worth mentioning a few key points in case you're not familiar with the syntax. We'll start with a bit of history.

In early versions of TypeScript, there was a concept of internal and external modules, and as we've already said, ES2015 introduced native modules to JavaScript, So TypeScript adapted its terminology to match. Internal modules are now called namespaces.

This is a TypeScript specific way to organize code, and it has its origins in "csharp." This is an advanced topic, so I suggest that you look at the TypeScript documentation if you're interested in finding out more about them.

External modules are simply called modules, and follow the same pattern as JavaScript modules.
