A rather simple explaination should be used for now.

Say there are some characters "a,b,c,d,e,f,g"

Serializatioin has to do with the fact that when writing files, such things have to be shipped down the wire one at a time, conceptually.

Hence, many files in Java which are normally classes, can be shipped down the wire ( internet ) with sufficient work. This is often talked about as serialization. Files, classes or what have you.
