Interface Question

I have studying the use of interfaces. I believe I am getting a good grasp of the subject.
I do have one question.
Is it safe to say that an interface provides the methods that an object that implements that interface uses as a means of communication with other objects? ... hence the name interface.

Thanks for any and all assistance.

Correct. There may or may not be logical/direct relationship between those objects. That's what a loose coupling means.
But be clear with the use of Interface and Abstract Class.
I agree. Here's the link:
