Are gmail, Wordpress considered to be web apps? What are the differences between a web app and a web script?
What languages do we need to use to build them?

Hi Philippe

web app it's similar a "site" where you open from every browser, in this case from every smrtphone. The most user language is Cordova, java, c++

Web script is a page who do something..

Think of application that resides within browser. And scope of that application is limited to the web browser. So it can't run offline. With some exceptions with apps like Pocket, which can run offline with saved data. To explain my definition, think of gmail app on mobile and gmail on browser, the instance remains common on device in online mode. Their functionality is limited to the online use. It can be made with any language and database, say like PHP, Ruby, Python etc. And can have any database like MongoDB, MySQL etc. It depends on how the app is made to function online.

Almost all modern websites are web application, it's like the old distinction between a static website which just provide information and dynamic website which allow interaction between users. So, the moment a website allow interaction, it become an application.
