I am not able to understand the Spot Rate and Froward Rate and the comparison between them theoritically. Can anyone explain that in lay-mam language? (Prepairing for the interviews)

Spot rate: Current rate at current date.

Forward Rate: A forward rate is what the rate ought to be  (based on interest rate differentials, SWAP points etc) some time in the future.
