When light hits the boundary between two different materials, that can undergo both reflection and refraction.Reflection is the change in the direction of the wave that reaches the boundary between two materials. This implies a change in direction of waves when they collide with an obstacle.Refraction is the change in direction of waves as they move from one medium to another, followed by a change in speed and wavelength (the second half should have different permitivity of light to change their initial properties.)
