i am an English teacher and i usually come across a great deal of questions related to words, the other day a student of mine asked me the difference between the words human and human being but to be honest i had no suitable answer for him, i have also asked this question from a couple of teachers but they unfortunately came up with no convincing answer so i wanted to know what the difference between these two words is.

I thing the only difference is that human being is singular form and referrers to only one human and the word human beings is the plural form talking about a the entire species of human.
