Expert Answer:

An echo  is a reflection of sound, arriving at the listener some time after the direct sound.

Reverberation is the persistence of sound in a particular space after the original sound is removed. A reverberation, is created when a sound is produced in an enclosed space causing a large number of echoes to build up and then slowly decay as the sound is absorbed by the walls and air.
