I'm only in 2nd year but we've done digestion and I think that an enzyme is a protein that speeds up a reaction without being used up in the reaction. So an example would be amylase

enzyme specificity means that an enzyme will only work with only one substrate. Example would be amylase (enzyme) works on starch (substrate) to make maltose (product).

enzyme specificity is the fact that enzymes dont work for all substrates . each enzyme acts on a unique substrate.for example the enzyme amylase only acts on starch it doesnt act on lipids.
