Difference in Salesforce Development

Since I am new to Salesforce, and all the articles are difficult for me (due to difficulties in understanding English) Maybe someone will explain what the difference is and what is it for and how do they connect to each other?
  1. Aura
  2. Lightning Component
  3. Lightning Web Component
  4. VisualForce
  5. Lightning Aura Components
  6. Aura Attributes

Hi Nik, 

Find some of the basic details below 

Aura - It is a UI framework from which we can build a client to server side and server to client-side communication. You can develop web applications from this framework. In Salesforce, the lightning framework is built on the Aura. 

Lightning Component - It is a basic unit of Salesforce lightning framework which holds a piece of information or set of records. A lightning or flexi page consists of a number of lightning components. 
Two types of lightning components.
Standard component is one which is pre built and we do not have access to edit its code and the custom component is designed and developed by a developer like us. 

Lightning Web Component - It is a new method of creating a lightning components in salesforce which is based on the latest ECMA script standards. 

VisualForce - Visualforce is a web development framework that enables developers to build sophisticated, custom user interfaces for mobile and desktop apps that can be hosted on the Lightning Platform. You can use Visualforce to build apps that align with the styling of Lightning Experience, as well as your own completely custom interface.

Lightning Aura Components - same as lightning components. 

Aura Attributes - In simple terms, it is a variable in lightning. Attributes are defined to store a variable or an array or any object in Salesforce lightning components.
