    Nothing much in terms of meaning. Usage varies, but you'll pick that up as you learn.

    Hi,
    If I thought giving you an example would help you understand better, I would done that. But since you ask:
    "She is speaking to a friend on the phone. She talks a lot"
    "It's now Mr Smith's turn to speak. Mr Smith is going to give us a talk"
    ("Talk" can be a noun, "speak" can't)
