What is the difference between a noun and a verb isn`t it the same?
Not at all.
A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea (or concept). This also includes emotions (when properly derived into noun form).
John, (The) President, Canada, clock, peace, and happiness are all nouns.
A verb is an action -- what the subject of a sentence does. Note that being is also an action, so if a sentence appears not to have a verb, check for 'is' or 'are'.
John *tried* to *become* the President of Canada, but *failed* to *collect* the most votes. (Where *word* is a noun).

Mary ran around the gym.
The dog barked all night.

Ooops -- the last sentence should be:
My favorite teacher was Mr. O'Hara.
