.Net is a framework. Imagine it as a huge library, providing you different classes, as well as the environment in which these classes work, including installations, version control, etc.

In order to use the framework, you need to write code in some language. It is already officially said that a lot (I heard about 17, but this was some time ago) of languages support the .Net framework. However, C# was especially designed to handle .Net.

In conclusion: C# is the language designed to use the .Net framework. However you can use other languages like VB, C++ or Java and still use the .Net framework.
