The simplest way I can explain it is:
A broadcast domain = a subnet = a network

Imagine going into a building that has a bunch of rooms with people conversing about. If you walk into one room and talk to just those people, your broadcast stays in that room. Going into a different room will be a different broadcast domain/subnet/vlan/network.

This is how I always explain it.
if you want to talk to some one in the room you are in (you broadcast domain) you put your hand up and shout there name out and hope they respond. so once you get enough people in the room it gets very noisy.
If they are in another room (not on your broadcast domain), you walk quietly to the door open it and ask the kind gentleman (router) in the corridor to pass a message on to the guy in room B.

A subnet is a layer 3 addressing concept, while a broadcast domain is layer 2/Ethernet.
