Which it's correct? With or without the word "that"? The clear vocabulary and explanations (that) your curriculum gave you may seem different than the language you encounter when talking with a native speaker.

I think it is OK either way. With or without the word "that". But I think it sounds even better this way: "The clear vocabulary and explanations from your curriculum may seem different than the language you encounter when talking with a native speaker."

The word "that" is optional, but it should be "different TO the language..."

'Different than' is used in American English, 'different to' in UK English. If you want to make sure that it sounds right for everybody, it's probably best to say 'different from'.
