The difference seems subtle. In the context of these lessons, they both essentially mean side, although in my dictionary 面 (miàn) has a meaning leaning more towards face or surface. Other than that, seems you just need to get used to their common usage. 左边 zuǒbian: left side 右边 yòubian: right side 旁边 pángbiān: to the side 前面 qiánmian: in front 后面 hòumian: behind 上面 shàngmian: above/on surface 下面 xiàmian: below/underneath
