The language grammar itself is identical since C++ is built on C however there are a few key differences: 1) There is some new syntax as it applies to classes and objects to learn but it is something that will carry across to other object oriented languages, 2)The use of classes and the grammar associated with it is not available in C (although you could build your own - but then why not just use C++), 3) The availability of the Standard Template Library (STL) is not something you will find in C, and 4) C++ is much more strict on type checking.

I'm sure there is more but those are the biggies.
