Label all elements of the mixing desk
auxilaries allow you to send secondary feed of a channels audio signal to another destination - often used to apply effects to a channel by sending signal to an external effects unit or to a monitoring system such as foldback mix to headphones (http://www.mediacollege.com/audio/mixer/auxiliary-channels.html)
groups allow you to combine a number of channels for easy editing or mixing - often instruments and vocals would be grouped
Mixing desks are made up of channels depending on the type of recording you are doing you will be able to select a desk with the appropriate amount of channels.

Each channel will include the same set of components. They are either mono or stereo & often include the components in the image.
Busses are often used to sub group channels in order to apply processing to a number of channels at once. For example you often send drums or backing vocals to a separate buss or subgroup once you have balanced them so you can apply EQ and compression to the all of the drum or bvs at once.

It is essentially another routing option in the desk.
This may me the main stereo output which you monitor through your main mixing speakers.

Some desks have a number of monitoring options including outputs for more than one set of speakers, talkback and headphone mixes.

Routing to aux sends, busses, the main output, returns etc.
