Get an underground map of Paris and learn how to consult it. It’s free and you can get it at tickets offices all around the city.
Each line is identified by a color that you will see all around yourself inside the stations. Together with the Métro you will find 5 lines of the RER, a railway network, that connects Paris suburbs, whose lines are partly underground. On the map you will notice some white spots that signal the interchange stations, where you can change line right from the station.
