System of linear equations is a collection of equations in which each equation in the system represents a straight ilne, that is the equations of degree 1( linear).
On the other hand, a nonlinear system of equations is a collection of equations that may contain some equations of a line, but not all of them.
For example,
$\left\{\begin{array}{c}x+y=5\\ 3x+4y=2\end{array}\to$ system of linear equations.
$\left\{\begin{array}{c}x+y=1\\ y+{x}^{2}-5\end{array}\to$ system of non - linear equations.
