BitTorrent is a way of sharing files that is non-centralized. Torrent sites on the internet host links which are used by BitTorrent clients to connect to other users on the internet who are sharing the file. In essence, you are downloading the files from other users rather than a centralized source. It is still illegal to download copyrighted files.

BitTorrent is a P2P (peer-to-peer) sharing application. Users generate torrents of files that they wish to share and publish the torrent link. When you wish to get a file, you look for the torrent link. BitTorrent uses the torrent to connect to the host computer which has the required file.

You first need to have the BitTorrent software. Then, to download something, you need a file called a torrent. For example, if I want to download a song, I find a torrent for that song, save it, and then open the torrent in BitTorrent. Then it downloads.
