hi,

Regiospecific  reaction  is one in which  one direction of bond formation  or bond breaking is somewhat more preffered than the other direction . & when we get  one direction completely prefferd over other than this is called a regiospecific reaction.

Eg . elimination in alkyl halides     ;    we generally get most substituted  alkenes rather than the less substituted

 

Whereas  stereospecific reactions are those in which diff . stereoisomers of reactant   leads to diff . stereoisomer s of product

 You can see that in  Regiospecific  reaction  one reactant give s diff. isomers  while in  stereospecific diff,. isomer gives diff. products
