What aspects do you think are the most difficult in Spanish? In my opinion, phonetics is fairly easy, except the pronunciation of the letter r. However, I think grammar is very complicated. Sometimes, I don't understand how to use the subjunctive and my teacher tells me that it is normal, that it is important to to have a lot of patience and practice as much as possible with Spanish-speaking people. Also, I should improve my prepositions, I don't know how to use these words and it's very frustrating. I would like to master all these aspects. When this is so, I will sound like a native!

Getting that for you now...
