Which lesson was the toughest in your opinion? (eng. -> span.)

Hey guys, share your thoughts about lessons that took you a long time to master or lessons that you still redo on a regular basis. My arch-enemy at this point is Verbs: Present 2 even though it's getting better every day. Cheers!

Subjunctive, no question about it.

Subjunctive Past (hubiera, pudiera, hiciera, hiciese...). I finished the unit ages ago, and can memorize the verb patterns well enough, but I still feel totally incompetent when I see it used in practice. It just doesn't come to me easily for whatever reason. When those questions pop up in general review, I just stare for a few seconds and then guess something basically at random.

The subjuntivo is always bad, so I will take it for granted and skip it (and scarcerer already mentioned it) I think the Science and Medicine lessons are the hardest ones. I guess its a personal case problem, none of these languages are my native ones and to be honest, I never use those words neither in my real life lessons nor in my daily routine while practicing with native speakers. So, I simply didnt know a lot of the English terms and even less Spanish terms.

I struggled with the Verbs: Past, but Subjunctive (mentioned above) is definitely the most painful one. Especially if you are not an English native, like me.

Directions, of all things. I somehow wiped it from my mind completely.

Verbs: Past used to be super hard for me but I did it over and over and it got easier. =D
