こんにちは!I just wanted to let you know that Japanese people don't really use their word for "confusing," they usually just say "hard" or something like that. For example: "I find Japanese grammar confusing" = 私は日本語の文法が難しいです。→(literal translation:) For me, Japanese grammar is hard. A more simple sentence would be 日本語の文法は難しいです。→ Japanese grammar is hard. Happy studying! :D

That is interesting to know, as we would refer to things that are hard as things which are very difficult; rather than things that we don’t understand fully. I appreciate that you shared this.

ありがとうございます!
