    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    Re: It has caused a lot if troubles to you/ for you?

    Before we start to answer your question, please edit your post:

    - You have misspelt "of" in your title
    - You have misspelt "trouble" in your title
    - We do not put a space on either side of a "slash". It should look like this: to you/for you
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Sorry about that.

    As a general rule, we say that something causes trouble for someone. As always though, context might dictate otherwise.
