Your question is very general. Too general I dare say. I've learned English since I was a little child and still haven't mastered it. It's one of the hardest things in learning a foreign (Indo-European) language.

(1) Yes, these little words can be confusing.
(2) If you have a good bilingual dictionary, it will be a very helpful aid.
(3) Here are a few examples:
(a) I ride on the bus./ I live on Maple Street. (In some English-speaking countries, I live in Maple Street.)/ I am in/on an elevator./ I don't work on the weekends (In some countries -- at the weekends).
(b) Please sit in/on the chair./ What time do you get up in the morning?/ There's some ice cream in the refrigerator./ It's the first time in three years that he has missed work. (In some countries -- for three years.)
(c) I am terrible at math./ Class starts at 8 o'clock./ She works at a bank.
(d) The people who visit usingenglish.com work very hard to learn this language./ The harder you study, the more you will learn./ I don't want the red hat. I want the blue one.
(e) I read a book./ I eat an apple. ("a" becomes "an" before a vowel sound.)/ A good student always asks lots of questions./ What a nice day!
Native speakers use these little words many times every day. I'm sure you will soon be using them, too. Good luck.
