    Subject / thread / theme.

    Hello.

    I want to say I don't know the difference between prepositions (for instance). What should I say?

    1. I don't know/undertstand this thread.
    2. I don't know/undertstand this theme.
    3. I don't know/undertstand this subject.

    I hope you understood me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    There is a word missing from sentences 2 and 3.

    You might say "I don't know anything about this subject" when it is clear that the subject is prepositions. However, that doesn't make it clear that your problem is not knowing the difference between prepositions.

    You gave the most natural version in your original post. "I don't know the difference between prepositions."
