Fluenz is primarily designed to aid people who travel to other countries for a short stay, such as a vacation. You’ll learn how to order food in a restaurant, speak with a hotel clerk and ask directions. After two levels of Fluenz your language skills will be primarily limited to those topics. This is no doubt very helpful, but you won’t be conversing with the natives.
As for difficulties with the language, prepositions are by far the most confusing. I’ve come to believe it’s more about learning how native speakers use them, rather than how to translate them into English. It’s a bit difficult to explain but if you’re familiar with German and Russian perhaps you already have a grasp of usage.
This concept extends to phrases as well. For instance, in English we “take a picture” but in Italian you “make a photo.” So I’m finding word usage to be one of the more difficult aspects of the language.
