Hi,

I've mostly studied Japanese on my own, so I don't have the best reference for when I'm saying things correctly and I could use some help as I start to express more complicated ideas.

So, with that in mind, I'd appreciate any help you could give me on the following idea I'm trying to express.

兄と話すことがちょっと難しいです。かれに何かおしえると、十度言わなくてはいけません。
What I want to say:
"My older brother is hard to talk to. When I tell him something, I have to repeat it ten times."

I know there may be a ton of mistakes here, so よろしくお願いします ;)

That's not so bad. I would say;
兄に説明するのはちょっと難しいんです。かれに何か教えるには、十回同じことを繰り返さなければいけません。

Also I'd probably say 面倒くさい rather than 難しい. Because it seems like it's more of a pain in the rear than actually difficult.
