Let's talk about Spanish in English :)... I'm a native, but I'm curious... Which are the most difficult things about Spanish from the perspective of a foreigner?. I could list some of the most common mistakes people can do in Spanish (even natives), but I want to know your point of view first!

I think distinguishing between Catalan vs Castillan is kind of difficult. Any tips on how to spot these?

Wow, this one I never saw it coming. For me as a Spanish speaker, Catalan doesn't looks or hears like Spanish at all. Catalan has more similarities with Portuguese, Italian and French from my point of view. If I see a text in Catalan I couldn't understand it nor identify it :o
