comment auf/für die Prüfung lernen
»Auf« cannot be wrong. Quotations: 1) »Er hat von früh bis spät <...> auf die Prüfung gelernt.« 2) »Ich habe zu viel auf die Prüfung gelernt, ich kann gar nichts mehr aufnehmen.« 3) »Er hat Tag und Nacht auf die Prüfung gelernt. Obwohl er sich so gut vorbereitet hat, ist er durchgefallen.«

comment Was macht es so schwierig die deutsche Sprache zu lernen? / Why is German so hard to learn?
@Mihai You're right. Prepositions are usually difficult in any language. English is no better in this regard, by the way. Memorizing is often the only way to get them right. Sometimes it's not so clear-cut even for German native speakers. An exapmple would be a long-debated question wether there's a (significant) difference between "sprechen von" or "sprechen über".

comment Meaning of “richtig” in “nicht richtig Deutsch können”
Dictionaries don't usually make a clear distinction between German adverbs and adjectives because they are often identical in form. Even though it says "adjective" in the dictionary, it doesn't mean it can't be used as an adverb as clearly seen from the examples provided by Duden.

comment What is the best German translation for the verb phrase “to upgrade software”?
There's really no big difference in the common usage between "upgrading" or "updating to a newer version" because a new version often implies new features, improvements, patches and keeping the program up to date in general. So the German "aktualisieren" works fine for both words in this particular context unless each term is specifically defined to mean different things in the documentation.

I don't quite understand your last paragraph. How does accusative vs. dative have an effect on our understanding of time (one-time vs. long-term)?

@Wrzlprmft It's just that it was easier to come up with examples for these two words where I didn't see any difference in meaning. But now thanks to your explanations it has become a bit clearer.
