So what's the difference between 'issue' and 'subject'? And when can I use them?
Well, basically, in some cases they can be used interchangeably. For example, 'The main issue of the story is their forbidden love.' or 'The main subject of the story is their forbidden love.'.
But, this is not always the case. So I am going to give you an easy way to know when to use which one:
If it is a problem or concern, use 'issue'. For example, 'The main issue with learning English is the pronunciation.'.
If it is related to a thought or discussion, use 'subject'. For example, 'The main subject of conversation was English pronunciation'.
Hope this clears up any concerns you may have when to use these words.
