I am trying to learn deeper about "glue" words in the French language but it's so hard.

For example those words:
de = of, about, from, to, for, with, in, on, upon, out of, some, any
le = the, him, it
la = the, her, it
que = whom, that, which, what
qui = who, whoever, whom, that, which. what

They can mean so many things for just one word, and there is more "glue" words than that.

Am I dumb who doesn't understand this ? Please let me know if there are some kind of simple trick to learn all of this.

You aren't dumb. It is hard, but you will get the hang of it.

Thanks, I has consider myself many times to be little dumb when I don't get these nutz words to a logical simple explained rule so I can remember how it works everytime.

Well, think about the poor french guys who learn English : while they are used to use one word in French, they must learn 5 english words
