Your favorite subject when you were at school.

Hello guys,

Please let's talk about our favorite subject when we were at school.

Mine was ''history'' because I was very curious to know what happened to this world when I was not yet born.

What about yours and why?

Anything that involved drawing and history of art, but I also liked math, physics, biology, languages... Apparently, I liked school. I would go back again if I could.

The only "favourite" thing I had in school was recess. Hardly a subject.

But I tolerated Polish (literature and grammar), English, lessons about Polish society and state (I don't know whether it has its counterpart in English). Stuff like that. But I rarely attended school, I must admit. And I have no regrets - at least I have my backbone intact.

For me it has to be astronomy because many of the things we learned were still only hypotheses and it was never wrong to have fancy imaginations. Just thinking about how big and mysterious the outer space is made me appreciate the beauty of science.

Math and English. Both came somewhat natural to me, so I could concentrate on learning freely instead of struggling with the subject.

I also liked the fact that in math exams, 99.9% of the time there was only one correct answer. On the other hand, in subjects like history or biology it wasn't always clear what facts the teacher expected to be listed to get full marks.

Anything that involved a lot of writing, so mainly English and history.  The way history was taught in school was mostly frightfully boring though; I've learned much more interesting stuff from my own reading as an adult.

I wasn't bad at maths, science etc; in fact I was good at maths itself, but I just wasn't very interested.  I knew how I got the answer,and quite enjoyed the rhythmic predictability of a page of quadratic equations, but I didn't know why I was supposed to want the answer! :)
