Forums - General Discussion - What is/was your favorite subject in school?

I graduated from high school in 2009. My favorite subjects were:

History: I loved to learn about the history of Brazil and discovering more about the great wars.

- Portuguese: Reading books, poems, chronicles, and even comic books to learn more about my native language was a lot of fun.

- English: It was really fun, because when I was a teen, I knew more about english than the rest of my class.

- Geography: Not exactly my favorite in the later years, but it was very cool to learn more about foreign countries

Spanish (and linguistics in general), literature, writing and history; in that order.



English and Literature were the only classes I really enjoyed through high school. I was a good all around student.

I tried to do well in Spanish but it was a real struggle. Ironically only after graduating from university did I commit to learning Spanish again. I love it now and can read and speak it almost fluently.

You are almost fluently in spanish? Then you should be able to understand some portuguese too, since they are very similar.

Physics mostly, Biology, Chemistry and Math second.

Religion and social sciences were also great because we had very cool down to earth teachers. I didn't like my history and English teachers. I hated writing unless it was a science paper. One year I had a cool English teacher who was fine with me reading and doing book reports on sci-fi instead of poems and literature. She also let the class pick movies to analyze like the breakfast club. It's always better when learning goes in both directions. That year we also went to see Shakespeare in the theater (play). Much better than reading an old dusty book :)

Physics experiments were always the best though. How many transformers can you combine to make a iron ring shoot up to the ceiling. I'm surprised nobody got hurt in class all those years as we were usually free to experiment with stuff that's pretty much off limits nowadays.



Was always Science and still is science (mainly biology, with a fascination for physics, but something I knew I never had the skill to truly study rigorously for. )

History was always a close second.

Yeah, ever since I learned Japanese in university I have become obsessed with learning languages. I am advanced and literate in both Japanese and Spanish. I am currently learning French.

Thinking about what languages I want to learn next. I think it will be Arabic.

I think a good base is to know the six official languages of the U.N.- English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese.

How different is Brazilian Portuguese from the Portuguese spoken in Portugal.

It's pretty much the same, it's more about the accent, and some words are different. For example, here in Brazil, we call cell phones "Celular" and in Portugal, they say "Telemóvel".



Criminal Psychology. Took it as an elective. Fun stuff.

US. History. All of history is fun. But whereas world history during a course is like reading a series of short stories, U.S. History is like a continuous novel filled with vibrant characters filled great flaws clashing, cultures and technology pushing their way into the narrative, and tiny moments of inflection that change everything.
