    I'm your classic "jack of all trades" - I like a little of everything, so it's hard to nail down a favorite subject. I love science, literature, humanities, some history, art, and I've recently started enjoying math, even though I hated math in high school. I went back to college in January and had to take a refresher math class because I'd forgotten how to do algebra (it had been twenty years since I'd done it). I just finished the class last week, and I ended up loving it.

    My favorite class of all time was an astronomy class I took during my first college attempt. The stars and planets fascinated me, and the professor was hilarious. I was actually kinda depressed when I turned in my final exam because it meant the class was over.

    I'm at 10th grade now and I like ICT, Maths and English, but I hate History and Geography.

    Ancient Greek? That's so random. My school did not have such an extensive course selection. What are you planning to go into after college? It's awesome that you like the sciences, I hope that you pursue it (even though I'm a total stranger, but yay correcting the gender balance!).

    In high school, I loved history, social studies, and English. But whether you like those subjects is so dependent on the teachers. If you get a boring or disengaged teacher then it's not fun to participate in class. Looking back on history though, I'm a bit unhappy it was so Eurocentric. We learnt about the WWI/WWII repeatedly, always with the same facts and a focus on causes, course, results (limited to the Western World). While that was helpful, it would have been nice to learn something beyond that limited perspective.

    Teachers that tie curriculum to current affairs or relate it to real life area also super helpful - it makes concepts easier to understand! Without that tie back, things can easily seem abstract and irrelevant.

    I study the Sciences and it can take a toll on your resolve at times but it's what I'm honestly "into". However, I couldn't without guilt name Biology or Chemistry or even Math as my favorite subject. That prize would definitely have to go to either Language or Literature. Both of these subject have an element of creativity to them that I find to be a relief from the usual facts and theories of the science subjects.

    I write poems and short stories and read in my free time when I'm feeling stressed by school and I just need a "breather". I think of doing Language and Literature as a hobby of sorts.

    When I was in school, I loved my English/reading classes the most.

    I was really good at math, so didn't have any problems with it, but it wasn't exactly fun either.

    My least favorite would've been history, though. I'm awful with names and dates, but that's all the classes were....memorizing names and dates. Bleh.

    When I was in high school, I loved literature classes - it was so much fun! I've also always loved learning foreign languages because I find it easy.
    My least favorite subjects were PE and chemistry.
    Now, as a university student, I really enjoy ontology classes and aesthetics classes. I hate medieval philosophy and ancient Greek:(

    I have always loved English. It was the subject that I was the best at while in school, and got the best grades in. I always hated math though. There was just something about it that I was never able to get. I didn't get the best grades in that class, and sometimes it was just too hard. Even in college I haven't had the best record with math.

    Ay, I just dreamed this night that I had to do my two last years of high school again -- even if in my dream, I had been there and done that and was just out of university with my degree. Funny thing is, even though IRL my favorite subjects were art and french (I mean, literature-french, since we're French; your equivalent of English), I hated those classes in my dream, because what was being studied and said was just... not enough, not deep enough, frustrating. I enjoyed math the most in my dream, mostly because I forgot most about it and then it was fresh, new, interesting and challenging. I wonder.
