    I'm sure that most, if not all of us have been in school at one point. Whether we passed or not is a different matter ;).

    • What was your favorite class in your schooling?
    • What was your least favorite class?
    • What was your hardest class?
    • Is there a class you wish you took?
    Me...
    1. I really am loving Economics, it helps me to think of the world differently.
    2. I'm really bad at math, so any high school math class.
    3. Chemistry is really hard, and I feel like dropping it.
    4. If I could go back, I might want to have taken French earlier in my high school years.

    What was your favourite class in your schooling?
    It was a writing class, one that particularly was focused on critical thinking. It took me a fair while to get the rhythm of the course integrated into me, but once it did, the rest became bearable. At one point, when I was picking up a graded assignments, the teacher stopped me and said that my grade on the assignment was so good, my paper would be used as the example paper in future classes - and said it loud enough so the whole class heard. It was glorious, but awkward.

    What was your least favourite class?
    There was a physics course I enrolled in once, and I thought it would be a good idea to learn the subject, since I had never delved into physics before, and believed it would be a good idea. Unfortunately, the instructor did nothing more than quote the textbook - which wasn't much help, as I already couldn't understand the textbook, so hearing it parrotted did me no favours (for example, why would I come to the lecture if this would be all I'd hear?). I dropped the class by the second meeting, and never looked back.

    What was your hardest class?
    Either the aforementioned writing class, or an upper-division business writing course I had to take. In both cases, the material was extremely difficult, but very rewarding to get it finished and submitted. They gave the feeling of a hard task and a job well done, and I didn't do that badly in either course as well.

    Is there a class you wish you took?
    Physics. See also above. Not that specific class, but I want to know how it works so that 1) I can say that I did it, 2) I can guide others to do the same.

    - It either has to be Art, or English. Art is my hobby, in other words, my life, and so is English! Both subjects aren't really hard, and can be really creative.

    - I don't have any least favourite class.

    - I have to say that mathematics is getting harder as the years go by, yet still enjoyable.

    - I am still in school, so there is no need to go back!

    • I really enjoyed this science class a few years back, the teacher was made the whole subject fun. It was my favourite class that year.
    • Human Bio, my teacher was so monotone and boring, I ended up doing most of the work at home because I seriously couldn't keep my attention span for more than 10 min
    • Maths last year was quite tricky, they changed quite a bit of the content which ended up making the whole course harder, they also made the exam harder. It's the second hardest maths so its to be expected but they've made such drastic changes and slapped it to us, its honestly really unfair T_T
    • Yes, I used to do Japanese because languages was compulsory for 2 years and then you could drop it. I obviously ended up dropping it because it was too tricky. But that was only because I had no study ethics whatsoever back then, if only I had studied then I could've continued it. It was too late by the time I realised that learning a language is a useful thing :sweat:

    Favorite class: Either the physical/chemical sciences and psychology or English. The sciences have readily applicable practical applications, so they're just more interesting (Build a catapult? Burn some Magnesium ribbon? Electrolyse water into O2 and H2 in separate containers? Yeah!). Psychology is also interesting and applicable in regular life, and I enjoy English composition more than classic literature. All of those rank pretty high for me.

    Least favorite: Prob history. I get it, it's important, but it mostly seems like just fact after fact for memorization. If more teachers could teach like those fun and interesting Youtube history lessons, I would probably enjoy history classes more. That and acknowledgement of the negative parts of history. First nine years of my schooling were in one state, and our history classes all strongly acknowledged Native American exploitation/genocide, the incredible cruelty and brutality of slavery in America (continuing into the bloodshed of the civil rights movement), the harsh injustice of Japanese internment camps. The rest of my schooling was in a new state where that stuff was mostly ignored by the curriculum other than one renegade history teacher who made sure we knew the bad too, bless him. That's the part of history we need to remember, the bad stuff, so we can be sure not to repeat it. *cough*Trumpandhispotentialinternmentcampsformuslims*cough*

    Hardest: Math, yo. I'm good up through the upper Algebras, but once you start getting Trig and Calc, it becomes less tangible and more obscure. Like those fun science experiments above, once I can't actually use a practical application for something, I start to think it's useless in my own life and lose motivation.

    Wish I took: some kind of money-centric class. Personal econ, micro econ, macro econ, I don't know. I've just never taken one of those before, I've just learned through advice and experience.

    ~~~

    Aside from the English Comp up there, I think this means I'm mostly drawn to practical classes that are directly observable or are useful even outside of their field.

    I'm loving psychology/American problems. The teacher is very energetic, and makes things exciting

    Unfortunately that's physics. I'm normally a huge science fan, but this year my teacher is so dull. The work isn't challenging, she hardly teaches (all book work and videos played on bad speakers), and the labs are painfully dull.

    Hardest is probably math. I was told I should take AP stats, but the problem is it was near the end of the day. I was not focused, and every time I blinked it seemed like I missed so much.

    I kinda wish I took boxing. And that it got approved. I would have had fun in that class

    Let's see. I'm currently loving Calculus AB despite how stressful it is, and it of course has been my hardest class. I actually really dislike chemistry. I didn't get it all, mostly likely because of the packets my teacher decided to assign us. I also which I had took AP World History because I heard it was a great class and I don't want to take it in college.

    My favourite class is Biology! I'm really into bèta subjects, but Biology is the one that interests me the mosts also, I barely have to calculate anything yaay!
    My least favourite class right now is Physics, not because it's not interesting but because the assignments are such a drag to do. The way they ask the questions is pretty vague too, which is why Physics is the hardest subject to do right now too (yes, it's even harder than Math - what is wrong with me? O_O).
    I think it should've been better if I had chosen to take Spanish classes instead of Geography, for that would've allowed me to drop Latin. Instead, I'm stuck with Latin until after my exams... yaay >_>

    My favorite class is my journalism class. Which makes sense, we work on a newspaper in there, and I want to be a journalist.

    I fucking hate Geometry. I really do. It's one of the most arbitrary and unnecessary classes we have in our curriculum. In fact, I honestly think Algebra and Geometry should be replaced with something with real world applications. You know, learning how to balance your finances, doing taxes, etc. That'd be much more helpful in the long run.

    Gonna go with Geometry again. Have a solid B in every class except for that one.

    I think if I could go back, I'd pick French over American Sign Language. It's such a pretty language. I also would've taken Law Enforcement I this year, so I wouldn't have to take it next year to get into Forensic Science my senior year.

    I thought you were talking about RPG classes. A public ask thread, not a bad idea.
    What was your favorite class in your schooling?
    History is by far my favorite. It's tough to explain why I like it so much, maybe it's because it's the only school subject I'm actually somewhat decent at... I used to enjoy classes like bio and English too but bio became too hard for me to understand so I dropped it and English started getting tedious and boring for me after a while, now it's just a drag.
    What was your least favorite class?
    (Contains some swearwords) Right now it's probably English. Not too brag or anything, but we had a Cambridge test last year I got an A on that, which means my level of English is at C2 level on the European standard, basically the same as a native speaker. The final exam requires your English level to be at B1/B2 and fyi it goes C2>C1>B2>B1>A2>A1, so that's at least 2 levels lower than what I've already accomplished with the Cambridge course. This wouldn't be a big deal if our teacher this year wasn't so fucking tense that he gave us so many assignments even if they were too easy. I suck at all my other subjects so obviously I'm not gonna waste my time on English stuff that's way too fucking easy, but our teacher doesn't realize that for some reason. He keeps pestering me about his shitty assignments that are basically useless and a waste of fucking time. Ugh, sorry for the rant and the swears.
    What was your hardest class?
    Math by far. I'm already taking the 'easier' kind of math classes, but I can still barely get by. Right I'm not even getting by and if my grades continue to stay as they are I won't be able to graduate. I'm confident about my upcoming tests though :3
    Is there a class you wish you took?
    No. The less school the better >_>

    Im just a freshman ^_^ so i got some time to go, but here is my opinion.

    1. My favorite class... hmm... none option please? just kidding haha. I like the computer programming class, mostly because i learn the most and actually look forward to going to that one.
    2. Least favorite class, like yours, has got to me math. Its not even that i suck at math (ok maybe i do but not too badly XD) but my teacher has to be over 60 years old, and is the most bland and boring person i have ever met.
    3. Hardest class is definitely math or mechanical drawing. Math, because i cant focus, and nobody can in my class mostly because boring things are hard to focus on. Mechanical drawing because its a whole bunch of concepts i don't understand.
    4. YES! Probably basic foods or baking because they get food and they get to make food and i would know how to make food if i took that class. But, dumb me, didnt, and now i have my pity parties when i see the kids and basic foods coming out with cookies or something.

    1. My favourite class is or i should classes are art, computer and english. I love English class, specially literature. Art is always awesome cause i love drawing and computer because i like computer codings like css, html, c++( upto my syllabus).

    2. Least favourite class hmm.......i will say it maths because it is really really hard. I know many people are good in maths but if i say about me the only thing math does is decreasing my grade point. So....it is my least favourite subject but unfortunately i got it back in physics. ( physics includes maths).
    3. Math, math and only maths.

    4. I am still studying.
