History. It enriches my knowledge of the past, allows me to examine events with different viewpoints and I can learn (and not repeat!) from the pivotal mistakes of other people. It's also closely linked to current affairs, an area which I have much interest in.

It's definitely got to be chemistry. You might think it's boring, but when it comes to experiments, colours and chemicals make it a bit more fun - unlike calculations. It can be a little tough but if you think positively, you need not fear it.

I love English literature, despite the fact that this course is not offered at my school. I am fond of languages, especially English. There are only 26 letters in the alphabet, but they can be used to compose many words with different meanings. I appreciate this sophisticated language very much!

Band, because not only is it fun, it's easy to get a passing mark. My teacher is a great person. He doesn't yell, is kind, and gives us great music to play. He provides us with great musical opportunities. Band is da bomb!

My favourite would have to be P.E. All the other lessons require us to sit down and stare into space. P.E. also stops us from turning into the type of people that feast on fast food.

My favourite subject at school is maths. It's all numbers, so the answer is either right or wrong. No arguments. And algebra is awesome.

Jermaine Wong, 16

I have two: creative media and P.E. They both allow me to leave the classroom and relax. Specifically, I like the activities of shooting films and dancing. They're so freeing.

My favourite subject in school is maths because I understand it. To me, maths is very straightforward. My maths teacher says that maths is the language of the universe.

English. Once I can speak fluent English, I will be able to communicate with one-third of the world's population! Some phrases have similar equivalents in Chinese, such as: 'It takes two to tango'. Also, English pronunciation is beautiful.

My favourite school subject is art and design because it gives me a chance to express myself in an endless number of ways. It also allows me to be imaginative and creative, which is not possible in any other subjects because there are set lessons and work plans which restrict imagination.
