I did very well in history and it came easily to me, but my favorite subject was English. I took every English class that was offered, and really enjoyed all of the writing courses. I had a few very effective teachers in those subjects that made all the difference too.
History, with literature as a fairly close second. When I was younger, I enjoyed the story-telling aspect of history, but now I'd say I enjoy the analytical aspect of it more, in other words, I find "thinking historically" more interesting than simply learning about the past. But history has always been my favorite subject.
Another vote for English. I have to say I never really thought of it as a subject until sixth form - before then it was just the interesting and exciting bit between the hours I was being told dull stuff...At degree level, I loved each of the options I took, which were mostly literature based, but I did enjoy American law too.
I enjoyed English most, but also liked chemistry and philosophy. When I graduated from high school, I thought I'd major in philosophy in college, but ended up as an English major. Literature offers, for me, a bit more daily satisfaction than the study of philosophy.
For me, it had a lot to do with whether I liked the teacher or not. At the secondary level, the work was neither hard enough nor interesting enough for that to be the primary issue. In other words, even though I now love history, I didn't find it particularly more interesting than, say, chemistry back then. So it depended mainly on which teachers were most enjoyable.
Content-wise, maybe my favorite was Japanese.
My favourite subject has always been Math. Its based on logic. Science was the next.
I opted for Mechanical Engineering as a profession in university which is, to me, nothing but Applied Mathematics and Science.
MY favorite subjecas is always ... ^_^
English / Literature / Writing
Haha thanks :)... So what part of english do you enjoy the most?
Commerce is the broader aspect of business, law and economics. It's kind of incorporating all three elements into one subject. So, yes - it's essentially business studies, but I do really enjoy the legal aspect as well. :D
Mine is also English, followed by Religious studies and French. By the way is commerce, how you say business?
Sorry I live in England and 'Commerce' in French means Business Studies, :)
