Tearaway methodical well-behaved
Disruptive actually struggle
- I'm' good at Maths and Physics.
- Certainly I enjoy Maths and Physics most as they are my favourite subjects. I find them interesting because these subjects relate to all things which happen in my life and the nature, for example the rule of expansion of solid substances,...
The subject I enjoy least is, to tell the truth, political education. At my age I think I cannot understand any concepts or thoughts on it. Therefore I find it very boring. What ideologies or political doctrines mean is nothing to our little mind.
