School is a place where we spend a lot of time. Maybe even too much. For some people school is a way to entertain themselves, spending nine or eleven years with friends. It may also be considered punishment from above. Other students like school, because it’s an inexhaustible source of knowledge.
Anyway it is inevitable and one has to get accustomed to it somehow.
I belong to the less numerous group of people who like school. Of course, I don’t mean the building or the class as a group of students because we are all different. I like the thought that day by day changes in my consciousness take place. I am sure that tomorrow I will be cleverer than today. In a year or two I will be able to think differently, I will have my own opinion on various aspects of life.
School would be more effective if we were in smaller groups: twenty-four students within one class are too much. I would prefer a maximum of ten people. I am not afraid to answer at the lessons and get marks for it. Moreover it would be possible to spend less time at school.
I believe that more attention should be paid to our practical skills. We have a lot of theory but we cannot apply our knowledge in everyday life. If pupils saw any connection between life and science any subject would be really interesting for them.
My favourite subjects now are English, Geometry and Chemistry. I didn’t like Maths at all only two years ago, but now I see, that it’s one of the best ways to develop the brain. Chemistry is difficult and we don’t carry out many experiments at the lessons, but I like the way the teacher explains the material to us. We often watch films and make presentations, which makes the educational progress interesting.
English is the best subject of all the others. I understand that it will help me greatly in the future. I will be able to get more information from all over the world, no matter what professional field I choose. It is extremely important nowadays. People from different countries share their knowledge and ideas using the Internet, publishing videos and articles. I don’t take English just as a set of grammar rules and words. I take it as a living system and try to absorb as much of it as I can.
I am happy to be acquainted with all our teachers. They are nice people. Seriously. I often think that if some of them were different I might have problems. But I don’t.
And the last point. Five days a week at school would be enough. I don’t understand why the sixth day was introduced at all. And I am perfectly sure that teachers aren’t happy to work on Saturday either.
