English to me was always the 'bees-knees'! Never had a problem learning it. Top of claas in it all my School years, with 'A' for Junior & '7' for Senior.
Did Speech & Drama as well, so both subjects 'helped' each other.
Am fascinated by our language, & to this day, still 'informally' study it. Buy as many books on it, especially those by Prof Davis Crystal, as I can. Get DVD's from 'The Great Courses' on it & many other subjects' which interest me.
I LOVE just 'soaking up' the knowledge! My Mother read to me from a very early age, so 'words' were my 'friends'.
Mathematics.....hated it, I could not make 'sense' of it at all, especially Maths B. Failed Junior Maths, which I knew I would. Did ok in rest of my 8 subjects, though.
Then I got a job, which involved having to do precise Maths, but because it 'all made sense' to me, I had no problems with it. Topped every work exam I did, including 'Dux' four times of very lengthy training Courses. I was just SO happy!
I much prefer English. I was always better at reading and writing. I always found mathematics hard, and something to be endured until my formal schooling was over. I have never really needed any of the different streams of mathematics such as algebra or calculus or geometry. Simple arithmetic has always been sufficient. Everyone needs to read, write and spell, so I am grateful I am better at English.
