    I said art because that class in elementary school was so much fun! Who can beat an art project that's edible (gingerbread houses)? Ahh, the good old days. I would've said English (as in reading/literature), but the books and passages they assigned in my high school were mostly horrible excuses for good writing that somehow became "classics." That sorta ruined it for me.

    It varied a lot, depending very much on the teachers... I've always had very eclectic tastes in subjects (I changed my major pretty much every semester in my degree...), and a good teacher could make an otherwise boring subject (in one case, economics) interesting...

    English (as in learning my first foreign language). I did enjoy other stuff, too, and sometimes I regret that I have always seen myself so much as a humanities-person. I could have had so much fun (or even a well-paid job) if I'd just stuck to chemistry.

    I think I'd have got a kick out of Home Ec, too, but that wasn't on my school's curriculum.

    eh? no music? WHAT?
    As with volpone, my preferences changed, but Music was always a favourite. Even half of my class singing out of tune could not detract from the beauty that the other half created, almost reluctantly (as kids are at that age) and we could lounge on our chairs with no stupid desks in front of us, and it was a nice room.
    But again, one year we had a great teacher for ancient Greek (this was in year 4 so it was rather less highbrow than it sounds) and another time we actually understood loads in maths which made it actually fun suddenly. But music - almost always a favourite!

    wow, I can't believe I forgot history on that list. It was one of my favorite subjects.

    Well, if you're talking college, definitely English. In elementary school, I liked it all, and I was always teachers' pet. :D In high school, I liked math a lot. Strange, huh?

    My favorite classs was my Grahic Arts classes in high school. Basically just a bunch of geeks learning how to silk screen. Very fun, & alot of creative freedom. The teacher was so laid back, he allowed us to watch old horror flicks, & bloody action flicks. He unfortuantly died during my senior year. I miss the hell out of that guy
