Science subjects

Science subjects
Science subjects are fundamental for day to day living as there is science in almost everything that people do, or use. But it certainly is not easy to understand, especially if students have yet to master complex vocabulary and math to understand certain concepts. Science subjects include complex areas like physics, biology and chemistry to simpler subjects like zoology, and botany. By understanding how things work, in mechanics, chemicals, animals, and plants, among others, it is possible to find solutions to problems that nature throws at humans, or problems that humans create for themselves. The list should also include geography as science because there is some correlation between earth’s composition, and its temperature variations across latitudes, and the effect of gravity and the solar system on climate and life. Generally most students do not tend to like, or prefer, science subjects as these require students to concentrate, understand, and look for answers, using the knowledge at their disposal. But because science is such an insidious subject, people should learn at least the basics till they reach a stage where it starts making sense to them and they can decide whether they want to pursue the subjects further. All countries try to orient students towards such subjects, and the various projects, research and experiments that go hand in hand with such areas, as they need a workforce that can implement their infrastructure projects, and look after their industries, nature, health and defense.

Pros
? The subjects pave the way for high paying jobs such as those in the medical and engineering fields. ? These subjects help students to comprehend the problems in their homes and surroundings, and do small jobs without the need for professionals who would charge them much higher for it. ? Even if the science student does not go for higher studies, the basics can help him or her in various fields and areas during life. ? Most of the time the outcomes of any science sequence are known and what is not known can be researched upon.

Cons
? These subjects are certainly not easy and require good teachers who can teach the subject well, as well as a student who is willing to research and study. ? Higher studies in these subjects are expensive.

A lot more interesting

Someone said that languages were the more interesting subject but I disagree. Science subjects are a lot more interesting if you like them of course. I had to learn French and Science subjects whilst I was in school and I know that most people preferred the Science subjects. Doing experiments and watching videos is a lot more interesting than having to learn all the verbs and techniques for speaking French.

Science!

Ever since I started studying, I was drawn towards science. I liked to know how the world worked. I liked to know how the universe worked. I was awed by the stars and planets and dinosaurs. They were all so very interesting.

Then there's all those experiments that science subjects is famous for and it makes it a real winner. Experiments take science subjects to a whole new level of excitement and learning that language subjects could never match.

I do believe that language subjects are very helpful and extremely practical and could be used in everyday life. But science is just something else.

Science Subjects

As a kid, I excelled in science and was usually the top of my class up until about 11th grade where I kind of lost interest for some reason. Now I find things like computers much more enticing and alluring to me. I was always great at mechanical things like putting stuff together and taking them apart to find out how they work. I enjoy things that have a specific logic to it like programming which is mostly what I spend my days now doing. I have a low affinity for languages probably because I'm relatively or was relatively antisocial so I never really needed languages and I just have the hardest time learning new languages. Despite my language learning handicap, I speak three languages as it stands now two of which aren't my mother tongue so I guess that's good enough.

I like science better.

Possibly, I could get better at languages if I really tried, but I don't see the point, as it's unlikely I'd ever visit a nation where it would be useful. Also, I am incredibly interested in science, so given my limited time, I'd be more likely to choose science. However, though, I do find languages massively interesting and if I had more time, then I might devote more study to them.

The way of the future.

Personally, I'm a man who has always had more success in language studies than any scientific subject. As much as I love reading scientific articles and watching documentaries, I was absolutely awful when it came to any science subject including biology, physics, and chemistry. That being said, I still feel that science is far more important than any language studies. This is because scientific research and breakthroughs in technology are what is going to propel our society into the future. Without science, we are going to simply stagnate, so we are constantly in need of new generations of scientists.

I like Science

I love to spend time learning things in science. And I have noticed that social science and languages are boring. So science keeps me hoping and occupied. So on that point, you can see that it'd be reasonable to have a good discussion on the science point. I'd surely go for that part.

Science subjects

Science subjects seem more interesting for me than the languages, it can offer us more knowledge and some subjects may be fun to try. Science is one of the most interesting things from the world, language is too boring for me.

There's even science in learning a new language!

Science is everywhere, even in the words we speak be it our native tongue or foreign languages. There is also a science of languages in learning how to speak a foreign language and learning the culture and understanding the origin and meaning of it all. Science creates mysteries and reveals mysterious creations. Science competes against itself with the unanimous victory going ultimately to the science of our very existence!

Greater Versatility

This is a somewhat difficult choice for me - as apart from enjoying both - so much so that I have degrees in both - they've also been very beneficial to me in very many ways.

However - as science subjects were always something that interested me greatly from a very early age and it was these that enabled me to follow my chosen career path and also allowed me to diversify somewhat too - my choice in this instance has to be science subjects.

Especially as - unlike languages on their own - they generally lead to a much wider choice of fields in which you can work.

Sciences Rule

I am a hypocrite and betraying my own ilk, as an English professor, but, I must say, I think that the study of the sciences is much more important to learning additional languages. Science comes with a very specialized language and vocabulary of its own. I am not saying that one should not be incredibly proficient in their own language, and, if they are not, they can't even discuss scientific ideas effectively; however, I am saying that the concepts and critical thinking that studying the sciences provides is invaluable. Yes, I am a closet science nerd. I admit. Don't tell my English professor friends.

Science

I always like science subject more than language. It is easier for me and more interesting. Doing experiment that can answer our weird questions is one of the thing i like in science subject. I remember having good grades in sciense subject. Those unimaginable answer that you will learn is really amazing. Until now i love watching documentaries concerning science.

I love science!

Since elementary, my favorite subject is Science. I always get excited learning new things and how things are created. I'm not saying that the other subjects are boring but for me, Science is the best of them all.

God of Subjects

Science is my favorite subject next to Lunch. Science is the god of subjects because these subjects would never exist without science on the first place, right? If only I had a genius mind I could have been a great scientist now but I guess I am too lazy to be one. Science always keeps me wondering how everything in this world started.

Science rocks

During my schooling days, I used to love science subjects a lot and I was very good at it. Even before I got to the level in my college to pick between doing science or arts subjects, my teachers are always insighting me to choose science as they believe that I can do very well in it.

I can remember winning the best student in Integrated Science subject in one of our school inter-house sports. I was also give a money gift price of three hundred Naira (#300). That was a very huge amount of money compared to my age back then.

As much as I was good with science subjects, I had one I totally had issues and difficulty in doing well, it was mathematics. I tried my possible best to overcome my maths problem, it really gave me a lot of worries but I was glad I managed to scale through during my examination.

Languages

Languages
Students opting to study languages are common as many have a love for foreign languages apart from their mother tongue. Learning a language is a way to broaden one's mind, epxressive knowledge as well as to learn about other cultures and improve one's communication skills. It is an exciting world as one can look for jobs like those of translators, interpreters, media persons, marketers, journalists, public relations officers, receptionists, and even writers. Those who succeed see very high pay scales. One can safelyh say that languages play a crucial role in various asepcts. Languages help to communicate well with others, as well as at work, offices, and in social systems. And in a more globalized world, being conversant with foreign languages is highly advantageous.

Pros
? There are different types of jobs available for people equipped with language skills; ? Education in this field is not very expensive, and there are many types of jobs so specialization is also easier; ? It is generally somewhat easier to learn a language than science subjects although this can be disputed. ? Speaking and listening to the language can help one improve a great deal over a period of time.

Cons
? Pay scales may be a bit lower since there is a lot of competition in the jobs with such skills.

easier for me

I would choose languages just because it's easier for me. I have studied Spanish and Arabic and greatly enjoyed learning both. I love learning about other cultures, their customs, and their languages. I think it would definitely be challenging, but it would still be easier for me than trying to learn complex matters in science and math. I have a very difficult time understanding these concepts, theorems, and theories. I'm too concrete. I learn subjects better when they are tactile.

More interesting

Considering I have a degree in languages it's obvious that I'll pick this option over the science subjects. I didn't do badly at them but I didn't find them as interesting as learning new languages.

I can already speak quite a few and we began learning our second language when we were around 6 years old. So, as soon as we started school we began not only learning our mother language but other foreign ones as well.

Languages are extremely important for any culture and society itself. They express so many things and can have hidden meanings, emotions and messages. Every single language is very complex and requires deep studying to fully understand.

Languages!

To be honest, I did pretty well in Science compared to my High School class. However, the last thing I'd want to do is go back to that period. Science can be fun, but very confusing. Especially when you get into Physics and different formulas. Personally, I'm always enthused to learn another language! It's like diving into a whole other type of culture and dialect. Because of that, this was an easy choice for me!

Travel, work, live

Science is useful but I'm not very good at it, and I prefer to let the scientists and the smartier people study it. For me, languages is the choice! I'd love to know a lot of languages! They can help you in a lot of different ways: you can find a job more easily, you can make friends in any part of the world, you can travel without worrying about the language! Languages absolutely.

Learn languages easily

I ote for languages. I am lousy at Science subjects that I failed all three of them; Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

I had been schooling in a local government school since young. I learned to read, write and listen English, Malay and Chinese, all three languages for different subjects. Chinese is the hardest because there are different strokes, each stroke has different meaning.

I am keen to learn Korean language, which is similar to Chinese. Learning different languages help me to socialize with different people of different skin color. Fun !

Personally, I always had an easier time with languages. Maybe because grammatical rules are way more logic than mathematics or physics. Still some languages can be just as hard

More use in life

I took physics and chemistry in school and have never needed them in my life. Meanwhile, there have been so many times where I found myself wishing I spoke Spanish, Mandarin, or another language. I feel that learning languages helps bridge together cultures and is essential.

Talk That Talk

Although I find science an extremely interesting subject (although it's very complicated sometimes, haha!), I prefer language because I identify myself better and faster with the idea of ??knowing new cultures through words.

Words are the most powerful weapon in the world!

Languages

It was my favorite thing when I was in high school. I never had issues with the English class and I was very good with it finishing every year with good grades. The science subjects aren't my forte and I had some issues with them during my years with school. Luckily, at college I didn't have to deal with them.

Different kind of science

Learning a new language is not easy. It may be easy for some people in different ways. You may learn a new language by listening but I may learn it by the writing. Of course, when I say this is a different kind of science is because you can find some formulas and tips and tricks on how to remember words, expressions, and learn the spelling rules and orthographic rules of that new language. And the phonetics of the language is another system that is necessary to learn and take as a science.

I find language more interesting

I have never been that fascinated by science experiments even though I have always felt that I should be. I always felt guilty that I wasn't feeling awestruck by what science type thing is happening in front of me, nor have I really been interested in looking at space or the stars. I don't know why and like I said, I wish I was more fascinated by it so I could feel a bit more normal, but I can't help but feel a lot more interested when I am learning about words rather than facts of science. I am interested in some aspects of science, though, but I am just overall more interested in language.

Though science subject will pay well for people that are very good at it, but it is not possible for everyone to be good in science subjects since we all have different learning ability. The best thing is to study the subject you know that you are good at, as that will help you much better in life.

I prefer science subject rather than language. For me it is more interesting and not boring subject especially when you have experiment and you will do it in science laboratory it’s a kind of excitement for me to learn new things. I like science because it searches for the TRUTH. I like knowing how things work. Science uses evidence based facts to create models to explain the world around us. I like science because it is 'live' and gives 'life' to millions of things that exists in and around the world. Science has always inspired us for development and survival based on provable facts for all time.

I am torn between the 2 choices. But if I have a grade school child, I would probably prefer science over language because language is easier to learn especially when there is someone whom you can converse with. Take for example English, there are lots of children here who can speak good English because they are taught spoken English at home. But you cannot do that with science for you only learn science in school.

Well both has its own perks. Learning a particular language can give you advantages when dealing with foreigners and people who are conversing using that specific language. But I think learning science subjects are much beneficial not only to you but to other people as well. Research and studies on any particular field will help its communities progress and development.

I've always been bad in Science so I would pick Languages. I believe Science is one the most difficult subject of all. I never hated Science, but I never like it. Learning language is much easier to handle and would not destroy your brain cell and give you so much stress and headaches. I know Science is enjoyable because you get to do experiments, however, this doesn't erase the fact that it's quite a difficult subject, so language all the way.

I would pick language over science because it is beneficial on my part that I can find a lot of part time job because of language. While science is also essential to people to identify and resolve issue that need scientific explanations. However both premise is important to us that we can use it in our daily living.

I think learning many different languages is a good thing if you plan to travel the world. It is nice to be able to speak their language especially when dealing with customs. I can speak English and French but never learned any other language. I don't travel to many places where these two languages aren't used. My daughter speaks a third language. She speaks Spanish and has used it often on her travels.

I studied science in my highschool, however, when I left highschool, I switched my subject to management. After I completed MBA, I went to study creative writing. When I was in high school, I was good in science. I was very good in Chemistry. I always scored A+. I was also good with Physics. I was average in Biology, however, I was more interested in Biology. Therefore, Biology was my major subject in high school.

I like both subjects and am pretty good at both subjects, but I would say languages are more my preference and I have a slight edge in this field. This is something that I have always wanted to master and I would not say they come easily to me, but they are not difficult for me. I think science can be difficult if it is advanced science. Many people have issues with various sciences on the advanced level.

Science never seems to stop. Language is there to live as well. I believe everyone should be at least bilingual if not more than that. If you study science at school or university level then chances for getting a job are much higher than learning a language. yes, of course, Mandaring, Spanish and Arabic are a great advantage to a CV for an English speaker but science makes you perfect in that subject at which you major in.

When I was in grade and high school, science is my favorite subject. I love exploring the earth, solar system, the universe, and life forms. It is really amazing. I love also working with the laboratory experiments. However, I did not pursue a college degree that is related to science. Although I finish a BS course, it is not really a course that deals with pure science or natural science. Later in my life, I just realized that studying language is also great. Leaning the origin and the composition of language able you to speak and understand other people.

I used to excel at science subjects more than at language subjects. I am very sound mathematically and love subjects that involve calculations. I find it so easy assimilating science subjects both at the middle school and high school levels. When I got to high school classes, I started offering science subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and so on, though these were very lucrative subjects. When it comes to language subjects, I only used to manage with average scores or sometimes above average, but used to excel at science subjects and even lead in my class.
