My favorite subject is the one that I can study for hours without getting bored. It is the subject that I look forward to studying in my class as well as at home. It has not been the same all through the years I have been studying. It has changed from time to time. Everyone has different interest and their favorite subject varies based on the same. While mathematics is the favorite subject of some students others find it too difficult and despise it.

Long and Short Essay on My Favourite Subject

Essay 1 (250 words)


Ever since I was a pre-primary student, I loved drawing. I just loved drawing different things and coloring them. I always looked forward to the drawing class at school. It was my favorite part of the day. I also indulged in drawing as I came back from school. My parents bought me different types of colors including pencil colors, crayons, and watercolors.

My Love for Drawing

It was actually my mother who encouraged me to draw and color. She tried to do so to distract me from watching television as she indulged in household tasks. However, drawing eventually became my favorite subject. I tried to draw different sceneries and other stuff and colored them diligently. My mother soon enrolled me in drawing classes to hone my skills. I learned to draw a lot of new things in my drawing class. My drawing teacher also taught me different coloring techniques. It was quite fun. I went to drawing classes for almost two years regularly. Even now that I am in V standard, I still join art and craft classes during my vacations. I have also learned sketching and glass painting.

Environmental Studies – Another Favourite Subject

As I was promoted to standard I, few new subjects were introduced and the environmental study was one of them. Apart from drawing, I also love environmental studies. This is because it gives knowledge about so many things happening around us. We learn about plants, animals, air, water and so much more by way of this subject. The facts learned in this subject can be applied in real life and that is what I like the most about it. We also require drawing diagrams in this subject and this is also one of the reasons it is one of my favorite subjects.


While drawing is my favorite subject, environmental studies comes a close second. Both the subjects are close to my heart and I can never get bored practicing any of these.

Essay 2 (400 words)


I am quite picky about a lot of things in life including friends, food, and activities. Most people around me find my choices quite different and unique. My choice when it comes to subjects is also quite different. The subject that most students find boring seems quite interesting to me. I just love History. It is my favorite subject.

History – The Most Interesting Subject

People often laugh at me and question me about my choice when I tell them that History is my favorite subject. I, however, wonder why students don’t like such an interesting subject. History takes us to different eras and places and we learn so much from it. It is almost like a time-traveling for me. It associates us with our roots and gives more meaning to our life. I find it all very fascinating.

I love reading about the different kings and queens and how they managed the common people. Many of the kings in the history of India have been harsh on the commoners while there have also been some who have been very kind to them. They helped raise the standard of living of the people living under them. Besides, the chapters included in the syllabus I try to look for books on different events that took place in history to learn and explore more about the same.

I have read in-depth about how the British invaded our country and the way they began ruling it. These real-life stories are far more intriguing than any of the works of fiction.

Another topic that I find interesting in this subject is the position of women in different eras and various dynasties. Women had to face a lot of injustice in the past. They were mostly confined to household tasks and were not allowed to work outside. Their whole and sole duty were to serve their family by carrying out household chores. They did not have the right to question or go against the will of the man of the house. Another disturbing fact was that the kings were allowed to marry as many times as they wanted and be in a relationship with all their wives simultaneously while queens were expected to be true to their husbands. It shows that we have come a long way since that time when it comes to gender equality.


I have always been fascinated by historical facts and monuments. Not just Indian history, I love reading about the history of various countries.

Our interests keep changing from time to time. Be it our favorite color, favorite food item, favorite person or favorite game – everything changes as we grow up and favorite subject is no exception. Many students love certain subjects in their primary classes but completely despise those subjects as they begin to get tougher year after year. My experience has been quite similar. I have also had a shift in interest and my favorite subject has changed with time.

Mathematics – My Favourite Subject

I have been a big fan of mathematics right from the time numbers were introduced to us in the nursery. While my teacher had taught numbers up to 10, I learned to count up to 50 with the help of my mother. I was so curious and keen on learning this subject that I soon began learning addition. My mother introduced fun ways of learning in addition to the use of different things such as spoons, oranges, soft toys. I also learned subtraction using such innovative methods.

Looking at my interest in the subject, my mother soon made me join the abacus class. I also accompanied her to the toy shop to get an abacus for myself. I simply loved doing calculations using this ancient method of learning maths. Joining abacus helped me enhance my knowledge about the subject. It laid a strong base for me and I performed extremely well in the subject. I scored high in maths. Most of the time, I got full marks on it.

I practiced the problem sums quite often. Whenever I was asked to study, I opened my mathematics book and began solving the sums. I cleared the maths Olympiad with a good score. I was also sent for quite a few inter-school maths competitions. Many of my classmates came to me to seek help in the subject. Many still come to me to learn different topics. I help them with the subject whenever they need any kind of assistance.

My Love for French

While I am still good at mathematics and my name is recommended for various mathematics competitions, I personally have grown fond of French ever since I have entered the sixth standard. We had the option of choosing between Sanskrit and French as a third subject in grade sixth and I decided to go for French. While my parents insisted that I should take up Sanskrit as my mother is well versed with the subject and could help me with it, I convinced them otherwise. Though, they did not like the idea initially however they realized I took the right decision after I started scoring high in the subject. I was always keen on learning a foreign language. It was something new and fresh and thus I was interested in it.

My interest in the subject keeps me glued to it. Besides, since I took it up against the wish of my parents, I learn it with all the more zeal to prove to them that my decision was right. My French teacher is quite helpful and supportive. Her method of teaching is quite innovative. She makes us understand this new language with ease. She has made learning so much fun and interesting. I always look forward to the French class. I and my friends also try to use the sentences we have learned as we converse with each other. I have also started following French artists and listening to French songs.


French has certainly become my favorite subject and mathematics is my second favorite subject now. I am planning to leave Hindi and take up French when the option to choose between the two is given in the ninth standard. I might even take it up as the main subject during graduation.
