I teach English in a secondary school in Hungary. The other day I asked my 9th-grader (about 15-year-old) students what new subjects they would like to have at school. In their homework they came up with the following ideas: - Cooking - Housekeeping - First Aid - Self-Defence - Learning-how-to-learn - Communication - Building - Car-driving - Horse-riding - Practical Money Skills / Financial Matters - Civic Knowledge / Legal Matters - Programming - Searching-the-Internet - Animation - Listening-to-music Because they had quite a lot to say about what they like/dislike about school, how they would change their timetable, etc., I thought it'd be nice to help them find an online forum where we could go on discussing it in English outside the classroom and, hopefully, with other people, too. Do you think we could try here? If no, then this thread will obviously be deleted soon. If yes, please join us, especially if you are secondary school students, too. So, what do you think? Which of the above subjects would be the most useful and why? Do you have such subjects in your school (in other parts of the world perhaps)? What's the ideal timetable like in your opinion?
