1 Think about Maths and say if it is your favourite subject.
2 Listen and read about
Adam’s favourite subject
And say what the best mark
In English school is.
Everybody says I’m crazy, but I love Maths.
I like numbers, especially even numbers.
My favourite numbers are 6 and 22.
I don’t like odd numbers very much:
1, 3, 5, 7, 9 …A hundred is a nice number, and a thousand… In some countries number five is very popular. It is the best mark at school. In the UK we’ve got letters. ‘A’ is the best mark. Not many students have got an ‘A’ in Maths in our class, only three. Other students call us swots. Girls shout ‘Sweaty-swotty!’. It sometimes hurts.

1 What is Adam’s favourite subject?
2 What are Adam’s favourite numbers?
3 What number is popular in some countries?
4 In which country do students get ‘А’, ‘В’, ‘С’, ‘D’, ‘E’ at school?
