Most asians aren't good with English. Even if they are born here. Unless there parents are born here then maybe yes.

Plus what is in the Canadian curriculum that makes English so tough? In the US, English is a joke... granted so is our public-school system. We just had to read popular, classical novels, and write short book reports. Don't remember much grammar, vocabulary, spelling, etc in high school. I also took AP Literature where I had to "interpret" and "analyze" the author's intended meanings in stories and poetry. That was awful. But you can't get lower than a 90 in English with average effort.
yeah.....

i'm in 11th grade and i'm doing interpretations :P actually, i'll be writting one on tuesday. Kristijonas Donelaitis "Metai" you're lithuanian, so you can try to read a few parts from the book on the internet. i promise you, you won't understand a thing.

and to the asian kid - don't be such a cry baby. i'm good at english and history, you're good at math and blablabla. just don't bitch about it and try to study harder. i'm really bad with numbers, but that doesn't mean i go on forums complaining (and by bad, i mean i'm the worst in my class and i barely have a positive grade - 3.5=4/10).

sooo yeah...stop making stupid threads like this, because they piss off EVERYBODY.

peace.

Dude I can barely read news articles from lrytas.lt. During the World Championship I was all over that site watching the player interview videos and trying to read the articles... barely understood any of the literature.

I only lived in Lithuania for five years. Started school in the US. So yea, def wouldn't understand anything from "Metai."

As for the bigger picture, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses academically. Just like athletes in their respective sports. It is what it is. Even geniuses are frequently incredibly knowledgeable in one field, and dumb as rocks in another. Doesn't have to be an academic setting. Could be social skills or something else.

Personally I consider myself rather intelligent but I've always performed poorly on standardized tests. Very unfortunate considering I plan on attending business school in Fall of 2011 and am currently preparing for the GMAT. Need to get that MBA though.

68 is 68.

Teachers don't give a shit about you, it isn't personal, trust me. Try harder.
