    I actually loved history at school. My favourite time was when we did a big study on the Weimar Republic, and interwar Germany in general, up until the rise of Hitler.

    We never did any work in history class, my teacher just sat and chatted with us about the topics and I learned more from that class than any other.

      I had a primary school teacher like that. He was in love with French culture and his enthusiasm for the topic was so infectious that I learned more in a single day with him, than I did in any of the years of textbook French lessons I took in high school.

      I hated it but my teacher just had us read a book quietly and then tested us on it. Almost no interaction at all other than occasionally making us take turns reading it out loud which also just kinda sucks
