Quoting duda:

In my country we just couldn't finish grammar school without reading ALL classics and the most of contemporary writers... starting from "Iliad" and "Odyssey" and finishing with the last winner of Nobel prize... .



Of course I had to read classical literature for secondary school, but Dutch ones. And Nobel prize winners were not compulsory, they had other measurements: I had to read books from the middle ages, Renaissance, era of Voltaire (don't know the English word), between 1850 - 1940 and after 1940. But all Dutch writers. And Iliad or Odyssey was only when you had Greek lessons, which I didn't.

The books I read then are absolutely not my favourites, I hated reading them!

I was in mathematic school, but we had to read Iliad and Odyssey... as Slavica said, it was not only for a mark; it was a matter of honour... obviously there is big difference in our cultures and education systems. For we enjoyed reading clssics.

We had Dutch ones in Dutch classes, but also some classical Greek stuff for example.
And we had (classical) French literature in French classes, and English ones in English classes..
It's strange that your school system stressed so much on "just Dutch".

ps: I never had latin or greek either.

Or it's the differences between students... which I conclude from Elisa's post. Thanks, Elisa! I didn't know you are from Netherlands, so I draw away my words. My opinion about Duch students doesn't refer to you. We had bad students who hated clasics too...

In French classes we had to read French literature yes, I never finished Francoise Sagan.... In English we had to read English literature - wow, what a nice video's there were of all those books . In German I never had to read books because as soon as possible I skipped that, so the literature exams where not for me.

Do understand me correct, I love reading but when the word 'compulsory' comes, I refuse.

A student who hates to read compulsory books is a bad student? What a prejudice!

You're right, it's a matter of taste. And "les goûts et les couleurs..."

My favourite literature has always been Anglo/American. I read and like other books as well of course, but I always return to the English stuff..

Very simple formula: if you don't read, you can't get good mark. If you don't have good marks, you can't join the University. If you don't join the University, you can't become a teacher.

Pride or prejudice, that is the question... lol
