do you have or did you have history lessons in school and which topics did you have or do you have to study?

typical same like americans and UK, learning their "version" of history and learning just their own geography and historly LMFAO

yeah, a big waste of time, since we have so many good in the history to study..
2019-03-15 13:24
I had a chance to meet quite a few people of different nationalities in my life, some of whom I also dated. it is funny to see how they have all been "taught" their version of history. UK people literally think they ended second world war by themselves, americans think they did it, Russians think they did it and all of those nations, of course, think they are superior to others :D But I kinda see this effect here a bit as well. We learned pretty much everything about the first and second world war, about Napoleon, other conflicts etc, wars all over the globe, but no professor ever EVER touched the subject of Yugoslavian wars. I guess not enough time has passed already or we are just to close to the actual happenings, a lot of people here are from Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian etc families, so I guess history teachers don't really want to take a side and say who was in the wrong and who was in the right. I would probably get a better education on Yugoslavian war studying it in USA or UK, rather than here. Quite sad actually, to know everything about everything just not your "own", because people are scared to take sides.

We arent even taught that empire and colonialism is bad

Yeah, in your case, you might be right about the teachers don't wanting to take a side in past events, but imo i think it's essencial to young people get knowledge about their own history, and they had to find a way to explain what happened in the past, without a way who says like: Slovenia was right, or Croatia was right, etc.. knowledge its important in so much things, and our own history, for some people, its kinda interesting. About you get a better education in your own history, i think either studying in USA (they're too much patriotic) or UK you won't find a good education about it, sadly, only on internet you will got it.
2019-03-15 13:39
Depends on the teacher. Even in Spain they teach us american colonization was executed the most inhuman way possible, and dont hide. Maybe of you have a more patriotic teacher he will be biased.

but thats a long time ago, that teacher might have seen the balkan war with his own eyes.
2019-03-15 14:44
i guess that makes sense, if u lived something u are gonna take a side in it... thats why you shouldnt rly base your whole knowledge on one source. Its good to both listen ur teacher and also inform urself about ur interests. anyways i always hated history i barely managed to pass it my last year by praying my spain history teacher to let me pass with a 5
2019-03-15 15:23
i feel like finland have pretty good history studies. just a little biased about war against russia
2019-03-15 13:46
Probably, because you aren't like a huge huuge country and yes, that would be only "topic" where I could see the explanation being biased a bit
2019-03-15 13:58
same goes for germany tho were just learning stuff about our own country i have to learn alot about russian history in school and a bit about france the uk and american history but thats it
2019-03-15 13:27
It happens to all "bigger" nations I think :)

That really isn’t true though. We take an equal amount of years of world history and US history.
2019-03-15 13:31
It doesn't show, so I don't know what program you follow, what topics you go over, but... In general, your end knowledge is rather poor. I guess it depends on school as well

I think people are either uninterested in history and don’t retain much of it, or it is taught poorly and not reinforced. I am still in school and I am learning about the industrial revolution’s affect on imperialism in specific countries such as Britain, Germany, Russia, and Japan right now.
2019-03-15 13:34
almost everybody i know is 99.9% uninterested in history they are just trying to be interested so they can get good grades in school rly sad
2019-03-15 13:46
i have few friends that are very interested just like me
2019-03-15 13:47
MAN imagine wanting to study a science degree about some biology or physics shit. Why the fuck would you like to study history????? History is about past events, and many people prefer to study about the future. I would make the history subject optional after 8th year

Yea. Most of the people I know aren’t really that interested in history and lose their knowledge of what happened after the class finishes.
2019-03-15 14:25
There are numerous world histroy and world geography classes to be taken in my area
2019-03-15 15:48
is brazilian history a huge topic?
2019-03-15 13:18
Brazil VeryColdGuy 
i didn't think interesting, because i really don't care too much about Brazil, since for me its a lost country, but have people who love it.
2019-03-15 13:24
Brazil RmM_oo 
Yes it is, half a century of internal revolutions, immigrations, some minor wars, politics, monarchy, dictators, republic and democracy... Not so vast as EU history but a large topic nonetheless.
2019-03-15 13:38
yea i just googled it its kinda huge :D
2019-03-15 13:41
French history, German world war
2019-03-15 13:18

Georgia Broozman 
Israel is really cool, it's story, creation after WW2, really love that.
2019-03-15 14:40
maybe you should learn how you tried to conquer the world and enslaved half of it but uh no britain is sooooo pure better learn about evil germany and how you defeated the nazis in war you helped starting god i hate this world
2019-03-15 15:27
He did the British empire, collonialism and the slave trade quite extensively. I just named my gcse topics which are what I took exams in
2019-03-15 15:43
Also none of those topics that I named involved defeating Germany. The interwar period section tonight about the period between ww1 and ww2, basically covered what caused ww2. As I remember it didn’t paint Britain in a particularly good light.
2019-03-15 15:46
Georgia Broozman 
Very boring Georgian history, and now we have started Crusades.
2019-03-15 13:27
Hungarian history is pronably the most boring thing in the world. World history is cool tho, I just wish our teacher wasn't a dumb racist fuck. I don't understand how can someone this educated be this dumb and brainwashed
2019-03-15 13:27

Korea XigNw0w 
At least we have had an introduction to Korean history, contemporary history of Korea, theory and practice of historical writing, history of Chinese modern society, a modern history of Korea and we have talked about Japanese a bit, but haven't studied it yet. There is a lot of other things in our history classes regarding mostly Korea, China and Japan. Obviously, we have talked also about Mongol's invasion etc.
2019-03-15 15:59
we started from cave people then Kyiv Rus Ukraine Ruin ukraine at ww1/golodomor/ww2 our time world history cave people and life at all continents at different time
2019-03-15 16:04
This is what we had in Hungary: Started with prehistoric people. When they lived, where they lived, what they did, what their sosciety looked like. Then moved on to ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, China and India. This was much like about inventions and basic history. Then came ancient Rome and Greece. Rulers, wars, art, philosophy, gods, culture, etc. After this we learned about the middle ages, feudalism and early modern times. Especially about Hungary's history of course, but also about England. We had a chapter about the French evolution as well. We learned about geographical discoveries, too. After these, we pretty much focused on Hungary (as far as I remember). We went through revolutions, world wars and time of communism in the country. All these throughout the 6 years of high school (hs is normally 4 years long, but I went to a 6 year one, but I won't explain ot now). We had history in primary school too (5th-6th class).
