历史有很多要背的东西。(Lìshǐ yǒu hěnduō yào bèi de dōngxī.)"There are a lot to memorize when you are taking history."

物理很有趣,我觉得。(Wùlǐ hěn yǒu qù, wǒ juédé.)"Physics is very interesting, I think."
Next one is 生物学 (shēngwù xué) or 生物(shēngwù), which means ”biology"
When I see this word, the first thing that came to my mind is frogs.
