As an engineer, I have to be good with numbers. We use them a lot in your profession. When we design or build construct something, when we made a research or material calculation. Math is an important tool in the engineer's hands. Of course, we don't need to do all this stuff like our precursors used to do - manually. We have computers but you still need to be confident with numbers ..... and computers as well.
So, I know it's hard to master Math and numbers but that's the way the mop flops. Don't give up folks - Math is great!

when it comes to English, I think I'm bad at number. but, if in Bahasa, I think I can do it better.

I think so, I am not human calculator but I manage well.

I'm good at numbers and I like them very much. I wish I was a mathematics teacher. I feel great when I'm dealing with numbers and happy when I'm teaching something to someone.

I like math so much, it makes me alert,concentrated, math and number is the backbone of the science,
I canit imagine life without number.
The money, banks,salary, markets,goods, are in touch to a number.

Previously, before I start learn with you it was hard for me, but now I'm better with your efforts, thank you very much British council.

I think i don't like the numbers
