    Chemistry is a science subject that poses difficulties and challenges to many learners. Research questions of numerous studies address the manner in which to make pupils and students familiar with the chemistry content to be learned, so that they would understand it better and learn it with greater interest. The research results confirm that a way of teaching plays a significant role thereto. At the beginning of the academic years 2014/15 and 2015/16 the research was conducted at the Faculty of Education, in which 126 students participated, with a view to obtaining the opinions of the first-year students on their high school chemistry. The questionnaire was divided into three parts. The research results show that the respondents are aware of the connection of chemistry with everyday life, that well explained results of lab work facilitate the understanding of the chemistry content to be learned, and that they find the redox reactions to be the least interesting chemistry learning content. The research findings are extremely important for chemistry teachers in secondary school as well as in elementary school, as they dictate the motifs of learners and the activities which encourage them to study and conduct research.
