  1. 1) I think telling the teacher was the best option because the teacher could set up a person for Abdul’s mum to try and teach her English or follow her around and translate what Abdul’s Mum says.

    2)I think she felt this way because she was frustrated because no one could understand her so thats why she took Abdul everywhere with her. I think Abdul was Upset or maybe quite mad or angry because he had just made new friends and now he couldn’t go and play with them.

    3)I think she wanted to take him everywhere because someone might ask her something or she might need Abdul to translate if she wanted some help or wanted to ask a question.

    4)I think he found Moving schools hardest because no one wanted to be his friend and he didn’t understand anything they said and when he learned the language it didn’t make any difference.
