  7. 1.) The people in England did not believe him and they said that hey was ” exaggerating ” but really he was not . They have not been to Hungary to say that Sigi was lying so in reality they have not been there or felt what is was like so they can not accuse Sigi about lying. This chapter is nice as Sigi meets his sister after 8 years of sorrow. Sigi has also gotten a new piece of family as Sigi’s sister has married Sigi now has a brother in law. And now Sigi’s family and Lacy’s family ( lacy is Sigi’s brother in law) are now connected.

    2.) Soon after arriving in London Sigi got work at a mirror factory. Where he had earned a total of two shillings and 8 pence every hour ( 32 pennies in total.). Sigi said it was very good wage for one person at the time. Just after two weeks he had enough money to buy a second – hand bicycle. Unfortunately, Sigi’s colleagues complained to the manager about his work ; so the manager assigned him to a non skill job and lowered his wage. After that unfortunate event it took Sigi two years to find a good paying job. Which he had to polish glass window ledges.

    3.) I know what the word introverted means as a watch many animators on YouTube and the are all introverts it means a shy person that stays indoors most of the time these people suffer from anxiety and social problems so they do not have much friends. But a good thing is that they can learn more about communicating and social life as they have not done it before. This is an opportunity for them to learn more about and then they can come on to be more comfortable being around other people and even making new friends and talking to people.

    4.) After a year of the polishing job Sigi had just enough money to go to the foreman and learn self confidence and do a speech to a lot of people show how big his self confidence has grown. he did this for the benefit of him as he is and introvert so this was a great opportunity for him. At the end Professor Wing mainly taught him self confidence . And at the end he did the lecture in front of hundreds of people successfully. He had all of the traits Professor Wing revealed they were just hiding temporarily. After two weeks he felt like a new man and went to go live on with his family.

    • Super effort Callum. Make sure that you answer using full sentences. Also make sure that you use capitals at the beginning of your sentences. Try to use ‘going to’ instead of ‘gonna’, it is more formal.😊 Looking forward to seeing your finished work.

    • Rehan please read my reply on your previous comment and let us know if have found it. If it’s not there please answer second text (Alien street)questions.

    The work introverted means shy or not confident.
    Sigi spent her wages on a hand bike.
    The speeches cost her two weeks of the wages.

    • This is very similar to Armaan’s response Aaron. You need to use P.E.E. to help you explain the answer to the question, giving evidence from the text to support your answer. For example, ‘The people didn’t believe Sigi because….. I know this because in the text it says, “……………” This shows that Sigi wasn’t being believed by other people.’
      Have another go at structuring your responses.

  20. People didn’t believe Sigi because they didn’t know about his turmoil.
    After Sigi came to England, he worked in a mirror factory 🏭 to earn money.
    Introverted means when someone is quiet, and they keep to themselves. People who are introverted prefer to not socialise and they stay away from others.
    When he got them, Sigi spent his wages on a second hand bike (somebody else had it before them).
    The speech course for Sigi cost two weeks of his wages.

      For example, how do you know people did not acknowledge his turmoil.
