  1. this activity as difficult and a little boring

  2. OK Ale, I see you don't like learning about literature very much... well, it doesn't matter... you did it anyway!!! I hope you learned something about Dickens!.
    Thanks for your comment!

  3. yes I learned some things but I don't like one part.If I remember correctly he started working when he was 12 years old.He was very young.Was it normal at that time?
    he should be in school.

  4. Hi Ale. Yes it was not strange at that time. Children worked in factories in very bad conditions, like Dickens had to. You are lucky today in Spain, you can't work so young, but in many countries they still do it!!!
