Extracts from this document...


Autobiography I was born in St. Mary's hospital and since then have lived in London all my life. My family name is, Elobied and my first name is Mohammed, the name Mohammed has a self-explanatory meaning, it simply means son of the prophet Mohammed who is very in important in our religion, Islam. My father was born in Sudan (Bara) and lived there for a while, then Immigrated to London when he was 23 to 24 years of age; he later returned to Sudan and married my mother. My mother is Sudanese and was brought up in Sudan. My Mother used to spend her holidays in Saudi Arabia where she visited my Uncle and cousins. My Mother was brought up with a thick Sudanese accent that I was raised up with, to the English this accent was strange and hard to understand, sometimes I was even laughed at because I caught on the Sudanese accent from my mother. When my brother and I were little, my mother and farther would take us to Sudan in the summer holidays to visit my relatives specifically my grandmother and grandfather. ...read more.


out that talking back to my teacher wasn't such a good idea as I was sent to my headmaster's office every time I did. As I had mentioned before I was introduced to reading at an early age. I had an instant love of reading and my favourite place when I was not in school was the library I would have my mum take me to the library nearly every day and borrow books I was their best customer the librarian had said. My favourite books to read had to be Harry potter.

Then in year eight I gave up French and chose my mother tongue language Arabic after a few years I had forgotten French and stuck with Arabic partly because I wanted to get a certificate for it. I still take an interest to different languages ti this day I have learnt quite a bit of Bengali as I have befriended them. Comedy I had always liked to make people laugh and was told I was quite good at it; I would often put on different accents and tell Jokes. My favourite genre of films were comedy, and my favourite film had to be King Of Comedy I like it because, of the use of the language and how they manipulate it to make people laugh. These Artists- Eddie Izzard, Rik Mayall and the Monty python- largely influenced me. I think people over the next thirty years should make an effort in learning foreign languages. People today are ignorant, if they go abroad they expect the local residents to make an effort of talking their language or they would buy a book that translates for them. In the future I would like to try and become fluent in every language I can. Language is a precious gift, and we mustn't waste it. Mohammed Elobied 11M3 ...read more.
