One of my best friends in Sylhet is a 13 year old boy called Kobir. He lives with his family in a small house just outside Sylhet, with his parents and eight brothers and sisters. They’re incredibly generous to me and lots of fun to be with.
Kobir speaks good English, because he’s been learning from Luke, who came to Sylhet nearly 3 years ago with VSO. Kobir also acts as my official interpreter! I am trying to teach Kobir cockney, but I probably shouldn’t. Luke helped Kobir create these three websites.
Kobir went to England over Christmas. This is his story of the trip.
Kobir also has another website about Bangladesh, which he showed to an English school he visited. It’s got some good pictures and interesting info, and a quiz to test your knowledge.
This is a website of pictures by Kobir’s brother, Samir. Samir is 15, completely self-taught, and really good. He’s also very generous, and a couple of these pictures now brighten up my dining room.
