Варианты ответов к тексту Bullying again?
1. The text tells us a story about Audra Mari and her being bullied as a student at high school. She was picked on because of her height.
2. Audra Mari: One Sunday, I came home and there was a big picture on the door. It was basically making fun of me because I’m tall. Once the girls prepared a slogan to support a football team. The slogan wishing good luck faced the team, but the back of the slogan read «Go Home Mari». And the whole student section saw it. One time during lunch, I was sitting with all my friends, and a girl came up to me and threw a paper lunch bag at me. She said, «You can eat this for lunch, it is for horses.»
3. In the beginning, she tried to ignore them hoping that they would lose any interest and leave her alone. She didn’t tell anyone about cases of abuse apart from her close friends. Later she turned to her mother for help and assistance. If I were her, I would have talked with parents first.
4. Her piece of advice goes as follows: pay no attention to negative criticism. If you found yourself in a situation like hers, the world wouldn’t end then. You should look on the bright side. Concentrate on the things which make you happy. You can’t change your critics but you are not obliged to take them seriously. They have the right to speak their mind, but you don’t have to take it into consideration. If they are too insistent, they may face court action.
