An unarranged marriage w. 45
A picture of the author Bali Rai.
We will now begin to read the novel An unarranged marriage by Bali Rai. Go to the learning platform Rex Net before you start reading the book. On the platform I have given you net addresses to Bali Rai's homepage and to other useful sites. Read these before you start reading the novel to get a proper introduction to the author and the themes of the novel.
Please read chapter one until chapter four and answer these questions on the blog. Publish your answer by choosing "kommentar".
