1.1.2. The British built them roads, made a government and learnt them their language so they could communicate.

2. Perspective

2.1. Neutral

2.1.1. The Young british worker was very superficial and socialized and he lived rich and was happy.

2.1.2. There were some Indians having trouble understanding the english language,for others it was easy,the people that had trouble had problems because it was hard to learn a new language because they have different pronunciations.

2.2. Positive

2.2.1. The poor people felt safer and the rich people felt injustice as they felt the poor people shouldn't be respected as much.

2.3. Negative

2.3.1. The boy in the text we read had troubles to understand English because of their teacher. the student’s teacher only knew a couple of words and his salary was on 30 rupees (10 dollars) a month.He mentions it because he is talking about his time during school.

3. Although the British impacted India in many Neutral ways they also made their life's better in many Positive ways and harmed them in many Negative ways.

4. Connections.

4.1. One connection from the legacy and perspective to the thesis is how the population grew because of the British and because of that the poverty grew as well and that was a bad impact. But a good impact for some of them was how they shared their language because when they did that they could trade with the future Indians and understand and then they would both be happy.
