  1. I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew because what Uncle Andrew says is often wrong.

    For example?

  2. “Narrow-minded” means a person who does not want to hear the other side of the argument. Uncle Andrew thinks that the other people were strange. I disagree with him because his character is self-centred.

  3. Other people considered Mrs. Lefay as odd but Uncle Andrew doesn’t think so.
    So “narrow-minded” means people who have prejudice.
    I don’t agree with him because he often tells a lie.

  4. Marrow-mind means people who rule out an idea or another person’s reason in favour of their own opinion. Uncle Andrew said people are so narrow-minded because Mrs.Lefay wasn’t accepted by others only because she was different from others.

    I don’t agree with him because it is silly to think people narrow-mind only because they say Mrs. Lefay is mysterious.

  5. “Narrow-minded” means people who aren’t tolerant and don’t agree with things or are not willing to accept or understand new and different ideas and so on. I disaree with Uncle Andrew because he is very abnormal and I think his ideas and actions ftowards the children are also very selfish.

  6. “Narrow-minded” means people who are not willing to listen to new idea or to the opinions of others.
    In this passage, he thinks that people who don’t accept Mrs. Lefay lack tolerance.
    I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew because he tells lies and I think he is an egocentric person.

  7. Uncle Andrew thought Mrs. Lefay wasn’t mad, but other people didn’t understand. So “narrow-minded” means people who don’t understand new ideas and have a prejudice against them.

    I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew because he is a very selfish person.

  8. “Narrow-mind” means not having tolerance and having prejudice.
    Uncle Andrew said people considered Mrs. Lafay a strange person and didn’t accept her.

    I don’t agree with him, because this is his thinking. I don’t think so. I think only his idea is a prejudice against people.

  9. “Narrow-minded” means people who are unwilling to accept or understand new or different ideas, opinions, or customs.
    In this passage, Uncle Andrew thinks the people who don’t accept Mrs. Lefay lack tolerance.
    I don’t agree with him, because he is quite a charater. I can’t believe him.

  10. “Narrow-minded” means people who aren’t tolerant and don’t agree with things which depart from common sense. Uncle Andrew thinks the things that Mrs. LeFay did aren’t bad things. I disagree with Uncle Andrew because his ideas and actions are ridiculous.

  11. “Narrow-minded” means lacking in tolerance or breadth of vision. Uncle Andrew thinks that people who consider Mrs.Lefay strange lack tolerance, in this passage. I disagree with him, because I think his statement is almost totally wrong.

  12. “Narrow-minded” means people didn’t accept the grandmother who had been called an odd person.
    I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew. I think he is an awful person because he often tells a lie, and he is selfish. I can’t believe him.

  13. “Narrow-minded” means people aren’t willing to listen to new ideas or to the opinions of others.
    In this passage, Uncle Andrew thinks people don’t accept Mrs. LeFay’s character.
    I don’t agree with him, because I have impression he teases Digory, so I can’t believe him.

  14. “Narrow–minded” means people who are not generous. In this passage, Uncle Andrew thinks that people who regard Mrs. Lafay as mad person are not generous. In the end, I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew because what Uncle Andrew says is often wrong.

  15. “Narrow-minded” means people who don’t have tolerance. In this passage, Uncle Andrew thinks that many people are not tolerant of Mrs.Lefay who was a strange person and was in prison, but Uncle Andrew thinks Mrs.Lefay was not a bad person. I don’t agree with Uncle Andrew because I think that people who are in prison did some some wrongs, so I can’t say that these people are not bad.

  16. Uncle Andrew thinks that Mrs. Lefay wasn’t mad and she had hidden wisdom like Uncle Andrew himself. But other people didn’t think so. So he says people are so narrow-minded.

    I don’t agree with him, because I don’t regard Uncle Andrew as a genius.
