可以幫我回答有關My fair lady的問題嗎~謝謝

II. At the beginning of the film, Mr. Higgins was taking down what people said in a very strange "language." What was that "language?" And by listening to what people said and how they said it, Mr. Higgins could tell where they were from. Why was that?

III. What are some characteristics of Eliza's speech? What's Higgins' reaction towards her speech?

IV. What plan did Mr. Higgins and Mr. Pickering have for Eliza? Do you think they would make it?

這是語概課的問題 偏偏那堂課我剛好沒去上 就沒看到My fair lady的影片了
