    he had a hard upbringing wandering the streets of Lisbon.

    He was a quiet boy, spoke reasonable English, and had obviously had a hard upbringing wandering the streets of Lisbon.


    I'm in trouble with the sentence above. Could anyone please simplify it for me?

    not a teacher

    He had a quiet manner, his English was adequate, and it was obvious that he'd had a difficult life growing up on the streets of Lisbon.
