The English is wrong in almost every possible way. Az a kicsi lány, of course, is THAT little girl, not THE little girl. More importantly, if you say "shout here" in English, that can only mean "itt kiabál." We don't have an easy way to say "ide kiabál" -- we have to translate it as something like "shouts in this direction" "shouts in my direction" or "shouts in our direction"

The little girl = A kicsi lány, That little girl = Az a kicsi lány

I agree this is totally wrong...

"Az a kicsi lány nem ide kiabál" is "That little girl doesn't shout (toward) here."
