In this chapter Mrs. Frisby goes to see Mr. Ages. Will he be able to help Timothy?Send me a message for your free pdf copy of this book. https://www.italki.com/en/teacher/13365914 Mr Ages was a white mouse who lived across the farm and beyond, in a house that was part of a brick wall. The wall lined the basement of what had once been a large farmhouse. The farmhouse itself had burned down so many years ago that nobody could remember what it had looked like nor who had lived there. The basement remained, a great square hole in the ground; and in its crumbling walls, protected from the wind and snow, numerous small creatures lived. In summer there were snakes, dangerous to Mrs Frisby, but there was no need to worry about them in winter. Just the same, it was a long, hard journey and could be risky unless she was extremely cautious. It was so far, in fact, that Mrs Frisby would not ordinarily have set out so late in the day, for fear that the dark would catch her before she got back. But Timothy obviously could not wait until the next day. So only five minutes after she had announced that she must go, she was gone. If she had been able to follow her nose, that is, to take the shortest route to where Mr Ages lived, her journey would have been easy enough. But since that would have led her close to the farmhouse and the barn, and since the cat stalked those grounds relentlessly, she had to plot a much more roundabout way, circling the whole wide farmyard and sticking to the fringe of the woods. She loped along briskly, moving in the easy, horse-like canter mice use when they are trying to cover ground. Her progress was almost completely noiseless; she chose her path where the earth was bare, or where grass grew, and she avoided dead leaves, which would rustle and crackle even under her small weight. Always she kept an eye out for hiding places — logs, roots, stones, things to scurry under if she should meet a larger animal who might be unfriendly.

Psychological Training for Language Learners (IELTS, Job Interviews, Confidence Building). I started this recording with IELTS learners; however, it's something that ALL language learners CAN benefit from NOW. It is something that isn't talked about by English teachers (very few teachers do), the psychological aspects of success behind IELTS speaking, job interview successes, and confident communication in English or other languages. It is something about your head—how you think, feel, see, and hear; therefore, how you interpret reality—that is the key, the essential ingredient for a language learner's success and life overall. Please allow me to guide you along the process of softening towards your goals (sometimes people are too strict and too intense about it). My voice is gentle and deep, which will help you relax and feel at ease. Enjoy the journey and have fun, here is the recording: https://www.italki.com/en/post/x0oNOVSkD696edEQSck6Je If you'll resonate with some of my ideas and you'll feel compelled to book my class, do so; no hesitation is needed; you are in safe hands with me. Be well and feeeeel good now...
