2nd languages

A mother mouse and her children are out for a stroll one afternoon. Out leaps a cat from behind a car and frightens them.

The mouse lets out an enormous growl and then starts barking loudly. The cat turns tail and runs away.

‘See?’ says the mouse to her startled brood. ‘Now you see why it’s so important to know a second language?’”
