3.en.43 Animal sounds. From donkeys to birds: pío, pío, piu piu, tweet, tweet

I am sure that if we recorded a British donkey and a Spanish one they would sound exactly the same, but the way different language mimic animal sounds is not the same, in fact , sometimes it is totally different.

English: to bray

Spanish: rebuznar

Catalan: bramar

Have a look at birds:

Spanish: pío, pío

Catalan: piu, piu

English: cheep cheep/tweet/chirp

Now you know why you can see a little bird in  Twitter 

Roosters are pretty different too

Spanish: kikirikí

Catalan: cocorico

English: cock-a-doodle-doo

Some work for you . When animals are young they are called differently. Do you remember penguings and chicks?

Well, in this page, you will find a good selection of animals and their young. Have a look, learn the names , listen to the sound they make and do the test.

  1. Did you learn any new words?
  2. Did you find the page useful to learn vocabulary?
