Animals

Activity 1

Watch this video - it’s a bit longer than the other ones you’ve seen, but you’ll see loads of animals in it! Listen out for any that you already know, and when you’ve watched it, practise saying them - plus any new ones that you learn.

Since there’s so many, here’s a table of the animals mentioned in the video, plus a few more, to help you:

SpanishPronunciationEnglish
Un hipopótamooon eepohpotahmohA hippopotamus
Un leónoon leyohnA lion
Un monooon mohnohA monkey
JirafaheerahfahGiraffe
CebrathehbrahZebra
TigreteegrehTiger
Un elefanteoon elefahntehAn elephant
Un perrooon pehr-rohA dog
Ovejaobeh-hahSheep
Un caballooon kahbahyohA horse
VacabakkahCow
Una serpienteoonah sehrpeeyentehA snake
GatogahtohCat
Un lorooon lohrohA parrot
CerdotherhdohPig
Una ranaoonah rahnahA frog
OsoossohBear
TiburónteebooronnShark

Wow! There’s a lot to remember there. Don’t worry if you can’t learn them all at once, maybe for now you can just learn the ones from the activity sheets that you’ll complete in this section. Here’s one to print out. If you don’t have a printer, you can draw your own animals and complete the activity on some paper.

Activity 2

For this activity, it’ll help to watch some of the video again, from about 11:52 - 12:02. Listen to how Aitana asks Dani ‘What is your favourite animal?’ and how Dani responds with ‘My favourite animal is…’.

Here’s a table to help you:

SpanishPronunciationEnglish
¿Cúal es tu animal favorito?¿kwal ess too aneemahl favohreetoh?What is your favourite animal?
Mi animal favorito es ____mee aneemahl fabohreetoh ess ____My favourite animal is ____

Find a partner to practise with - take it in turns asking and replying.

When you’ve had a go at that, you can print off and complete the activity sheet, just follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper.
