Improve your English pronunciation by making ANIMAL SOUNDS! In this fun lesson, I'll teach you the names of many animals and about the sounds they make. This beginner lesson is a perfect to watch with your kids! The great thing about practicing animal sounds is that they often have strong vowel sounds which let you practice how native English speakers enunciate. You'll get to hear my pronunciation and repeat after me. So let's have some fun with our English! Take the quiz at: http://www.engvid.com/animals-and-the-sounds-they-make/#quiz
Moo. Moo. Moo. Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo. Moo. Moo. Hey, cow. What are you doing? Moo. This is a cow, and the cow lives in not a house, a barn. Do you like cows? Are they delicious? I'm going to eat you, cow. Don't do it! Okay, so today... Hi, everyone out there. My name's Ronnie. If you've got children sitting around, bring them here, they're going to learn something, you're going to learn something. It's going to be fantastic. I promise I won't say bad words. Maybe just one. So, today I'm going to teach you-moo, barn-animal sounds-fun, fun, fun-in English. And while your kids are learning this, you are going to be practicing pronunciation. I even do it right now. So learn English animal noises, practice your pronunciation, have fun with your kids, and eat a hamburger. I can't think of anything better for you to do right now.
The first animal, as I said, delicious, is chuck la moo a cow. A cow says moo. If I go up to the board here, I have a cow. A cow says moo. Sometimes the sounds in English and the words that we use for the sounds are the same. With a cow, it's moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo all around. If you're really, really, really good at cow noises, you can even go maaa. You try. No. Do it again. One more time. A cow goes... Yeah, I like it. I like it.
Okay, next one. Quack, quack. Do you know what noise that is or what animal makes that noise? Quack, quack, quack. It is a duck. Quack. Now, a duck does not live in a barn. Quack. A duck lives in the water, and they're really cool because they can fly and swim. Awesome. Also delicious. I would eat duck. Have you eaten duck? Quack. So, a duck says quack. Now, ladies and gentlemen, it's really difficult in English sometimes for me to hear if you are saying "duck" or if you are saying "dog". Everyone from around the world, I don't care what country you're from, this is really, really hard, and this is where you get to practice your pronunciation. So, when you want to say this guy-quack, quack-you're going to say: "duck". It rhymes with the word "truck". Mm-hmm. If you want to say man's best friend, it's a dog. Dog. Okay?
I have a dog, he's really cute. You want to see him? You ready? Do you have a dog? This is my dog. Woof, woof. Sometimes dogs go woof, woof. It depends how big they are. My dog's pretty small and he says woof, woof. In English, a dog says woof, woof. Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof. And he actually... Dogs don't talk. Did you know that? Oh, sorry, they do talk, but when they talk, the language they're lear-... It's not English, it's bark. So dogs bark, but the sound that we make is woof, woof. And the language that they speak is bark. Not barf, bark. So, we have a dog says woof, and we have a-I didn't eat it-a duck says quack. Duck, dog. And this guy is a cow, and he says moo. Woo-hoo.
Next up, again we have to be careful with our pronunciation because if you don't say the "p" on this animal, sheep, or if you say the e's wrong, I think you're saying ship. Ships don't really make any noises, do they? Kids, ships? No. Ships kind of go: "Unh, I'm a ship." But this guy, a sheep... A sheep says maaa or if it's a boy it says baaa. So boy sheep say baaa, and girl sheep say maaa, maaa. Are you a boy sheep or a girl sheep? If you're a boy sheep, you go baaa. If you're a girl sheep, go maaa. Make your best sheep noise. Go! Oo, I liked it. Okay, so sheep. Baaa or maaa.
Next one, one of my favourites. I've ridden one. Oh, I've forgotten something. Delicious, delicious, never tried, Ronnie hates sheep. This is the only food that people really, really, really like, lamb, mutton also known as. Guess what? That's a sheep you're eating. It's probably the only animal that I don't like to eat. So, please don't ever feed me sheep or lamb. I will... I just won't eat it. I don't like it.
The next one up, one of my personal favourites is ee-aw, ee-aw. Ready? Ee-aw. Or we say hee-haw. I like ee-aw better. It is one of the most funny animals in the world, a donkey. Ee-aw. Do you have a pet donkey? I don't. I have a dog, not a donkey. This is a donkey. Donkeys say ee-aw. Mm-hmm.
Next up, [snorts] we have a pig. Delicious again. Now, unfortunately, I lost my pig. I don't have a pig anymore. I think somebody ate my pig. They had bacon, or pork, or a nice roast. So I don't have a pig, but I have a picture of a pig if you'd like to see.
