Animals in Chinese
In this Rocket Chinese lesson we'll be taking a trip to the zoo – 动物园 dòngwùyuán – to talk about all types of animals –动物 dòngwù! You might have a dog or cat at home, but I bet you don't have an elephant. You'd have to take a zoo tour while in China to see some of these animals.
After this lesson you'll be able to talk about the animals in your life and also about the rare ones you don't see every day.
Let's get started with this free lesson on animals in Chinese!
Pronouncing animals in Chinese
How did you do? A lot of these animal words sound totally different from to the names in English. So you still need to practice, practice, practice to get the pronunciation right! Feel free to go through this lesson again and say the words out loud until you have animal names perfected.
