Animals in Japanese
In this Rocket Japanese lesson we’ll be taking a trip to the zoo to talk about all types of animals in Japanese!
You might have a dog or cat at home, but I bet you don’t have a monkey! You’d have to take a tour to the local zoo or animal sanctuary while in Japan to see some of these.
After this lesson you’ll be able to talk about the animals in your life and also about the more rare animals you don’t see every day.
