Animals in Portuguese
In this Rocket Portuguese lesson we'll be taking a trip to the zoo – zoológico – to talk about all types of animals – animais! 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 while in a Portuguese-speaking country to see some of these. Brazil especially presents a great opportunity to see some wildlife – the Amazon is so close!
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 in every day.
Let's check out this lesson on animals in Portuguese!
