Animals in Two Languages

I Love Nature
About

How can the same animals sound so different in English and Spanish?  The answer lies in language and culture, not in the animals. To demonstrate this, Children's Museum Houston educator, Belkis, and special guest, Fabiana, interpret the sounds of some animals, depending on how they are heard by people who speak English or Spanish.  Follow this fun interpretation of onomatopoeias (words which describe or mimics the sound) in two languages.
