¡Hola! ¡Es tiempo para aprender sobre los animales en español! (Hello! It’s time to learn about animals in Spanish!) If you can’t tell, I’m raring to use my Spanish vocabulary again and I’m thrilled to have the chance to teach it to my kids over the summer.
One of their favorite topics is, of course, animals. So, I put together a simple Spanish animal words printable pack of flashcards that I’m sharing with you all today!
Spanish Animal Words Pronunciation Guide
If you’re going to learn these words, you’ll need to know how to say them, right? Here’s a quick pronunciation guide for the words in the flashcard pack. The underlined syllable is the one that is stressed.
el elefante – ell el-eh-fahn-tay
el león – ell lay-on
la cebra – lah say-brah
la rana – lah rah-nah
el tigre – ell tee-gray
el cerdo – ell sair-doh
la tortuga – lah tor-too-gah
la jirafa – lah heer-ah-fah
The great thing about the Spanish alphabet is that once you learn how the letters sound, you’re halfway to pronouncing Spanish correctly. In Spanish words (unlike English), letters typically sound the same all the time.
