Vocabulary - For the Love of Animals!

This Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz will challenge you on the Spanish names for animals. Who doesn’t love animals? Oh, we may like different kinds of animals but we still love animals! Animals are great companions and they can be a lot of fun. Just watching them play can bring a smile to your face! And now that you are learning how to speak in Spanish it only seems natural that you should be able to point out the different kinds of animals that we all love, albeit some of them we would rather love from a distance.

Most of these Spanish words are quite different from their English counterparts so it might take you a little longer to remember the new names.

Practice saying each word several times. Close your eyes and see if you can envision the animal. So if you feel ready, let’s begin to tackle your first round of Spanish animal vocabulary words.

English Spanish Pronounced (Phonetically) As
animal (el) animal ă-nē-măl
ape (el) mono mō-nō
bear (el) oso ō-sō
bunny (el) conejito con-ā-hē-tō (Notice the 'j' has an 'h' sound.)
bull (el) toro tor-ō
cat (el) gato gă-tō
cow (la) vaca vă-kă
deer (el) venado vā-nă-dō
dog (el) perro pě-rrō (Roll the double 'r' with your tongue.)
goat (la) cabra kă-bră
