This is something difficult to add in the course, but why not teach this to you here?

I created this myself, all images are taken from Wikipedia. Did I forget something? Please feel free to add.

I want to add that some animal sounds use repetition, and you can use them as verbs such as;

kurbağa- vırak vırak (vıraklamak) Köpek- hav hav (havlamak) ördek- vak vak (vaklamak) kuş- cik cik (ciklemek)

Also "eşek" says "aa iii" and "koyun/kuzu" says "meee". I just thought that just writing ai and me could be confusing.

You can listen to this children's song. :)

it is really great!

to be honest, pigeons' sound is different then cik. An image of another bird may be used.

Actually for the birds, we should have another topic. :D inspired by Kuşçu Şevket

Teşekkürler!

But I think the font is not clear.

BTW: Do the bubbles refer to animals' sounds?

My boyfriend and I had a conversation about animal sounds when I kept hearing people in Turkey say, "Bok! Bok!" and realized they were saying "Look!" So I asked him, "Then what sound do chickens make?" haha. I thought we were the only ones that had these conversations. :)
