Animal Sounds

Did you know that animals in Chinese speaking countries sound different to animals in English speaking countries?

For one example, Chinese people say that dogs go Wang! Wang! Not Woof! Woof! or BowWow as they do for English speaking people. Also cows go Mou Mou not Moo, sheep go Mai Mai instead of Baa, ducks go Ga Ga instead of Quack, chickens go Ji Ji, and horses go Si Si instead of Neigh. Cats however do sound very similar to Meow, though it is spelt in pinyin as Miao.
