A cat goes "meow!" A shotgun goes "bang!" A doorbell goes "ding dong!" When we imitate sounds, we call those words "onomatopoeia". In this fun lesson, I will teach you some useful English words that imitate sounds and noises made by different people, animals, objects, and even the noises made by a well-known breakfast cereal! This will make your conversations more animated and descriptive. You will also encounter these words when reading novels and comic books. Onomatopoeia are NOT the same in every language, so after watching, do the quiz at to see if you recognize these sounds in English!
