Come and help Paddington Bear prepare for his travels and learn some new words in Spanish along the way!

What goes meong – meong? A South Korean dog. In Iceland a dog goes voff-voff, while in Russia dogs say gav-gav. Let’s have some fun discovering and comparing animal sounds. You might be surprised to see how different they can be from one language to another.
