#048 How to talk about Animals (Pets) in English

Hi, everyone!

I'm Georgiana, founder of
My mission is to help YOU to speak English fluently and confidently.

  • In today's lesson, you'll learn how to talk about pets. And you're a dog or a cat owner you'll find out what to do before bringing them to the vet.
  • And right after that, you'll practice your English speaking with a funny mini story.

Before I start, I'd like to thank everyone who follows me on iTunes, YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, etc. Thank you very much for your support and all your positive reviews. Every time you share your honest opinion, you're in fact helping others to discover a more effective and enjoyable way of learning English.

Do you have a pet? I'm proud to own a beautiful white female dog. When she was younger she used to be incredibly active and playful, but now, sadly, she's getting older, so she needs to see a vet more often than before.

Whenever we wanna know more about pets we usually ask about their breed. The word "breed" has several meanings. For example, if I say that my dog is a White Swiss Shepherd, then I'm talking about her breed which reveals the type of dog she is and her origins. The breed of an animal indicates its average height, its type of coat and can even give us a little insight into its personality. We also use the word "breed" differently. For instance, people who raise animals are called breeders.

Since we're talking about pets, I wanna point something out. Many students have asked me if they had to use the pronoun "it" when talking about animals. I just wanted to say that it's not always a rule you have to follow, if you already know the gender of the animal you can use "she" or "he" just like when you're talking about people.

The connection between you and your pet is usually a special one and the more time you spend with them, the stronger the bond between the two becomes. You rejoice when you see them playing and running, but you also suffer when their health is at risk.
