Zoos are some of the world’s most visited attractions. So let’s take a trip to the zoo and learn key words and phrases you could use! Enjoy this episode with Adam, teacher from Fluency Academy!

The Dialogue:

A: I love going to the zoo!
B: Me too! What is that animal over there?
A: Which one?
B: That thing under that tree… It looks like a monkey, but with a blue t-shirt!
A: It looks like a huge white frog!
B: Oh, wait! It’s just a person!
A: What is he doing??
B: I guess he is feeding the monkeys!

Vocabulary Expansion:

Which one?
This question is a way to ask for a defining characteristic of the object the other person is talking about, so you can differentiate it from the others. We use the word “one” to avoid repeating the object. So it’s much more natural to say “which one” instead of saying “which animal”, for example. Here are some phrases:

Here are two sandwiches: cheese and bacon and egg. Which one do you prefer?
There are ten books to choose from, which one do you want?
Which one is the baby’s mother?

To feed
“To feed” means to give food to a person, group, or animal. Here are some examples:

Let’s go to the park and feed the ducks.
I usually feed the neighbor’s cat while she’s away.
The parents are careful to feed their baby a healthy diet.

To look like
If you look like someone you have an appearance that is very similar to that person, you resemble someone or something. Check out some examples:

What does he look like? I think he looks like his mother.
Do you look like your sister or your brother?
The cake was decorated to look like a car.
