I'm getting ready to meet in a skype conversation with Lee Baber's grade 8 students. When I was invited some days ago I quickly scanned my memory for good stories to tell totally unknown strangers, then I came up with animals as our conversation topic.
I know a list of animal sounds
transcribed to the human alphabet in many different languages and I find this is quite fun.
I also made a search for online media material and found one good resource with free video and sound clips.
