Hi Emma!
Here in Brazil we have some expressions quite similar; but our country is big and it’s could be different to one place to another, even in the same state. I live in Rio de Janeiro. I’ll talk about some local animals expressions.

Dog, ass and pig have the same meaning (I think it’s universal!)

Weasel we don’t have it.

Chicken is the person unfaithful in a relationship or those who has sex with anybody.

Rat, here we usually use the expression “library rat” to book lover’s.

Deer in Rio today is calling for male friend. Can be offensive calling for homosexual male. And can be (for male) offensive calling in a strife.

Elephant we use in the expression “white elephant” to public buildings that are not useful purpose.

And finally, Owl is the best one, we use in the expression “Owl mom”, for careful mom.

    “White elephant” has a similar meaning in English, too. It is often used to talk about expensive but useless projects. However, it can also be used for small, cheap, often silly or decorative objects. A “white elephant sale” is like a “yard sale” or “rummage sale”—a sale of cheap second-hand (not new) objects, often to raise money for charity, a church, etc. A “white elephant gift swap” usually happens around Christmastime. Everyone brings a small cheap gift. Someone can either unwrap a new gift, or “steal” a gift someone else has already opened.

    Some recent examples:

    Brisbane picked to host 2032 Olympics: “Brisbane said it already has 84% of stadiums and event venues in place to fit the IOC’s modern demand of avoiding excessive spending and potential white-elephant projects.”
    Oakland’s white elephant sale goes online

Really,I like vocabulary.


Thanks!! Was excelent


Emma , you are amazing as usual


Hi Emma, thank you for that…I got 9/10..hopefully I can do better in writing and speaking.


Emma questioned about meanings these words in our language. ‘Pig’ is a rude word in my language and the meaning equal English. ‘Ass’ is a less rude word (in meaning the animal :) ). ‘Rat’ has different meanings (We call so a thief who steal from friends or colleagues. Very negative meaning). We do not have analogs for English expressions ”Elephant’,’Dog’,’Chicken’,’Weasel’. For us these words mean the animals. ‘Deer’ has negative and funny meaning which absolutely different from English (because the deer has antlers(horns) ;) )

Great lesson!!Thanks Emma ;)


I am not a chicken anymore but I am still a deer


Hi Emma, you are amazing as always. You teach your lessons very well or I understand you well. That’s why your pronunciation is very good and you explain it one by one. In our Turkish culture, animal names are associated with people in a positive or negative sense. For example, we sometimes call a bad person a ‘snake’. Meaning; I mean, it’s very sneaky and sneaky and can sting and kill you as a treacherous. Best regards


Great lessons, Emma thanks .you are the best.

i love to learn english by your lessons.


Thanks Emma!


thanks teacher. It was a funny lesson. In Colombia we also use animal words to refer people in diferente situation. For example:
When you say a man is a dog, we talk about that person likes stay with two or more women, of course on the sly.
A person who afraid scary movies or new things to do is a chicken. I think that meaning of this word is around the world.
We always have rats in Colombia. Our politians always do things on the sly, they are a rats.
The other expresion like a deer in the headlights or elephant on the room are new for me and I find it very funny and interesting.

Hi Emma thanks a lot for your helpful lessons, I am from Iraq here we are using the same expressions for Dod Pig, chicken, and rat as well, but the only difference is with an owl which is used for ominous guys


Thank you Emma


Hi Emma,
I am from Brazil, and in our culture if somebody say: “this girl is a cat”, it is means that she is a gorgeous girl. (ssrsrsr), and if somebody say that a man is a deer, it means that he is a homosexual man.

Adm. Paulo Rocha

9/10! Good! In Chinese, the dog is a negative word also, but rat means smart, the pig is the same meaning!

Emma, thanks a lot for the episode!! :)




We characterize animals, does anyone know how they caracterize humans.


Finally I found a program that will improve my level of English.


In Iraq when someone is late to do something and the remaining time is not enough, we call him trapped like a dog ,like Ali trapped like a dog
