Donkeys Around the World

As I mentioned, burro is the Spanish word for donkey. We have many more names, depending on where we live. Here is how you say donkey in some other languages.
Italian: asino (ah-see-noh)

French: baudet (bo-day)

Finnish: aasi (ah-see)

German: esel (ee-zel)

Czech: osel (oh-sel)

Brazilian Portugese: jumento (ju-men-to). Meet Boneco, a famous "jumento" in Brazil. Boneco is actually a beekeeping donkey, but that is a story for another time…
