小编摘要:双语小鹦鹉叫Mittu,两岁,在英国居住。Mittu能用英语和乌尔都语两种语言问好。

导读:在Bradford长大的非洲灰鹦鹉Mittu原先只会说乌尔都语,而它的新主人说英语。为了让Mittu更好地融入新家,主人便开始教它学英语,年仅两岁的Mittu很快就练成了伶牙俐齿的双语小鹦鹉。不仅会两门语言,小鹦鹉还能学狗叫和模仿冰箱的报警音。据今年一项研究表明,非洲灰鹦鹉的智商和四岁大的孩子差不多。

Clever: Mittu the parrot speaks in Urdu after growing up in Bradford


Mittu the parrot deserves congratulations – or as the African grey might say, ‘shabaash’.

The bilingual bird has developed an impressive vocabulary in both English and Urdu after being raised in a home where both are spoken.

As well as the likes of ‘who’s a pretty boy then’, the two-year-old has mastered the traditional Muslim greeting ‘asalaam alaykum’ and ‘bismillah’, the Urdu for ‘in the name of Allah’.

Owner Ghaffar Ahmed, 36, said: ‘He speaks Urdu and English. But he also barks like a dog and makes the noise of the refrigerator alarm, so he likes making all sorts of noises really.’

Mittu lives with Mr Ahmed’s family in Stourbridge, West Midlands. This year a study found that African greys are capable of the same level of intelligent reasoning as a four-year-old child.
