文字稿 // Whistle Languages

Can you whistle? 你會吹口哨嗎? I can! Well… I'm not very good at it.

It's not easy to learn how to whistle. Some people can't do it… they can't
whistle.

But other people can whistle very well… and some people even use whistling
as a language! 有人把吹口哨當成一種語言。

It's true! There are people that sometimes whistle to talk to each other.

Why? Well, whistling is louder than shouting 口哨比用喊叫還大聲。

And whistling is clearer. You can hear whistling more clearly than shouting.

The whistles can mean different words... a high whistle sound means one
thing... and a low whistle sound has a different meaning.
口哨有高低不同音階,可以傳達不同的含意。

After a lot of practice, people can learn to understand this new language… a
whistle language.

Cool! They can say "I can speak English, I can speak Japanese... and I can
speak Whistle!"

Ha! 多加練習,有一天你也可以說 "我還會說口哨語言!"

Whistling is fun... and some people use it to talk... it can be a language!
