Words and Phrases to Teach a Parrot

How many phrases can a parrot learn?

Several species of birds can mimic human speech, but parrots have mastered this ability. They don't do this to have intimate conversations with their owners, but to "fit in" with their herd, according to a 2015 study published in Plos One.

Happy owners of parrots who mimic human speech are often unsure what kinds of words and phrases would be the best to teach their pets.

Start with the basics to see what kind of imitation and learning ability your parrot has, and work your way from there. You never know - your bird could become the world's next great talkative talent.

"Good morning!"

Teaching your bird to say "hello" is often the first thing bird owners try to do with their parrots, and for good reason: the word "hello" is short and easy for birds to articulate, and provides a point. The ideal starting point to teach your bird an impressive vocabulary.

As with any bird training exercise, it is important to be patient with your bird and practice repetition daily. Some types of parrots are more adept at speaking than others; Keynote speakers include African gray parrots, Amazon parrots, cockatoos, and cockatoos.


Teaching your bird to say its own name is a good way to stimulate speech in parrots. The name of a bird is a word that they will hear several times a day throughout their life, so it is natural for them to try to vocalize it themselves.

Once your bird has learned its name, try teaching it to say your name or the names of other pets or family members. You may be surprised at how easily your bird answers calls to you and others.

"Hungry and thirsty"

By talking to parrots in context, they can learn what certain words really mean and, in turn, use them appropriately in speech. If you are trying to stimulate speech in your parrot, try saying "hungry" and "thirsty" every time you fill or refresh the bird's food and water bowls.

Over time, your bird may be able to understand the meaning of these words, as well as how to articulate them, and will begin to verbally advise you when it is ready for a snack.

"Beautiful bird"

The phrase "pretty bird" has long been popular with bird owners trying to teach their pets to talk. Like "hello", "pretty bird" is a short, quick phrase that many birds find interesting.

Don't expect your parrot to be able to imitate multi-word sentences until he has mastered a single word.

The way to help your bird master words and phrases is through repetition; after all, the bird imitates you, and the best way to imitate anything is to listen to it over and over again.

Your favorite song

A fun way to encourage speech in your parrot is to try teaching him part of one of your favorite songs. Birds have a natural inclination to enjoy music, and many make it evident by "dancing" whenever their owners turn up the volume.

To teach your bird a song, start line by line and see how far you can build on it. Even if your musical tastes don't exactly match your bird's, trying to learn a song together will be a lot of fun for both of you.
