I can speak with my cats ^_^
Im speaking with them by telephaty, I dont know how I learned it, but they understand me!
Find some animal, your pet (cat, dog, ..) and imagine tunnel starting in your head and ending in animal's head. Then try to send some massage imagine that the word what you sayed in your mind is going from your head, through the tunnel to head of the animal.. Practice this and after a few weeks practice you will hear like the animal is replying you! or if youre talented it will reply you after a few days practice, but it still need a time. I can speak only with cats its hard for me to connect to other kinds of animals..
sorry for my bad english.. and good luck with this!
