Reading Comprehension - Hansel and Gretel

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will test your reading comprehension of some fun tales. First up is Hansel and Gretel! To begin with, comprehension is composed of two parts. The first part is the means of determining just how well you are able to remember people, events, places, times and things within a given context. The second part is to see just how well you are able to communicate and/or relay to others your understanding of the those same types of items within the given context. In this case, we will be addressing your Spanish reading comprehension.

Being tested on your reading comprehension should not be new to you. You have been tested on it in nearly every class and subject in school. Of course, here, again, we want to see just how well your brain is comprehending Spanish.

Having to understand Spanish does make things a bit more of a challenge because Spanish is still very new to you. However, it is the challenges, like these quizzes, that help to make that process become easier over time. Therefore, in order to make this quiz a little easier, we are going to be working with a very familiar tale. That is the story of Hansel and Gretel. There will be other familiar stories to come in separate reading comprehension quizzes so this will also get you prepared for those.

Your first task before taking this quiz will be to read the story of Hansel and Gretel to refresh your memory. If you do not have the book, you can find the story on the internet. If you believe you can remember a good deal of the story, then you can proceed on to the quiz section. At this point, you have enough Spanish vocabulary words in your bank to be able to effectively take this quiz.

The quiz will work as follows: You will be asked ten things about the story of Hansel and Gretel (the questions will be in English) and then you will relay the answer in Spanish. Again, you will need to know the story. It’s really a short story but it is important that you have read it. You can, of course, challenge yourself to take the quiz first to see how well you do remember and, if you do not get a great score – go back and read the story and then come back and retake the quiz to see how well you do the next time. The challenge is really up to you! So if you are up to the challenge, then move on to the quiz and see just how much you can remember about the story of Hansel and Gretel!
