As you approach the end of the Spanish Difficult Review quizzes you will notice that there is a great deal of emphasis placed upon being able to think in Spanish. In order to become fluent in a new language you must be able to think and even visualize in that language. So think that you even need to be able to dream in the new language. Either way, it does take a lot of practice to get there. However, if you approach every quiz with the thought of training your brain to think, you will soon be amazed at how automatic that thinking will become! Until that time, however, it is still time to practice so take a look at the following short paragraphs and then answer the ten quiz questions that follow.

“Allí una vez fue un castillo. En el castillo allí vivió ocho hermanas. Las hermanas fueron princesas. Todas durmieron en una recámara en ocho camas pequeñas. Aunque fueron princesas, fueron muy pobres. El padre de las hermanas, el rey, perdió todo su dinero. Las hermanas poseyeron cuatro zapatos. Cada hermana llevaron uno zapato. El pueblo llamó a las chicas las hermanas que saltan porque tuvieron saltar en el uno pie que tuvo un zapato.

Las hermanas no les importaba ser pobres. Ellas fueron felices y amaron ayudar gentes. Porque de esto, el pueblo las amó. Un día vino un guapo príncipe. Se rió cuando vio las princesas que saltan. Él vio que cada hermana era hermosa. Este príncipe fue rico y tuvo siete hermanos. Él llamó a sus hermanos para venir a ver a las princesas. En la primavera, todas las princesas se casaron con un príncipe y se trasladaron a un nuevo castillo.”
