  1. Jorge y José estudian en noche.
    The word Jorge is Spanish for George and the word José is Spanish for Joseph. This means that the first and last answers can be eliminated. Notice that between Jorge and José there is the letter y which is Spanish for 'and'. The second answer does not include this conjunction so it, too, is not correct. The correct translation is: George and Joseph study at night. Notice that in this instance 'en' in the sentence means 'at' rather than 'in'. As you have seen this earlier, you will come across many instances of using 'en' for 'at' rather than 'a' for 'at'. The novice speaker will tend to use 'a' while the seasoned speaker will use 'en'.
  2. Christine makes cookies on Saturday.
    Each answer has correctly translated Christine to Cristina. In addition, each answer has correctly translated on Saturday as en sábado. The second answer shows the plural translation for makes. Hacen means they make. You can now eliminate the second answer as it is not translated correctly. The Spanish word for cookies is galletas. It is a feminine word and it does not contain an accent mark. You can now eliminate the third and last answers. The correct translation is then: Cristina hace galletas en el sábado.
  3. Creemos en buenos doctores.
    The words buenos doctores are Spanish for good doctors. Each answer has correctly translated this. The verb creemos is Spanish for we believe. This now means that the first, second and last answers can be eliminated. The third answer is the answer that shows the correct translation of the sentence which is: We believe in good doctors.
  4. Abuela compra la alfombra verde.
    The word abuela is Spanish for grandmother and each answer has translated this correctly. The word verde is Spanish for the color green. Again, each answer has translated this correctly as well. The verb compra is Spanish for buys. This then means that the third and last answers can be eliminated. The words la alfombra mean the rug which now tells you that the second answer is the correct translation.
  5. They learn to speak Italian.
    The word ellos is the Spanish pronoun for they and each answer has translated this correctly. Hablar italiano is Spanish for to speak Italian. Again, each answer has translated this correctly. The Spanish verb for to learn is aprender. This now shows you that the first, second and third answers can now be eliminated. The sentence than translates as: Ellos aprenden a hablar italiano.
  6. ¡Ella está emocionada!
    The word ella is the Spanish pronoun for she and it has been translated correctly in each answer. The word emocionada is Spanish for excited. This now means that the second, third and last answers can each be eliminated leaving the first answer of: She is excited!
  7. Él deja la casa a las seis.
    The word él is the Spanish pronoun for he and this has been correctly translated in each answer. In addition, the word seis is Spanish for the number six. It, too, has been correctly translated in each answer. The word casa is Spanish for house and/or home. It is a singular word which means you can eliminate the first, third and last answers as they show the plural translation of the word casa. The verb deja is Spanish for leaves. The word las replaces the word for hours (horas) which also means o’clock. This then shows you that the correct translation is: He leaves home at six o’clock.
  8. Caminan a la tienda.
    The words la tienda are Spanish for the store. The first answer says a store so it can be eliminated as it has the wrong translation. The verb caminan is Spanish for they walk and a is Spanish for to. This then tells you that the translation is: They walk to the store.
  9. She washes the car.
    The Spanish pronoun for she is ella and this has been translated correctly in each answer. The Spanish word for car is coche and it, too, has been translated correctly in each answer. However, coche is a masculine word and the second answer shows it as a feminine word. Therefore, the second answer can be eliminated. The word the is a definite article and the masculine definite article in Spanish is el. The third answer can now be eliminated. The verb washes in Spanish is lava which means that the correct translation is: Ella lava el coche.
  10. Ellos bailan en la calle.
    The word ellos is the Spanish pronoun for they. Each answer has this translated correctly. The words la calle are Spanish for the street. Each answer has also translated this correctly. The word en means in or on. The first answer is missing this word so it is not translated correctly. The verb bailan is Spanish for dance showing that the translation is: They dance in the street.
