Mind Your Manners!

This Spanish Easy Review picture quiz will see how well you can mind your manners in Spanish. In fact, probably one of the very first things you are taught as a child is to have good manners. You are asked to say please and thank you or I’m sorry. It is really very important to learn good manners early on in life. A person who has good manners will generally develop very good friendships, get better grades in school and, later on in life, find better jobs. This is true in any language which is why, early on in learning Spanish, you were taught how to mind your manners!

Now for moving forward with the quiz. As you will see, there are ten sentences. Each sentence contains a good manners word or words that are shown in all capitalized letters. With politeness, see how quickly you can locate the Spanish translation of that capitalized word or words. Here’s wishing you great success!
