What Is It Like?

This Spanish Easy Review picture quiz will test you on describing what something is like in Spanish. Have you ever had to describe something to someone who had never seen what you were describing or who could not see what you were describing? Have you ever tried to describe your feelings? How would you describe ‘chocolate’ or a baby ‘kitten’ to someone who had never tasted or seen one?

We each spend time almost every day trying to describe things to others. Therefore, this quiz is based on that. To do the quiz, imagine you are on the telephone with a friend and you need to describe things to them. For each of the quiz sentences below, you will be describing what is seen in the picture and then telling your friend what it is – only you will be telling them what it is in Spanish. Are you ready to begin telling them what is it like? Fantastic! Let’s begin! "Hello! What is that like?"

    The children in this picture clearly look happy. The Spanish word for happy is feliz and since there is more than one child, happy, the adjective, needs to be in its plural form, i.e., felices. (Remember the 'z' becomes a 'c' per the rules of making words plural in Spanish.)

    This comes from a famous Christmas song that goes, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" The Spanish word for snow is nieve.
