Again, as this is a writing quiz, your task includes writing out your answer. You are training your brain to be able to recognize a new language. In addition, as you write the new language words down, your brain connects images with words. Similarly, as you pronounce your words out loud, the ears begin to easily recognize sounds. Putting writing and hearing together will then actually strengthen the mind’s memory abilities.

Okay, now for your quiz task. Read each quiz sentence and then write down what you believe to be the correct Spanish translation. Then check the four given answers to the sentence to see which translation is correct. If your translation was not correct, write down the correct translation. If your answer is correct, then move on to the next quiz sentence. See just how many you can write correctly the first time!

  1. She dances in the street.
    The Spanish word for street is calle. It is a feminine word. The first answer shows it as a masculine word so it is not a correct translation. The third answer translates as: She dances to (or at) the street. That is not what the given sentence states. The last answer translates as: She dances the street. Again, that is not what the given sentence states. The second answer translates as: She dances in the street.
  2. We cook chicken.
    The Spanish word for we cook is cocinamos. This has been translated correctly in each answer so you now need to know the word for chicken. The Spanish word for chicken is pollo. We cook chicken is translated as: Cocinamos pollo.
  3. Thomas helps the teacher.
    The Spanish word for Thomas is Tomás and it has been translated correctly in each answer. In this sentence you cannot tell if the teacher is a man or a woman. When you do not know the gender you use the masculine form of the word. The first and second answers show the feminine form of the word so they can be eliminated. The third answer shows the Spanish word lo which means it. That word is not part of the given sentence so it is not translated correctly. The last answer translates as: Thomas helps the teacher.
  4. He feels happy!
    The Spanish words for he feels are él siente. Each answer has translated this correctly. That leaves the word happy. The second answer translates as: He feels tired! That is not correct. The third answer translates as: He feels sad! That, too, is not correct. The last answer translates as: He is excited! Again, that is not the correct translation. The first answer does translate as: He is happy!
  5. Taylor comes home tomorrow.
    The name Taylor stays the same in both English and Spanish. The Spanish word for comes (meaning he comes) is viene. This means that the first and last answers can be eliminated as they do not contain the proper translation for comes. The Spanish word for tomorrow is mañana. The first 'n' has a tilde over it. The second answer does not have a tilde over the 'n' making it an incorrect translation. (Note that mañana means both morning and tomorrow. The meaning will be dependent upon the context of the full sentence.) The third answer does show the correct translation of the given sentence. One thing to point out is the use of 'a casa'. The actual translation of the third answer is: Taylor comes to home tomorrow. You will often see the 'a' used in this manner although it can also be written and spoken without it. Just be aware of its usage.
  6. The cats sits on a rock.
    The Spanish word for cat is gato. It is a masculine word. This means that the second and third answers can be eliminated as they show cat as being a feminine word. The Spanish word for rock is roca. It is a feminine word. The third and last answers have shown it as a masculine word which means that they have not translated it correctly. The first answer translates as: The cat sits on a rock.
  7. Water freezes.
    The Spanish word for water is agua. Each answer has translated this correctly. That leaves the word freezes. The first answer translates as: Water whistles. That is not correct. The second answer translates as: Water falls. Again, not the correct translation. The third answer translates as: Water hangs. It is not the correct translation. The last answer translates as: Water freezes.
  8. She speaks of her mother.
    The Spanish words for she speaks are ella habla. Notice that there is no accent mark on the verb. The last answer shows an accent mark which means it is not the correct translation. The first answer translates as: She speaks of mother. In this case, we do not know whose mother she is speaking of. The translation is not the correct translation of the given sentence. The third answer translates as: She speaks her mother. It is a nonsensical sentence and not the correct translation. The second answer translates as: She speaks of her mother. The Spanish possessive pronoun su (her) needs to be in the sentence.
  9. He climbs the tree.
    The Spanish words for he climbs are él escala. The first and second answers have translated the verb as an er verb when it is an ar verb. Therefore, the first and second answers are translated incorrectly. The Spanish word for tree is árbol. It has an accent mark above the letter a. The last answer does not contain the accent mark so it is not the correct translation. The third answer translates as: He climbs the tree.
  10. We drink milk.
    The Spanish word for milk is leche. This has been translated correctly in each answer. The second answer translates as: We take milk. That is not a correct translation. The third answer translates as: We erase milk. Again, that is not a correct translation. The last answer translates as: We sell milk. It is not the correct translation of the given sentence. The first answer translates as: We drink milk.
