A Bit of Culture

In short – culture is timeless. That is especially true with the culture of fine arts.

  4. This is from the OPERA Madam Butterfly.
    The Spanish word for opera is ópera. The only difference between English and Spanish is the accent mark above the 'o'.
  5. She is a great ____ who plays a guitar.
    The first answer means musician (female). The second answer means drummer. The third answer means juggler and the last answer means musician (male). The second and third answers can easily be dismissed. As the sentence and picture show a 'she', the female version of the word needs to be used making the missing word be música.
  6. This patio is decorated in a ____ style.
    The first answer means Renaissance. The second answer means contemporary. The third answer means comedy and the last answer means modern. You can now quickly eliminate the third answer. You really need to know a little about decorating styles to get this correct but it is easy to tell that it is not the Renaissance style. Think of King Henry VIII for that style. That leaves contemporary and modern. Contemporary has soft lines and more subdued colors whereas modern has straight lines and bold colors and patterns. Looking at the picture there are more straight lines in the furnishings and bold colors and patterns in the furnishings. Therefore, this is a modern designed patio.

    The Spanish words for concert hall are sala de concierto.

    The first answer means hymns. The second answer means books. The third answer means hands and the last answer means hollies.

Therefore, himnos is in the plural form.
