Vocabulary - A Smorgasbord of Words! (Part 4)

This Spanish Medium Review quiz will present you with some word trivia. In other words, a smorgasbord of words. At least by making it to this quiz, which is the fourth and last quiz in the smorgasbord of words quiz series, you are seeing the end in sight! Well, that is for now as you still have a long way to go towards learning Spanish and, hopefully, one day even becoming fluent in Spanish.

As you have been hopefully following along with this mini-subseries of smorgasbord quizzes, you should be well versed in how they work. Each one has been designed to help pull out information stored in your head as to Spanish vocabulary words, spelling, gender, conjugation and even a few rules here and there. There’s a lot of information hidden in that brain of yours.

At this point, all of the information you have acquired is still new, sometime a little confusing, and definitely not quite comfortable to you yet. Certainly not like English is. The good news is that if you stick with learning Spanish and you practice, practice, practice, you will reach that same comfortable level that you now have with your native tongue. This challenging subseries has been giving you a little push to reach that level of being comfortable. So now let’s look at what this quiz has to offer.

As you found in the three previous quizzes, the quiz questions and/or sentences can be about anything having to do with Spanish. That includes translating a single word or group of words either from English to Spanish or from Spanish to English. It could involve you digging into the recess of your mind to find a word that will answer a question. Some sentences may even require you to swap words that mean the opposite thing. Your brain is really going to have to work to determine just what it is that you need to do. The four given answers will help you to make that determination. Now, if you are up to the challenge, you may begin the quiz!

  3. This Zodiac sign is represented by an Archer.

  4. Mother was SAD when Daddy came home from the war.
    By looking at the answers to this sentence you can tell that you need to find the opposite word for sad. The opposite of sad is happy. The Spanish word for happy is feliz.
  5. Call the hospital.
    For this problem you are required to find the negative form and translation of the sentence. Remember that a command is being given and when a command is given, the base form of the verb is used. In order to translate this sentence correctly, you need to know the Spanish verb for call. That word is llamar. The correct negative translation is: No llamar el hospital.
  6. This layer of the Earth creates the Earth’s magnetic field
    Iron is an important metal needed to create a magnetic field and the Earth’s core is made up mostly of iron. Therefore, it is the core that creates the Earth’s magnetic field, i.e., núcleo in Spanish.
  7. This is the Earth’s only natural satellite.
    The Earth’s only natural satellite is the moon. The Spanish word for moon is luna.
  8. When the singular form of a noun ends in the letter Z, what, if anything, happens to the Z when the word is made plural?
    When the singular form of a noun ends in the letter Z, the z is changed to a C and ES is added to make the word plural.
  9. She has a pretty smile!
    Remember that in Spanish when using either the question mark or the exclamation point, there must be a mark at the beginning of the sentence and at the end of the sentence. The beginning mark is upside down. The second and third answers only contain one punctuation mark at the end of the sentence making them grammatically incorrect. Next, you need to know the word for smile. The Spanish word for smile is sonrisa. This means that the correct translation is: ¡Ella tiene una bonita sonrisa!
  10. Which of the following is not a member of the family?
    The first answer means grandmother. The second answer means cousin. The third answer means niece and the last answer means nurse. The only one that is not a member of the family is the nurse.
