Vocabulary - Up in the Mountains!

Are you a water person or a mountain person? It seems that people are generally one or the other but very rarely are they both. If you are a mountain person, then this Spanish Medium Review quiz is going to be right up your alley because it will be taking a look at things that you might see or find up in the mountains.

One thing that you should always remember is that when you get a new vocabulary list, you should be trying to name things around you using your new words. If you do not live near the mountains or you are not going to visit any mountain soon, there are still plenty of words here that you can practice using every day. In fact, if you remember way back in the Spanish Easy Review quiz series, you were instructed that you are trying to train your brain to remember a new language. So even in your off times from your studies, you should still be trying to use your new words.
