Vocabulary - You Live Where?

Back in the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned that a 'house' in Spanish is a 'casa'. Many people do live in a house but not everyone does. In fact, there are a number of places where people can and do live. They not only live in building structures but they also live in particular areas like in a town or a city. With that in mind, this Spanish Medium Review quiz we will be taking a look at the many places a person can live.

How many places can you think of? Let’s see if the list below covered all the places that came to your mind. Are you ready? Then here is your list.

As with many lists, this is a good listing of places one can live! Some of the words might be a little tricky so take your time saying each word, pronouncing each word and learning how to spell each word. When you go through your neighborhood and town, see how many of these places you can find. The igloo might be the hardest – unless you build one in the wintertime! Train your brain to immediately be able to recognize a park as a parque and a shed as a cobertizo and so on. Work that brain every day with your new language skills! Before you head out to find them, however, you do need to take the quiz.

Yup – you are not through here until the quiz is done. So take a look at the following ten sentences and/or questions and see how many you can get correct without peeking back at the vocabulary list. If the sentence contains a capitalized word, you need to find the Spanish translation of that word.
