Around the World 1
See if you know the Spanish names for some of the different places around the world.

Around the World 1

In this Spanish Difficult Review picture quiz you will be traveling around the world to visit some amazing places! Have you ever seen or heard of the novel Around the World in Eighty Days? It was written back in 1873 by Jules Verne. It later was adapted to several plays and even a movie. The simple quest was to see if a person could, in fact, travel around the world in 80 days (mind you this was before commercial airlines).

Again, as stated above, for this quick picture quiz, as well as its sister quiz Around the World 2, you are going to have the opportunity to travel around the world. Luckily you will not have to visit 80 places but you will have to visit many. Some of the places you might be very familiar with while others you might not even be aware of. This world has a lot to offer us no matter where we live so now let’s take a journey to places we might have never been to before!

As many places in the world have the same or very close to the same name in both English and Spanish, you will have to focus on spelling, especially the Spanish spelling of many places. Remember, little accent marks and tildes can make a huge difference in the meaning of the word. Each quiz sentence has an all capitalized word that must be matched up to the correct Spanish translation. Take a moment to look at the pictures and see if you can envision yourself being there! Bon voyage!
