How did the old man feel about his cat? Find out in this Spanish reading comprehension quiz.

Reading Comprehension: I Can Read Spanish!  (Quiz 2)

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will be your second challenge on reading comprehension to see just how well you have learned Spanish. As you have been informed in many of the previous quizzes, before anyone can become fluent in another language, they have to be able to think in that language. In other words, when you see the word 'silla' you should immediately be able to envision a chair in your brain without having to translate silla to chair. It does take a while to be able to do this but the more you practice the quicker your brain will be able to think in two (or more) languages. Being able to think and comprehend in Spanish becomes a must, especially if it is your goal to one day be fluent in the language and/or if you want to have an easy flowing conversation with someone in their native tongue of Spanish.

This quiz, as well as the Spanish Difficult Review quizzes titled Reading Comprehension: I Can Read Spanish! (Quiz 1) through Reading Comprehension: I Can Read Spanish! (Quiz 5) have been designed to train the brain towards the goal of thinking and comprehending in Spanish. This quiz, i.e., Quiz 2, will work exactly as Quiz 1 did. If you have not already taken Quiz 1 of the series, please do so now.

In Quiz 1 you were shown a couple of short paragraphs that were completely in Spanish. You were then asked questions about the paragraphs in English and you had to find the Answers to the questions in English. So too will this quiz go. Therefore, carefully read the following Spanish paragraphs (you know all of the words) and then read the quiz questions and locate the correct English Answers!

Allí vivió un hombre viejo en la playa de un gran océano. Cada día él hizo tablas de surfear. Él gustó coger pez en la mañana. Él poseyó un perro pequeño y un gato gris feo. El nombre del perro fue Búfalo y el nombre del gato fue Tigre.

El perro fue amistoso, pero el gato fue malo. El gato robó los peces del hombre viejo cuando él no estuvo mirando. Aún, el hombre viejo amó a su gato. El perro y el gato fueron su familia. La familia quedó junta..
