Learn how to say 'trick or treat' in Spanish - and how to spell it.

Spelling - Spelling Baseball - 2nd Base

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will continue playing baseball. That is, a spelling baseball game, so let’s get to 2nd base! As you learned in the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Spelling Baseball – 1st Base!, this subseries of quizzes has been designed to test you on your Spanish vocabulary and your understanding of Spanish word placement or order. Of course, to test you – why not have a little fun with a game of spelling baseball.

There are four bases in the baseball game, i.e., 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base and home plate. You can quickly get around all the bases if you hit a homerun! That means that each quiz is a little more difficult than the one that preceeded it.

In the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Spelling Baseball – 1st Base!, you were given two words to translate with correct words, spelling and placement. Now, in Spelling Baseball – 2nd Base! you will be given three words. Again, it is very important that you pay very close attention to the spelling of each word, the placement of each word, the tense and the gender. Now, do you believe that you are you up for the challenge? Then let’s make that ball fly!
