Spelling - Spelling Baseball - Homerun

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will continue playing baseball. That is, a spelling baseball game, so let’s get a homerun! The tension is getting high at this point in the spelling baseball game. You are in the ninth inning and the bases are loaded. Your challenge is to hit a homerun and bring everyone home and WIN the game! You can do it! All eyes are on you! (No stress here!)

To get to 1st base (see the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Spelling Baseball – 1st Base!) you had to translate 2 words together. To get to 2nd base (see the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Spelling Baseball – 2nd Base!) you had to translate 3 words together and to get to 3rd base (see the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Spelling Baseball – 3rd Base!) you had to translate simple sentences.

Now your task is to translate longer or more challenging sentences. Some sentences will be given in English and some sentences are given in Spanish. You must find the proper translation which means proper spelling, word order, verb tense and gender. To do this you will have to dig deep, focus on the ball and then hit it out of the park!
