This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will be a fun one as we journey out for a night on Broadway! When you think of Broadway you generally think of New York City, plays, musicals, lights, crowds, fun and magic. Indeed, attending a play on Broadway is like being transported to a different time, a different place and where all things are possible! Of course, you don’t have to actually go to Broadway in New York City to experience this. It can be experienced in cities and towns all around the world such as London and Paris. Even your own hometown can provide this exciting adventure. In fact, many schools do. If you haven’t experienced the magic yet – you really need to because it is more than just wonderful.
What makes the Broadway experience even more exciting now is that you will soon be able to relate things with it in two different languages. To do that, you need to learn another set of vocabulary words. So, before going out on a night to Broadway, let’s see what words we can find.
|emcee||presentador / presentadora [m/f]|
|musical||musical [m/f] (spelled the same for both masculine and feminine, only the definite article will reflect the gender)|
|understudy||suplente [m/f] (spelled the same for both masculine and feminine, only the definite article will reflect the gender)|
Well that seems like a good list to get you started on your night on Broadway! Did you notice the two words that are both used for intermission? Be on the lookout for how the native speakers say it if you are visiting their country.
Another thing to note here is the Spanish word for 'encore'. Notice that it contains a beginning and ending exclamation mark, i.e, ¡otra! As this is something that is usually shouted out by the audience or is used to show great appreciation, the exclamation marks should always be used. Without the exclamation marks you would be saying 'other' or 'another'.
Now it is time for your performance. That is, your performance with the quiz below. As you will see, the quiz contains ten questions and you need to answer the question in Spanish. So, let’s see if you can get an award for a great Broadway score!
