Vocabulary - A Smorgasbord of Words (Part 1)

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will be the first of four quizzes designed to randomly test your memory on Spanish vocabulary and your ability to translate from one language to another. You did a very similar series of quizzes that were referred to as smorgasbord quizzes in the Spanish Medium Review quiz series. If you have not already taken the quizzes found in the Spanish Medium Review series, now would be a good time to go check them out as this series of quizzes will be following the same format.

A smorgasbord is a collection of many things that can either be related to each other or not. This quiz will provide you with a mixture of quiz sentences and/or questions. These could be about anything. However, all of the vocabulary words are taken from the Spanish vocabulary bank of words presented to you throughout the Spanish Easy Review, the Spanish Medium Review and the Spanish Difficult Review series.

As this quiz will be throwing a mixture of vocabulary words at you, it will take a great deal of concentration on your part to stay relaxed and let the brain do its work. You have been training it for quite some time now. That means it is ready for this challenge. Just stay focused, remember to think about words and their placement in a sentence, their gender, whether accent marks are involved, whether the verb is in the present tense, past tense, future tense or progressive tense, and whether the words are in the singular form or plural form. It sounds like a lot but – let’s see how much easier it really has all become and how much closer you are to becoming bilingual! Now, let the test begin!
