Vocabulary - A Visit to the Playground!

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz we will be visiting a playground to see what we can find there. Do you like to go to the playground? They are great places for having fun. They are also great places to get some exercising in and to socialize with friends. That’s why nearly all schools have a playground or play yard for children. High schools like to call them tracks and fields. However you call them, they are a part of everyone’s lives at one time or another throughout life. Being such a huge part of life, it only makes sense to learn some of the items that are associated with a playground as they appear in Spanish. So, on that note, let’s look at playground finds.

Depending on which Spanish speaking country you are in, or even a region within a Spanish speaking country, you might hear 'restroom' referred to as being the 'aseo' or the 'baños públicos' (restrooms / public bathrooms).

Okay then, the list above isn't all that long so be sure to say each word out loud so you can hear how each one sounds. Focus on their spelling as well. When you have the words down, proceed to the quiz section. The quiz will be a mixture of capitalized words, blank words and questions to be answered. The only thing consistent with each problem is that the answer will be in Spanish. So, if you are ready, let’s go and visit the playground!
