Vocabulary - At the Flower Shop!

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be looking at a bouquet of beautiful flowers that are found at the flower shop. Flowers are part of so many different occasions in life. They signify love, sorrow and happiness. They are used at births, parties, weddings, anniversaries, holidays and even deaths.

When you cannot say what you are feeling with words, flowers can say it for you. Because they are so important, it is important to know how to talk about flowers in your new language of Spanish. Many of the floral names are similar in both languages but some can be quite different so they will require a little more time to remember them and their spellings. Although there are hundreds of different flowers throughout the world, this quiz will focus only on the more popular flowers. Now, let’s see what those flowers are.
