Vocabulary - What's My Line?

Many years ago there used to be a television series called What’s My Line. In the show a panel of famous people were introduced to a mystery guest. The panel had to see if they could determine what kind of work the mystery person did by asking the guest a series of questions. So, What’s My Line, or this Spanish Difficult Review quiz, will be about a person’s occupational career.

Both the Spanish Easy Review and the Spanish Medium Review quiz series contained occupational vocabulary quizzes so this will be just a continuation of those. Therefore, let’s take a look at adding the following occupations to your occupational vocabulary bank of words.

OCCUPATIONS

ENGLISH SPANISH
accountant contador / contadora [m/f]
archaeologist arqueólogo / arqueóloga [m/f]
athlete atleta (same for both male and female)
butler mayordomo [m]
captain capitán [m] / capitana [f] (note that there is no accent mark in the feminine form)
carpenter carpintero / carpintera [m/f]
clerk oficinista [m] (same for both male or female)
electrician electricista [m] (same for both male or female)
florist florista [m] (same for both male or female)
guitarist guitarrista [m] (same for both male or female)
journalist cronista [m] (same for both male or female)
landlord / landlady dueño / dueña [m/f]

prisoner prisionero / prisionera [m/f]

writer escritor / escritora [m/f]

Okay, now it is onto the quiz section. Each quiz sentence will describe an occupation. However, not all of the occupations may come from the list of occupations found in the introduction shown above. That’s what will make this quiz just a bit more challenging. In fact, a quiz item might require you to remember the name of an occupation learned in either Spanish Easy Review or Spanish Medium Review. Are you up for this challenge? Then let’s see what line it is!
