'They believed that it was a miracle.' Can you translate this Spanish sentence into English?

Writing: English to Spanish (1)

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be getting the opportunity to write sentences going from English to Spanish. What this means is that, once again, you have made it to the writing quizzes. You were first introduced to this series in your Spanish Medium Review writing quizzes. When learning a new language, it is not only important to know how to speak it but it is just as important to know how to write in it. In fact, writing in a new language will help you to learn the language faster than if you were to just speak it.

The brain learns in many ways and the actual physical action that it takes to write provides the brain with greater stimulation. If you were in an actual classroom rather than on a virtual educational site, you would have to be doing lots and lots of writing. Even though you are not in an actual classroom – writing is still required to help you to learn Spanish.

Please have some paper and a pen or pencil handy as you will need to write out each sentence as shown and then translate that sentence into Spanish. After you have translated the sentence – you should then see if it matches any of the given answers. If you are not even close in what you wrote – see where you had trouble such as in the verb form or vocabulary. Revisit the quizzes and/or the helpful material listings, such as the vocabulary listing and verb conjugations, to review and refresh our memory. Then try writing the translation again and then match it up to one of the given answers.

For this quiz, and Part 2 that will follow, you will be translating from English to Spanish. Pay close attention to spelling and verb tenses and, of course, any accent marks. Now, if you have all of your materials with you to write – you may begin the quiz!
