Writing - I Can Write Out the Entire Sentence!

By reaching this quiz, it means that you are getting very close to the end of the road with the Spanish Difficult Review quizzes. In addition, you will no longer have any new vocabulary words to learn from this point forward. It is now time to take all of the words in your Spanish vocabulary bank and start putting them to use. Therefore, in this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be tested on how well you can recognize, and write out, entire sentences using that bank of Spanish words.

Note that this is a writing quiz. That means that you will need some paper and a pen or pencil because part of your task is to write. The actual act of writing helps to stimulate the brain into remembering. Please DO NOT skip the writing part. It will be very beneficial to you. Therefore, read each of the given sentences. They will all be in English. Notice that these sentences are a bit long.

Next, write out the Spanish translation of each sentence onto your paper. When you are done, see if your translation matches one of the four given answers. If it does not, see if you can find the proper translation and then write out the proper translation. If your translation matches perfectly to one of the given answers, choose that answer and then move on to the next sentence. Do not rush through the quiz. Take your time. Pay attention to the sentence structure, the verb context, verb tenses and pronoun forms. If you need to review your verbs and/or vocabulary, check out the helpful lists on vocabulary words and verb conjugations provided on this site. When you are ready, begin writing!
