Down Your Way
Do you live in a city or in the countryside? Can you answer the question in Spanish? This quiz is all about words for describing places.

Down Your Way

This Spanish Easy Review picture quiz will help you remember a few Spanish words that will describe some things down your way. After all, every town you go to, every city, every state and every country has its own uniqueness to it. Perhaps it’s where the shopping is. One place could have a huge indoor mall while another has an outdoor marketplace. Other places have little quaint shops.

Sometimes it’s the kind of food a place has to offer or the kind of clothes people wear. I don’t believe that you would find a young girl in high-heeled shoes running around a farm but you might see one in New York City or London or Paris. Sometimes it’s the sounds and colors that remind us of certain places. Whatever those special things are, they provide us all with memories! So, what are some of the things found down your way?

Is there anything unique to your area? How would you like to tell someone what this is in Spanish? You probably can tell them a lot of things about your area now! Therefore, in this quiz, we are going to look at some things that are or can be related to places – places that may be down your way!

With that in mind, take a close look at each of the following quiz sentences and see if you can locate the Spanish word that relates to the capitalized word in the sentence. Also, please take some time to think about the place itself. These beautiful pictures will help you to do just that!

Of the four answers given here, you have only learned one so that should make the answer easier to find. The first answer means alley. The second answer means road. The last answer means freeway. The third answer means street and it is the Spanish word that you know and that you are looking for here.
5.
Can you see the palm TREES?
tallos
capullos
botánicas
árboles
The Spanish word for trees is árboles. Because the accent mark is on the first syllable, it remains.

San Francisco is famous for its TROLLEYS!
tranvías
camiones
trenes
motocicletas
The Spanish word for trolley is tranvías. In this sentence you are looking for the plural form of the word. At first thought you might believe it to be tranvias but that would not be correct. Only when the accent mark is on the last syllable is it dropped in the plural form of the word. The word is pronounced trăn-vē-ă meaning the accent mark is on the second syllable. Therefore it is not dropped. The Spanish word for trolleys is then tranvías.
10.
In some places people HANG their clothes up on outdoor clotheslines.
barren
esperan
ganan
cuelgan
You are looking for a verb here so the first thing you need to do is determine the proper pronoun for people. That would be ‘they’. The first answer means they sweep. The second answer means they hope. The third answer means they win and the last answer means they hang.
