Spelling - Spelling Baseball - 2nd Base

This is the second Spanish Easy Review quiz in a series of four that has been designed to test your Spanish spelling capabilities.

Spelling correctly in any language is extremely important and when that language includes accent marks, you reach a new level of importance as that little mark makes a huge difference in a word and its meaning. It is also important to realize and be aware of the gender of a word as Spanish words can either be masculine or feminine. In the Spanish Easy Review spelling quiz titled Spelling Baseball - 1st Base, there was a series of ten simple words that needed to be spelled correctly in Spanish.

In this quiz, Spelling Baseball - 2nd Base, there is a series of ten more complex words that will need to be spelled in Spanish. Look at each word carefully before choosing an answer. Some of them may seem very close and, unless you really know how to spell it, you could get tripped up. If you do have any difficulty with any of the words, check back to the Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quizzes that will help you to remember not only their correct spelling but how they are phonetically pronounced. Now, let’s begin the Spelling Baseball - 2nd Base quiz!
