This Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz takes a look at emotions, feelings and behaviors. It is human nature to feel all kinds of different emotions and we often act upon those emotions. Our actions reflect our behavior. We can be happy, sad, lonely, excited, angry, grateful and on and on. We know how to express these feelings in English so now it is time to start learning how to express those emotions in Spanish. There is a long list of emotions and behaviors but for now, we’ll focus on a select few. One thing to remember is that emotions and feelings are often used as either adjectives or verbs.
In this quiz, they will be used solely as adjectives. Remember, as an adjective, the word will take on either a masculine form or a feminine form depending upon the noun it will be associated with. There are always exceptions to the rule which you will see in the list. Now, your new Spanish vocabulary list that expresses emotions is as follows.
