Food glorious food! We’re anxious to try it. Three banquets a day – our favorite diet! Have you ever heard this before? It comes from a song called Food Glorious Food that was sung in the musical play of Oliver. It was written by Lionel Bart.

So, for this quiz, you will be having a review of many different foods and how they are spoken in Spanish. When you are at home or in a restaurant, you should try to see how many foods you can name in Spanish. That will be a great help in learning a new language! Now let’s have a look at a listing of some of those glorious foods!
|water||agua [m]||ă-gwă (here the word ends with the letter a but is a masculine word)|
|rice||arroz [m]||ă-rrōze (roll the double rr with your tongue)|
Practice saying each word along with the spelling. In addition, pay close attention to whether the word is a masculine word or a feminine word. As you can see, the Spanish word for water is agua. Most Spanish words that end in the letter a are feminine but this is one of the exception words. Because it is an exception word, you will have to memorize its gender to use it correctly. If you were ever to say la agua it would be wrong. It must be said as el agua.
