How many Spanish words do you know for household furnishings?

Vocabulary - Furnishing a House!

This vocabulary Spanish Easy Review quiz will review the words for furnishings found in a house. Yes, it is yet another vocabulary quiz. The Spanish Easy Review quizzes are chock full of vocabulary words that need to be learned or re-learned before you can really get into learning how to speak in Spanish. With each vocabulary quiz, however, your mind is being stretched and shaped into being able to think in two different languages.

Although there are a lot of words to remember and memorize, with patience, practice, practice and practice, all of these words will become secondary to you. With that in mind, let’s think about taking another shopping trip.

This time we will be shopping for furnishings for a new house. You probably have not had the opportunity to do that yet but this quiz is going to give you that opportunity. Not only that, but you will get the opportunity to do so in Spanish! You will be looking at furniture and household items for each room of the house, i.e., the bedroom, the kitchen, the living room, the office and even the bathroom. Here is your furniture/household shopping list to be on the lookout for!
