In the Spanish Easy Review All About People quiz you learned some vocabulary words about people in general such as man, woman, child and friend. However, in this Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz you will be reviewing words for specific family members.
To begin with, please pay particular attention to the Spanish word for daddy which is papá. As you can see, the last 'a' has an accent mark. If you do not use the accent mark and write papa in Spanish you will be saying potato! This is just another example of why that little accent mark is so important to use and to remember where to use it. In addition, whereas papá is a masculine word, i.e., el papá, papa is a feminine word, i.e., la papa.
Let’s have a look at my family members.
|English||Spanish||Pronounced (Phonetically) As|
|daddy||(el) papá||pă-păă (There is a stronger emphasis placed on the second 'pa' because of the accent mark.)|
|son||(el) hijo||ē-hō (Notice the 'h' is silent and the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)|
|daughter||(la) hija||ē-hă (Notice the 'h' is silent and the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)|
|brother||(el) hermano||ěr-mă-nō (Notice the 'h' is silent.)|
|sister||(la) hermana||ěr-mă-nă (Notice the 'h' is silent.)|
|cousin (boy)||(el) primo||prē-mō|
|cousin (girl)||(la) prima||prē-mă|
Carefully review each member, the spelling of their name and their pronunciation. When you are ready, move on to the quiz section. There are ten sentences with a family member capitalized. From the answers provided, see if you can find the correct corresponding family member in either Spanish or in English.
