Can you write these Spanish sentences in English?

Writing - Spanish to English (2)

This quiz will be the last writing quiz in the academic series of Spanish Easy Review quizzes. You can breathe a sigh of relief! Still, there are ten more sentences that you will need to tackle first before it is over. Therefore, this writing Spanish Easy Review quiz is the second quiz that will have you practicing how to translate and write from Spanish to English.

As you did in the sister quiz, i.e., Writing: Spanish to English (1) and the two reverse quizzes Writing: English to Spanish (1) and Writing: English to Spanish (2), your task is to actually take the time to write down your Spanish sentences and/or the English translation of a given Spanish sentence.

The process of writing triggers the brain to do some serious memorization work that you will then later be able to call upon. This is really crucial in any subject but especially so when learning a whole new language.

Okay, now it is time to start the quiz. If you have not taken the sister quiz or the reverse quizzes mentioned above, please do so now as each of those quizzes will help you to understand what you need to do here. You will need some paper and a pen or pencil because, again, your task is to not only find the correct answers in the quiz, but to write as well. So if you are ready, then begin the quiz now!
