This Spanish Medium Review quiz will take you on a quick overview of Spanish dialects. During the Spanish Easy Review quiz series, and more specifically in the quiz titled ¡Bienvenido! Welcome to Spanish Easy Review and Its Alphabet, you learned that Spanish has several different dialects. In fact, there are 10 different Spanish dialects.
In the series of quizzes presented here on this site, the Latin American dialect has and is being used. At times the quizzes will point out how a word may be pronounced differently in a different Spanish dialect but there will not be much emphasis placed on teaching you this. However, to make certain that you are aware that words may be pronounced differently in different countries and in different regions within a country (as well as spelled differently), just as English can be pronounced differently in different regions in the United States, as well as in different regions of the United Kingdom, this quiz has been set up to highlight the different Spanish dialects that you might come across in your worldly travels.
Most of those differences are directly related to other languages that have influenced the Spanish spoken in a particular region or area.
There is some good news to remember and that is that nearly all native speaking Spanish people will be able to understand you no matter which dialect you may use. However, you might get a smile or two from them at your pronunciations. We tend to do the same thing with people who speak our own native tongue. Now, to help you understand the different dialects, let’s take a closer look at each one.
Okay, you now have the ten most widely spoken Spanish dialects. Luckily, you only have to learn the one (Latin American)! Still, it is always a good thing to be aware of the different dialects, especially if you are travelling to one of the areas mentioned. If you do, then you can be better prepared to understand the native speakers.
Okay, it is time to move on to the quiz section. The questions have been set up to see how well you can remember the different dialects. Read them over carefully and from the answers provided, see if you can find the correct dialect.
