Language - It is Just the Opposite!
Sad is the opposite of happy. How would you say sad if you were speaking Spanish?

Language - It is Just the Opposite!

In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will once again be looking at words that are opposite of each other. In fact, this quiz is a sister quiz to the Spanish Medium Review quiz titled Language: Opposites Attract!. The only difference between these two quizzes is that in the previous quiz you were given a list of opposite words. Here there is no list. Rather, the quiz below contains ten sentences with one word that will be shown in all capitalized letters. You will need to find the word that is the opposite of the capitalized word. This means that you will have to draw upon your memory bank of Spanish words.

As an example of what you will need to do, if the sentence reads: He must SIT for one hour. You will need to determine what the opposite of SIT is. It would be STAND. The new sentence would then read: He must STAND for one hour.

Take your time and think about the words before you choose an answer. Some answers might mean the same thing or be a totally different thing. That means you will need to concentrate. Now, if you think you are ready, then begin – ahh end – no begin the quiz!
