Do you know what smorgasbord means? It means a varied collection. In other words, a collection of many things that can be related or unrelated. Between the Spanish Easy Review quiz series and the Spanish Medium Review quiz series you have been learning or relearning a mountain full of new Spanish vocabulary words. Each vocabulary quiz in the two series provided you with a list of words that you were then tested on. Since the words were included in the introductions to the quizzes, that made knowing the words found in those quizzes a little easier. Although those quizzes did test your memory, they did not completely challenge you. Therefore, this Spanish Medium Review quiz will challenge you on being able to quickly draw upon the words in your Spanish vocabulary bank, especially since here, you have no idea what words you will be required to know.
In order to increase your challenge, a subseries of four smorgasbord quizzes have been created. There will be no new or old vocabulary words provided to you. Rather, you will have a mixture of quiz sentences and/or questions that you will be given or asked. They could be about anything so you will really have to focus on what you are being shown. For example, if a word is capitalized, you will need to find the matching translation to that word; if you have an entire sentence in English, you will need to find that entire sentence in Spanish and visa-versa. You may need to find the correct present or past tense form of a verb or include the correct article. Watch out for words that may need to be made singular or plural. Again, this requires you to have your Spanish thinking caps securely on.
Do not let this challenge frighten you. You will more than likely do a lot better than you currently realize. Still, these smorgasbord quizzes will be a good sounding board to see where you need more practice and where you are doing pretty well. In addition, do not worry too much about your score. If it is low, again, it should help you understand where you need to go back and study some more. After that, come back and retake these quizzes and see how much you are able to improve on them. Most of all, just relax and try to remember that learning a new language can be fun and that you really have all the time you need to master it! Now, let’s begin with Part 1 of this smorgasbord subseries.
