Vocabulary - Keep Them Coming!

This Spanish Medium Review quiz will be introducing you to a variety of random vocabulary words. In other words, keep them coming! Most of the quizzes that you have had in both the Spanish Easy Review and the Spanish Medium Review quiz series have centered around specific topics that have included vocabulary words that are directly related to that topic such as foods, fruits, furniture, at the beach, at a parade, buildings, modes of transportation, animals and so on. You are being drowned in new vocabulary words. In this drowning, however, there are still many, many more words that you have not been introduced to. Let’s face it, there are millions of words to learn. (Okay, only about 20,000 if you want to get technical.) All the same, as you know from learning your own language and as you are now learning Spanish, you will find that learning new words is an ongoing process throughout your life.

Although the series of Spanish quizzes found on this site cannot possibly introduce you to every word, it will provide you with as many words as possible so that you can communicate quite well by the time you complete the Spanish Difficult Review series. Therefore, this quiz, and the Spanish Medium Review quiz titled Vocabulary: Catch Me if You Can! is going to keep the words coming so you can add them to your ever growing vocabulary word bank! You may recognize a couple, however, as you have had them before. Now, let’s have a look at the following vocabulary words.
