Back in the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned how to say the days of the week and the months of the year. You also learned how to tell the time of the day. Those are each considered measurements of time. As we know, however, time is measured in several other incremental ways. Therefore, in this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be looking at ways to measure time that will go down to the millisecond all the way up to millenniums!
One interesting measurement of time is that of the shadow. Now how is that a measurement? The answer is really very simple because the shadow, when you know how to read it, can tell you pretty closely what time of day it is. It can also tell you the direction of the sun and where it is in the sky. Now isn’t that interesting?! Okay then, let’s take a look at some incremental time measurements. Some of these you are already familiar with so they will be just a review. Others will be brand new.
|flash / sparkle||destello [m]|
|hourglass||reloj de arena [m]|
|season||estación [f] and temporada [f]|
|second||segundo / segunda [m/f]|
|sundial||reloj de sol [m]|
|watch / clock||reloj [m]|
With this list, and your past Spanish vocabulary list, you now should be able to do pretty well on measuring time in Spanish. Do you want to test yourself to see? Okay, this is a quiz after all so let’s see how well you can measure time in Spanish. The quiz section contains ten sentences with a word shown in all capitalized letters. Your task is to locate the correct Spanish time that matches the capitalized word! Now let’s see how much of a flash you can do this in!
