Are you looking forward to being able to drive or, if you already drive, is there a type of vehicle that you would love to learn how to drive? Driving is one privilege that just about everyone will get a chance to do at one time or another during their life. It is important to remember, however, that it is a privilege so you need to take that privilege seriously. With that in mind, this Spanish Medium Review quiz will be taking a look at various modes of transportation and items associated with those modes.
Being able to drive can be quite fun and it is, in many instances, an absolute necessity. There are many factors related to driving that everyone should also know such as how to put gas into the vehicle’s tank or when to have the vehicle serviced for an oil change or for safety issues.
If you are in a foreign country and you need transportation assistance, it would be a very helpful ability to be able to communicate your transportation needs in that language. Specifically speaking here, we are naturally referring to being able to communicate in Spanish.
In the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned about a few different modes of transportation such as coche for car and camión for truck. Now in this Spanish Medium Review series it is time to learn a few other modes of transportation, as well as other factors that involve a vehicle’s needs and maintenance issues. Then there is that little thing called a ticket. That can be a good thing – like a ticket to board an airplane – or a bad thing - like getting a speeding ticket. You want to avoid the latter of those. So to help you on your journey to being able to communicate transportation modes, let’s look at the following new Spanish vocabulary list.
|bumper / fender||defensa [f]|
|hearse||coche fúnebre [m]|
|hood / bonnet||capota [f]|
|hot air balloon||globo de aire caliente [m]|
|jet||jet [m] (note that the J sounds like an H)|
|spaceship||nave especial [f]|
|taxi / cab||taxi [m]|
A few of these words can be a little tricky so take as much time as you need to really study each Spanish word, its spelling and how the word should be pronounced. When you start to feel really comfortable with the words, move on to the quiz section. There are ten sentences, some in English and some in Spanish. Each sentence has a word that has been shown in all capitalized letters. From the answers provided, locate the correct Spanish translation of the capitalized mode of transportation.
