Spanish Easy Review Quiz - Grammar - AR Verbs (Group 2) (Questions)

This Spanish Easy Review grammar quiz takes a further look at AR verbs. As you have learned, Spanish, unlike English, has three different kinds of verbs. These are verbs that end in ar, er and ir. The significance of the ending will be made more clear when you start learning how to conjugate the verbs. For this quiz, as well as the Spanish Easy Review quiz titled AR Verbs (Group 1), you will be solely focusing on learning verbs that end in ar. You will be learning or practicing memorizing the base form of ar verbs. The base form is when the word 'to' is placed before the verb such as 'to speak' or 'to laugh'. Some verbs may have an accent mark or a tilde so you will need to pay attention to their spelling as well.

In the AR Verbs (Group 1) quiz you learned and/or practiced the following base verbs: to stop, to end, to finish, to love, to bat, to hit, to kiss, to walk, to sing, to buy, to climb, to study, to like, to speak and to call. Now let’s add to the list of ar verbs as follows:

English Spanish Pronounced (Phonetically) As:
to help ayudar ă-yū-dăr
to dance bailar bī-lăr
to erase borrar bŏ-rrăr (The double 'r' is rolled with the tongue.)
to cook cocinar cō-cē-năr
to cut cortar cŏr-tăr
to leave dejar dā-hăr (Notice that the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)
to sue demandar dā-măn-dăr
to be estar ā-stăr
to wash lavar lă-văr
to clean limpiar lēmp-ē-ăr
to swim nadar nă-dăr
to pay pagar pă-găr
to take tomar tō-măr
to work trabajar tră-bă-hăr (Notice that the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)

To become very familiar with each of these verbs, practice saying each one over and over again until you feel comfortable with them and their pronunciation. When you are comfortable, move on to the quiz section.

Before moving on to the quiz we would like to make a note regarding the verb for leave, i.e., dejar. Note that when using this verb, the leave being referred to is in the context of leaving an item somewhere such as leaving your gloves on the table. Later on you will learn another Spanish verb that also means leave but it refers to things left behind such as I left my grandfather at the train station. They seem very similar but they do each have their own context. A new learner of the Spanish language will often use dejar in all contexts. A native speaker will definitely understand what you are saying but will also probably smile at the wrong context. Just be aware of this little tidbit of fact for when you are introduced to the other leave verb. Now, let's move on down to take the quiz.

There are ten sentences that each have a base verb capitalized. From the answers given, see if you can locate the correct corresponding verb without having to look back at this introduction.
