What kind of music do you like? Rock, rock and roll, country, jazz, classical, modern, rap, hip hop? Whatever music you like, the world would not have very much melodic music without musical instruments. Of course, some voices can sound quite beautiful and are instruments on their own. All the same, instruments really create the music and the mood. Therefore, for this Spanish Medium Review quiz we are going to be looking at musical instruments. More accurately, we will be looking at their Spanish names as music transcends from one language to another.
Now let us take a look at several musical instruments. Do you play any of these or would you like to learn to play any of them? We cannot teach you how to play them here but we can teach you how to say them by their Spanish names! Are you ready then? Here is your list.
|banjo||banjo [m] (in Spanish the J sounds like H)|
|French horn||trompa de llaves [f]|
|violin||violín [m] (note that it is the same as fiddle)|
As a little side note, instruments can have a number of different names in Spanish. For example, you learned above that tambourine was pandero [m]. However, it can also be called a pandereta [f]. Just something to be aware of although you will not be required to know all of the possible different names here. In any Spanish country they will understand the word you have learned in this quiz.
Did you know if you practice your Spanish words with soft music in the background you will be able to remember the new words more easily? It is how you learn the words to a new song without even trying to learn them. The music soothes you so that your brain can function more quickly. Why not try it. Study your Spanish vocabulary words without soft music in the background and then study them with the music. Do you see a difference? Remember, it must be soft music, not all out rock. Rock music is fun, just not for studying. Okay, now it is time to move on to the quiz and start using our new Spanish musical instrument vocabulary words!
