Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2 – Lessons 6 – 12

Spanish Quiz 2 relates to the 2nd series of lessons

 

Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2 includes exercises from all topics covered in lessons 6 – 12 (or Compilation Nbr. 2). This test has in total 15 questions:

  1. Quiz #2 was very humbling. How do you spell “failure” in Spanish? I’d look it up, but my brain hurts from information overload!

    1. I agree. I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped on my first quiz. I was going to jump ahead and try quiz 2, before finishing the video…. but doesn’t sound like I’d do well. 2 hour learning blocks seems so long. Just a suggestion, for future users / future videos. . . maybe try smaller chunks of information. . . 20 to 40 minutes. Thank you, though! These lessons are very helpful

      1. Hello Christina. Thanks for your feedback. I know the quizzes are not easy. But since they are not intended to pass or fail the course, I’m trying to push students to their limit, in order to help learn more. They purpose is to make students stop to think of all they have learned, and try do their best. And then review the correction to learn and improve. Take it as an exercise, rather than an exam. Because it’s not an exam :-)

  2. Hi Rodrigo… In the second quiz 27 is spelled veintisiete (one word) while 43 is three words, cuarenta y tres. Is single word spelling only among the 20s?

  3. Like some others, I must figure out how to show the accent marks. I was thrown off a little by my low score for quiz 2.

    But, on to new lessons…

    1. Hi Brad. There are 3 ways you can type the tildes into the Spanish Quiz. The most obvious one, of course, is to switch to Spanish keyboard (it’s a simple config on your computer, and then you can toggle between keyboards). The second option is more annoying, but it still work: Try copy-paste the letters: á é í ó ú. And the 3rd one is using the ASCII code.

    1. Hi Adrian. The first years at school we simply need to remember a few words that carry the accent “by heart”. So… we wouldn’t know why one word would carry the accent; but if we didn’t put it, the teacher would correct us. Therefore, I also take that into consideration in the Spanish Quiz. Later, in 5th or 6th grade, I remember we were taught the grammatical rules to really understand when and why a word would carry an accent. If you want to jump into this topic, you can go to lessons 294 – 299. Kind regards.

  4. Hi
    I did the quiz and got many wrong due to wrong keyboard. I will add it and try the quiz again.
    thank you for the Spanish lessons.

      1. Hi Jonseay. Sorry for the delay to reply. I’m currently traveling in China, and I’m my emails are building-up.

        From the Control Panel. There you will have an icon relating to Language or Region settings. There is where you should add the language you want (you wont change your own; you will just add a new one to toggle every time you need it). What Operating System are you using?

  5. Oh no, I just copied those accented letters from a website that allowed me to type spanish characters, but my performance was rated as Cheater.

    1. Lol! :-D Sorry about that! I just took a look at your result of Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2. I did some research and realized that the issue was on my side. I duplicated something that caused that weird result. But I have just fixed it, and it shouldn’t happen again. Thanks for reporting it!

    1. Hi JB. I know it’s a bit annoying for some students to either configure their keyboard for Spanish characters; use the ASCII code to produce the “tildes”, or copy-paste tildes whenever they need them. But that is the same thing Spanish speakers have to do whenever they learn English, and have to type apostrophes and ampersands. If I remove the “tildes” from the Spanish Quiz then my students will not learn and practice them.

    2. Regardless of the Spanish accents, I see you have done well in Spanish Quiz Nbr. 1 and 2. The score is only for you, as a mere reference to improve. If you knew the right answer and simply didn’t score because you couldn’t type the “tilde”, then you are still doing very well in the test.

  6. I am so pleased. I scored the maximum 75 points!
    I realised that the tildes would be needed so I googled and followed the instructions on how to change to a Spanish Keyboard, using the Control panel.
    I am enjoying learning Spanish so much.
    Muchas gracias Rodrigo!!

  7. After going over the lessons again, and not rushing and but paying attention. I am doing much better. I have also been having my spaniard friend talk to me and explain things, so I learning and hoping I continue to get better at this and be able to carry small conversations!

    Thanks!

    1. I’m so glad about that, Germain! Definitely, practice through actual conversation is fundamental to become fluent; and that is an aspect of learning that the course is lacking. So, by adding that I believe you will be covering all the essential aspects to learn and get better.

      I have also taken a look at your Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2 as well as the last Spanish tests you’ve recently finished. You are doing very well. Congratulations!

      Also, by browsing the Spanish Quizzes (the results are sent to me via email as well) I just found an email you sent me a few days ago. I had missed it. I will reply to you right now.¡

  8. What did I get wrong with ( I just don’t have the accents, as i am in United States, and do not know how to do them:

    3. Respecting lower-case and upper-case, as well as punctuation, write down in Spanish:
    Yesterday was Wednesday.
    Ayer fue miercoles.

    The correct answer is: Ayer fue miércoles.

    and

    7. Respecting lower-case and upper-case, as well as the correct punctuation, write down in Spanish:

    How much do you have? (use the informal “you” that was taught in the lessons)
    Cuanto tienes?

    The correct answer is: ¿Cuánto tienes?

    and
    9. Respecting lower-case and upper-case, as well as the correct punctuation, write down in Spanish:

    What is your name? (Use the informal “you” that was taught in the lessons)
    Como te llamas?
    The correct answers could be:

    ¿Cómo te llamas?

    and 13. Using only lower-case letters and NO punctuation marks, write down the Spanish word (verb) that means: there will be (singular)
    habra

    The correct answer is: habrá

    and
    15. Taking in consideration upper- and lower-case, and punctuation marks, write down in Spanish:

    I have to eat.
    Yo tengo que comer.

    The correct answer is: Tengo que comer.

    Sorry for asking so many questions. I ask a lot of questions, when I am learning, so I can correct properly

    1. Hi Germain,

      On Spanish Quiz Nbr. 2: In all those answers the only misspelling was the lack of the Spanish “tilde”. However, despite having been marked as wrong, you were deducted only 1 point from each answer. Instead of getting 5 points you get 4.

      Spanish “tildes” are fundamental for indicating how a word is read or pronounced. Therefore, a misuse or an omission is considered a typo.

      There are 4 grammar rules regarding Spanish “tildes”, and they aren’t usually taught at the beginning of a Spanish course. So, usually people need to remember or memorize which words carry a “tilde”, until the grammar rules are taught. That is even so for native Spanish speakers. I learnt them at school when I was 11, and I believe many people don’t even learn them ever (therefore misspelling their whole life).

      I know it’s annoying to type the “tildes” on your keyboard. But you may have to configure SPA keyboard if you want to do it. Once it is setup (from your control panel) it just takes 2 clicks to switch ENG-SPA keyboard from your taskbar. I also had to find the ” ‘ ” symbol for typing in English.

      But it’s actually not essential. If you simply know where the tilde goes, and you just don’t type it because you can’t find it on your keyboard, then that is fine. You still deserve the points for knowing it. After all, the tests are just for personal reference and improvement.

      As for question Nbr. 15, although “Yo tengo que ir a comer” is perfectly correct, the “yo” is not used because the subject is self-evident through the verb. “Yo” here is a redundancy. However, your answer is still grammatically perfect. So I have just modified the test for it to take that answer as CORRECT in the future.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Rodrigo

      1. thanks for answering, but i have listed a few more questions below. Now that know about tilde i thought the ‘ has to be directly over the a and not like this a’.

        ooh! i didn’t know the days of the week and the months are not upper case in a sentence.

        and if is say he has hunger is it El tienen hambre?
        or he has to eat El tiene que hambre?

        1. Hi Germain,

          In Spanish, only given names (for people, countries, companies, etc) begin with capital. And, of course, beginning of a sentence and acronyms.
          Yes; Spanish tildes go on the vowel: á é í ó ú Á É Í Ó Ú
          For sensations, we say:
          Él tiene hambre. (hunger)
          Él tiene sed. (thirst)
          Él tiene frío. (cold)
          Él tiene calor. (hot)
          Él tiene miedo. (fear)
          You can also say it like this, which is more similar to English, although rather uncommon in Spanish:
          Él está hambriento.
          Él está sediento.
          Él está con frío.
          Él está acalorado.
          Él está temeroso.

          These last sentences are more like in English. However, they are much more uncommon in Spanish. Therefore, it’s better to learn the first way.
