As the Blog Zone is still very much in its infancy, I realise it's not overly clear how to access the Adjectives Quiz. Currently it's accessible by pressing the blue button found at the top of the Blog Zone or by pressing the button at the end of this post.
Let’s take a moment and go over the Quiz Engine and how to get the best from it. Currently there are around 450 Spanish Adjectives stored within the Quiz Engine. This number will grow in time, but already we have access to some of the most common and useful adjectives.
An adjective is a word that describes something. Usually in combination with nouns, adjectives are what make language rich and more descriptive. The following underlined words are examples of adjectives: A big
house, a blue
door, a lucky
lady, a tall
man, a happy
The Quiz Engine is a multiple choice learning aid, whereby you will be asked to select a correct answer from one of four options. The questions are completely random at this stage and there is no difficulty setting. Currently this is suitable for all abilities. Later, as more words are added more functionality will also appear. Adding difficulty levels, filters for groups of words or topics and so on.
If you’re just starting out, the Quiz will give you some exposure to some new vocabulary in a more fun way, without feeling like a long lesson. Equally, if you’re a more experienced learner, having a fast paced learning aid is the perfect way to brush up on your knowledge.
At times, you will be presented with Spanish words that are identical or similar to that of the English. This may seem somewhat pointless, or hardly challenging as a Quiz Question. Yet we are always learning. This is the perfect time for beginners to practice saying the words out loud and perfect that Spanish accent and word stress we discussed in the last 2 blog entries. Remember: just because it’s spelt like the English, the chances are it’s not said like the English. If you see a word that’s spelt the same, don’t just ignore it, use it as a chance to make those 2 rules of word emphasis to become second nature.
