Exactly how well did you pay attention in your high school Spanish class? Were you more concerned with choosing the best Spanish name, or gazing across the room at the captain of the football team? Or were you actually learning the importance of properly placed accents? We're about to find out!
This quiz will quickly reveal that one accent can make all the difference in the meaning of a word. For instance, did you know that the word "qué” means “what?” But takeaway the accent mark and the word “que” simply means “that”! Most people think that “mas” means “more” but it actually means “but”! Mas with the accent, as in más, means “more”! Talk about attention to detail - forgetting or misplacing just one accent could change the whole meaning of a sentence! Here’s another example worth noting: do you know the difference between “mi” and “mí”? Mi is “my” and mí is “me”! Oh me, oh my, you better get these right!
So let’s see how well you do. It’s time to take the ultimate Spanish language spelling challenge. Are you master enough of the language to detect the correct accents on these words? The tildes and accents await you! On your “mark,” get set, vamonos!
