¡Lo sentimos! You did not pass level A2.
You only answered 0 questions out of 10 correctly. You needed to answer 8 questions correctly in order to pass the test.
Take a look at the answers:
- Question 1: (A) Voy a: In Spanish, the preposition A indicates movement when used with verbs such as IR. IR CON expresses going with someone (ex. Al cine siempre voy con mi amigo Manolo); IR EN is used with modes of transportation (ex. Voy en metro a trabajar); IR POR is used when referring to the place through which the action takes place (ex. Nunca voy por el parque cuando es de noche porque me da miedo, entonces voy por la avenida).
- Question 2: (HE IDO) The pretérito perfecto (present perfect) is used here instead of the pretérito indefinido (past simple) because a period of time is being referred to that has not been completed and which bears some relation to the present (este año). The imperfecto is used to talk about habitual actions in the past or as a frame during which another simultaneous action occurs (ex. Antes siempre íbamos a la playa / Cuando iba a la playa tuvo un accidente de tráfico).
- Question 3: (COMO) Conjunción causal (causal conjunction). Using COMO introduces the cause in the beginning of the sentence. If we placed it after the cause we would use the word "porque". PORQUE is used at the beginning of a sentence when responding to a direct question. When we use COMO in the middle of a sentence, its meaning is modal (ex. Por favor, prepárame un té como tú sabes).
- Question 4: (HABÍA) We use the pretérito imperfect (imperfect) here because we're talking about a description in the past, which means we can't use the indefinido. Just as there is no plural form of this verb in the present tense (HAY), the plural doesn't exist in this tense either. The perfecto HA HABIDO cannot be used here either because we're not referring to an unfinished action in the past or one that is in some way related to the present.
- Question 5: (CUÁL) CUÁL + VERB is used with decisions between things or objects of the same type (two problems of the same type). QUÉ + VERB is used with decisions between things or objects of different types.
- Question 6: (TAN ___ COMO) This is a structure used for comparisons of equality. Other structures for making comparisons of equality in Spanish are "TAN + ADJETIVO/ADVERBIO + COMO" y "TANTO COMO + VERBO".
- Question 7: (PASÉ) The structure "PASAR EL TIEMPO BIEN/MAL" (fenomenol is an adverb that suggests that something is very positive, like the adverb estupendamente and the expression muy bien). We use the indefinido here because we're talking about a time and an action that were completed in the past. The perfecto and the indefinido can also both be used to evaluate an event as a whole (ex. La comida ha sido fantástica / La fiesta del sábado fue un desastre).
- Question 8: (ENCONTRABA) We use the pretérito imperfeco (imperfect) here because we're describing something that happened in the past repeatedly and habitually. Also, LA GENTE is always a singular noun in Spanish.
- Question 9: (VOLVERÉ)The future imperfect (simple future) is used to talk about an action in the future that we're not completely sure will take place. To express more certainty, you can use the present (ex. El año que viene vuelvo seguro). In this exercise, the verb also needs to be in the first person, not the third person as it appears here.
- Question 10: (VISITAD) The imperative afirmativo (affirmative imperative) in the second person plural, used not as an order but as an invitation or a suggestion. Here it makes up part of a realistic hypothesis using the structure "SI" + present tense…+ Imperative (ex. Si tienes calor toma un baño).
It seems that your current level is A2..
With all the Spanish that you already know and a class with don Quijote, you'll be able to reach a higher level in no time.
