Spanish Verbs Quiz + Audio : Multiple Choice Vocabulary
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Spanish Verbs Quiz is a fun way to learn Spanish vocabulary using MULTIPLE CHOICE questions.
The multiple choice quiz shows you the Spanish word and you choose an answer. Then you see if you were right or wrong. But what makes this quiz SMART is the progress tracking in the background.
The program remembers which words you have trouble with, and which you have learned well. It focuses on the problematic items, while using longer spans of time between repetitions of learned material.
- 160+ SPANISH VERBS
- NATIVE SPEAKER AUDIO
- PROGRESS TRACKING with stats & auto save

- COMPLETELY OFFLINE

Not for a beginner.
These verbs are not used in simple speech. I did not notice but a couple of verbs that appear onlists of the 100 or 300 most commonly used Spanish verbs. For more advanced speakers this might be a useful app.
Flawed by poor translations
Would you want to learn Spanish from a program in which a significant fraction of the words are badly translated? Here are some examples:
Agarrar is translated as "seize", but the real meaning is to grasp hold of, to catch.
Avergonzar is translated as "abash", an obsolete word from Middle English that survives in spoken English only in its past participles (abashed, unabashed). A better translation would be "to put to shame".
Asistir is translated as "to assist". In fact the major meaning of this word is really more like "to attend" and it means "to assist" mostly when use with a preposition as might occur in a medical context (asistí a una persona herida), in which case the literal meaning is in fact "to attend".
Apretar is translated as "clamp". The best translation would be "to tighten".
This unfortunate app was apparently created by some developer who probably speaks neither Spanish nor English as a first language. If you intend to learn Spanish, it is utterly worthless.
