Question of the Day: AP Spanish

Adapted from Mala Hierba by Pío Baroja (1904)

Mientras tanto, Manuel subía y bajaba las casas de toda la calle en busca de Roberto Hasting.

Hallábase Manuel con decisión para intentar seriamente un cambio de vida, se sentía capaz de tomar una determinación enérgica y dispuesto a seguirla hasta el fin.

Su hermana mayor, que acababa de casarse con un bombero, le regaló unos pantalones rotos de su esposo, una chaqueta vieja y una bufanda raída. Además añadió a la donación una gorra de forma y de color absurdos, un sombrero hongo anciano y algunos buenos y vagos consejos acerca del trabajo, el cual, como nadie ignora, es el padre de todas las virtudes, como el caballo es el más noble de todos los animales y la ociosidad la madre de todos los vicios.

Es muy posible, casi seguro, que Manuel hubiese preferido a estos buenos y vagos consejos, a esta gorra de forma y color absurdos, a la chaqueta vieja, al sombrero anciano, a la bufanda raída y a los pantalones rotos, una pequeña cantidad de dinero, ya fuera en cuartos, en plata o en billetes.

La juventud es así, no tiene norte ni guía; imprevisora siempre, concede más valor a los dones materiales que a los espirituales, sin comprender en su ignorancia absoluta que una moneda se gasta, un billete se cambia, y las dos cosas pueden perderse, y en cambio un buen consejo ni se gasta ni se pierde, ni se reduce a calderilla, y tiene además la ventaja de que sin cuidarse de él para nada, dura eternamente, sin enmohecimiento ni deterioro. Prefiriese una cosa u otra, hay que confesar que Manuel tuvo que contentarse con lo que le dieron.

Con este lastre de los buenos consejos y de las malas prendas de vestir, sin vislumbrar ni un cuarto de luz en su camino, Manuel repasó en la memoria la corta lista de sus conocimientos, y pensó que de todos, el único capaz de favorecerle era Roberto Hasting.

Penetrado de esta verdad, para él muy importante, se dedicó a buscar a su amigo. En el cuartel ya le habían perdido de vista hacía tiempo; doña Casiana, la de la casa de huéspedes, a quien Manuel encontró en la calle, no sabía las señas de Roberto, y le indicó que quizá el Superhombre las supiera.

—¿Sigue viviendo en su casa de usted?

—No, estaba ya harta de que no me pagara. No sé donde vive; pero le encontrarás en El Mundo, un periódico de la calle de Valverde que tiene un letrero en el balcón.

Buscó Manuel el periódico de la calle de Valverde y lo encontró en seguida; subió al piso principal de la casa, y se detuvo ante una puerta cerrada con un cristal, en donde había grabados dos mundos, el antiguo y el moderno. No había timbre ni llamador de campanilla, y Manuel se puso a repiquetear con los dedos en el cristal, encima precisamente del nuevo mundo, y en esta ocupación le sorprendió el mismísimo Superhombre, que llegaba de la calle.

¿Cómo describiría la ropa que recibió Manuel?

Antigua, pero caro

Nueva y bonita

Nueva, pero barata

Ni nueva ni vieja

Fea y antigua

After you take Spanish in high school, and you’ve become enamored with the language, you may want to continue into college course-level language classes. AP Spanish is a great choice for students like you who have discovered a deep love of Spanish as a living language, or who wish to become fluent in Spanish as part of their career trajectory. When you take the step in high school to take college-level classes, you take a big intellectual step as well. However, you are also concerned about the AP Spanish exam at the end of the semester. This is where Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools Question of the Day can be a great resource for your test preparation.

No matter how much you love the Spanish language, you may not take tests very well. Even if you are a great test-taker, you still need to have the right study aids available to you. Fortunately, the Learning Tools offer several great ways for you to study consistently, instead of cramming for your exam at the last minute and feeling burdened by the stress. Daily test preparation helps you avoid the sudden adrenaline rush at the end of the semester.

The Question of the Day updates each day of the week, offering new ways to review written Spanish and get accustomed to complex written grammar. Through writing, you can experience the difference in colloquial spoken and formal written grammar, which is a distinction between all living languages. Conversational practice is extremely important, but when you’re in a Spanish-speaking country, you must be able to interpret written signs, menus, informational packets, newspapers, and much more. By testing your written understanding of Spanish, you will be able to figure out which areas of the language you need to focus on most.

You can also use the Question of the Day study tool to help you perfect your daily test review. You can compare your answers to previous Questions of the Day, so you can see which areas of vocabulary or grammar are stronger or weaker for you. You can also compare how well other AP Spanish students answer questions compared to you, and discover how you rank nationally.

Best of all, the Question of the Day has a countdown timer feature. There are two basic sections of the AP Spanish exam, and the first section is multiple-choice. You will have 95 minutes to answer 65 questions about the Spanish language, which gives you about one and a half minutes to read and answer each question involving complex romance grammar and vocabulary. When you use the free AP Spanish practice questions through Question of the Day, you will feel the pressure of being timed, but you will also be able to see how your time changes as you study more, and become more proficient with the language. Soon, you’ll be able to answer questions in complex tenses with difficult vocabulary with time to spare!

Use the AP Spanish Question of the Day to enhance your test review, but check out the other test preparation methods that are offered through Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools as well. Practice tests, flashcards, and Learn by Concept are all available to assist you on your journey to taking the AP Spanish exam.
