Question of the Day: AP Spanish

"El globito azul" por Juan Antonio Castevany (1883)

MIRABA un niño asombrado,
Con expresión cariñosa,
Un globo de azul pintado,
Por un hilo sujetado
Á su mano cuidadosa.

El globo, con lento vuelo,
En el aire se mecía,
Y el hermoso pequeñuelo,
Con infantil alegría,
Por verlo miraba al cielo.

Á pesar de su viveza
Y su alegre desaliño,
Cierto sello de tristeza
Marchitaba la pureza
De la sonrisa del niño.

¡Ay! que cuando preguntaba
Por su madre, con amor,
—«¡Está en el cielo!» escuchaba,
Y en el cielo la buscaba
Con inocente candor.


Miraba el globo tranquilo
El niño, con dulce arrobo,
Cuando, rompiéndose el hilo,
Remontóse al cielo el globo,
Cual si en él buscara asilo.

No produjo al tierno infante
Pena, llanto ni agonía
Ver que el globo se perdía;
Antes bien, en su semblante
Se retrató la alegría.

Y se dijo por consuelo
Siguiendo su raudo vuelo:
—¡Oh! qué de prisa que va!
¡Mejor! ¡Cuando llegue al cielo,
Mi madre lo cogerá!

Según el contexto del poema, ¿qué significa la palabra en negritas?






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.
