Text

There are a few exercises in the text than can be useful for practicing the story line materials. Below, you will find discussions of these exercises and links to the answers and English translations. I will provide the English equivalent of the Spanish in each exercise so that you can check your comprehension and perhaps try to put the English back into Spanish, using the text as your answer sheet. Anything in these exercises could appear on the Spanish to English section of the exam. A few exercises also have special exam pages that could become part of an exam.
