Syllabus of the Spanish Sentence Structure Test
The Spanish Sentence Structure has been specifically designed to assess an individual's job prospects by evaluating working skills and job readiness. For this reason, emphasis is laid upon evaluating the knowledge of applied skills gained through real work experience, rather than theoretical knowledge.
Who Should Take This Test:
- SENTENCE TYPES
- PARTS OF A SENTENCE
- CONNECTING & TRANSITIONAL WORDS
- STRUCTURE I: PARALLELISM
- STRUCTURE II: AGREEMENT
- STRUCTURE III: MISPLACED MODIFIERS
The Spanish Sentence Structure Test is designed for linguists, language professionals, teachers, editors, and advanced students who are native speakers of Spanish and who are very familiar with the mechanics and structure of the Spanish language.
Non-native speakers and non-professionals may find this test too challenging and may prefer to take the Spanish Grammar Test
What the Test Is About:
The questions on this multiple-choice test deal with the structure of the Spanish language and are technical in nature.
