I am trying to ask in spanish "what is a repaso?" (Quiz or Test?)
nitab, Welcome to the Forum! I'm sure you will learn a lot here and enjoy it at the same time. Regarding your question, could you explain a little more about what you want? If you want a translation for "What is a test?", then it would be good to first try to translate it yourself and then others of us will comment on your attempt.
To ask, you could say "Qué significa 'repaso?'" or "Que quiere decir 'repaso?'"
And, for the record, it is a review.
I think "Que tal es repaso?" asks "How is the review coming?"
"¿Qué es un repaso?" asks "What is a review?"
Prueba and examen are the words for quiz/test.
Agreed. Alternatively "How is the review going"... which makes me think it's funny that we can use both coming and going in this context, but that's for another discussion.
Thank you for your replies. What I was trying to ask would have been
"Que es un repaso?"
I am vey glad it is a review and not a test!!!
Agree with What is a review? = ¿Qué es un repaso?
But ¿Cómo va el repaso?, o ¿Que tal está el repaso? would be better for how is the review coming?
