Regents Review Listening:
Each question is worth 2 points
each, making this section worth 30 points total. Strategies:
1. Listen carefully to background
information because it can help you
limit possibilities. 2. Read the question and possible answers before you listen to the passage. Knowing what you are trying to hear makes it much easier to hear it. 3. Remember that you are listening
with the specific purpose of answering
the question. Do not waste time trying
to understand or translate each word. 4. Keep focused on the relevant information.
If you find yourself losing attention, refocus. 5. Use what you know (i.e. cognates, words with the same root, and so on) to decipher what you know. la carne
el carnicero
la carnicería 6. Don't be afraid
to guess! 7. Use process of elimination.
If you do not see the correct
answer right away, eliminate
those you know to be wrong. Reading Comprehension:
There are 3 sections.
Total points = 30
1-Long passage followed by
5 questions or incomplete
statements and multiple choice
answers in Spanish. 2-5 selections followed either
by a question or an incomplete
statement and multiple choice
answers in English. 3-Long passage followed
by questions or incomplete
statements and multiple
choice answers in English. Reading Strategies:
1. Decide what kind of passage it is...
conversation? radio broadcast?
newspaper article? advertisement? etc. 2. Answer the question: What
type of language is used in this context?
For example: Is it in the tú, usted, or some
other form? What tone is being set? 3. Predict or anticipate
the type of message is is likely to be. 4. Look for key words that help you
find the main point of the text.
Ex. cliente, ganador, premio, etc. 5. If you come across an unfamiliar word,
(which you will,) try to deduct the meaning
of the word by looking for context clues,
looking at the words around it, and looking for
other clues, such as what tense it is in if it's a verb
or if it belongs to a different part of speech. Also,
does it resemble another Spanish word you know?
If so, chances are the 2 words are related. 6. Read the questions before
reading the passage so that you
know what you are looking for. 7. Find the answer that
paraphrases what you read and what
you think the correct answer should
be. Writing:
You will choose 2 of the 3 writing
tasks for this section. You will write
100 words or more for EACH task.
This section is worth 16 total points,
(8 points per task.) Possible tasks:
-Writing a narrative based on
a picture provided.

-Writing letters, diary or journal
entries, or reviews of cultural
events. Strategies for Writing:
1. Focus on the purpose. In other words, be sure to communicate what you have been asked to communicate. 2. Pay attention to length. A
good rule of thumb is to strive
for 115 words or more.
-Names of people do not count.
-Place names and brand names
for the TARGET culture count as
words. Words in English do NOT
-Contractions are worth one word.
Example: del (de + el) = one word
-Salutations and closings in notes
written in Spanish do count.
-Commonly used abbreviations
in Spanish are counted, (ex. Ud.) 3. Make sure your writing
has a beginning, middle, and
ending. 4. If time permits, write a first
draft on your scrap paper to check
for length, purpose, and accuracy before
copying to the exam paper. Just be
mindful of the time. Transitional Words:
