What should I do if I feel stuck on a TOEFL question?
Make sure to keep going and answer everything you know, then come back to those questions you are struggling with. Sometimes, the answer to them is refreshed when you answer those questions you know.
Subject: SAT II Spanish
What are the levels of formality in Spanish?
While modern English uses 'you' for every interaction, in Spanish there are three levels of speech which differ according to setting and culture. The 'Usted' level is usually used in formal settings and to address superiors, 'Vos' level infers intimacy or trust, and 'Tu' works as a middle ground between the two.
What is a key piece of knowledge for Spanish learning that gets dismissed often?
More than just speaking Spanish, you must think in Spanish as well. Your brain will not be ready to hold a fluent conversation as long as you force it to translate information back and forth to your native language.
