"Amanecer" is the word for dawn in Spanish. "Madrugada" is more like "early morning".
Aug 17th, 2009 at 19:56 GMT
Me toco en la medianoche.

I got 4/14, mostly by saying "buenas..." to myself and filling in the appropriate blank. I also tried the old, "adding an o to the end of english words" method, but that was less successful - apparently the Spanish word for century is not "centurio". Ah, well.

9/14. Thank you Southern California public education.

Don't tell my Spanish prof...
Comment below threshold:
Aug 17th, 2009 at 20:27 GMT
i thought manana (with an accent on the second n) was dawn, can anyone tell me how madrugada is different?
Aug 17th, 2009 at 20:36 GMT
Manana simply means tomorrow Alex. Madrugada is used for both dawn and like times after 12am.
Aug 17th, 2009 at 20:37 GMT
Ugghh I hate when you think of an answer when there is only one second left and you cannot type it (I remembered to add medio to the words).
Aug 17th, 2009 at 20:42 GMT
@ ianbob Yea same here. You get a lot of Spanish down here. @Mr. Negative Uhhh I'm not sure if that comment is going to go way down or way up
Aug 17th, 2009 at 20:55 GMT
@alex mañana means tomorrow but it also means morning.
Aug 17th, 2009 at 21:00 GMT
I think "aurora" should be accepted for "dawn".
Aug 17th, 2009 at 21:00 GMT
Its amazing how much spanish you pick up without any formal classes, through things like movies, tv, and Taco Bell menus
Aug 17th, 2009 at 21:01 GMT
madrugada is only one of the many ways to say "dawn." "amanecer" and "alba" should be acceptable too.
Aug 17th, 2009 at 21:19 GMT
Fun fact - when you say/spell año without the tilde over the "n", it means anus.
Aug 17th, 2009 at 21:55 GMT
Alex - As I understand it after studying abroad in Spain, both "mañana" and "madrugada" can be used for time to mean morning, but "madrugada" is when it is still dark outside. So when you come back from partying, it is "tres de la madrugada" but when you wake up, it is "diez de la mañana." Hope that helps. I agree with others that "amanecer" and "alba" are both better terms for dawn.
Aug 17th, 2009 at 22:47 GMT
at least in Southern Spain madrugada means early morning, as in 7am, 5am, not dawn.
Aug 18th, 2009 at 01:28 GMT
I thought "madrugada" was the period between medianoche and amanecer, what's known in slangy English as "oh dark thirty" or "the ass-crack of dawn."
Aug 18th, 2009 at 01:52 GMT
Got 8 without studying Spanish.
Aug 18th, 2009 at 02:04 GMT
ughh i cant believe i forgot tarde!! what's worse, i'm taking spanish 4 this year!
Aug 18th, 2009 at 02:14 GMT
It's been years since i've been in a spanish class.
Aug 18th, 2009 at 03:08 GMT
fun quiz. me gusta.
Aug 18th, 2009 at 11:31 GMT
The one word I would have got right - morning - isn't on the quiz!
Aug 18th, 2009 at 12:36 GMT
I thought amanecer meant Dawn as in "in dawned on him that.."
Aug 29th, 2009 at 18:29 GMT
Forgot dia was masculine. Smart me. :P
Dec 10th, 2009 at 16:40 GMT
Amanecer is on the list; so should crepusculo (dusk). Manana (morning) should certainly be there. Another word for decade: decada.
Dec 14th, 2009 at 21:42 GMT
decenio no se dice, se dice década

I don't think the "el" or "la" should be necessary. You should only have to type the word itself.
Feb 23rd, 2012 at 21:49 GMT
Test says "You do not need to enter 'el' and 'la' to get the correct answer," yet the quiz ignores the majority of correct answers if they're not typed with an article. For example, "segundo," "hora," "semana," and "mes," along with most other answers are not accepted when typed without an article. On the other hand, "dia" is accepted by itself. Can we fix the formatting on the answers?
Mar 20th, 2012 at 20:02 GMT
^I don't understand why it took 2 and a half years for someone to mention that in a comment.
May 23rd, 2012 at 18:09 GMT
It should be EL amanecer, not *la amanecer :)
Aug 21st, 2012 at 12:36 GMT
"Día," "año," and "mediodía" (with the diacritics) are not accepted without the article. :-?
