Tarde also means afternoon. And the fact that it's immediatly before 'night' doesn't help, you may want to consider accepting it

The quiz master SPECIFICALLY SAID that if more than one answer fit, use the most common. Tarde by itself would more likely elicit "late". For time, it would be moreoften something like .... de la tarde...

I think people use Good Afternoon more than they scold people for being late (Though it might be like in French where you don't actually say Good Afternoon, and instead say Good Day for morning and afternoon).

I typed in afternoon first but after thinking about it a second got the right answer. I don't think there's any need for a change.

Since you have diacritics on most of the words that require it, you might want to add it to 'tío' as well.

It seems to me that a couple of these, fiesta and burro, have become so common in English that they don't need translating. The words have become part of the language even apart from Spanish-speaking areas, and are synonyms of the clues rather than translations.

I submitted burrow first instead of neighborhood for 'burrio'. Being that they mean the same and share a base, burrow should be accepted.

I would like to point out that while I habla no Español, I do know how to say, "You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny," in Spanish, as well as French, Russian and German. Just never know when you're gonna need that one.

Even though I've never used Spanish outside of the classroom and while south of the border, I use at least half of the words on the list in regular English conversations without anyone noticing. I'm not sure if that would be the case if I lived in New York or Michigan but in Houston it's the case.

I think festival (fiesta), granddaughter (niña), and area (barrio) are common enough to be included, they were all the first ones I thought of.
+2
Level 49
Oct 20, 2020
Festival, yes, it could be. Granddaughter, no, that would be 'nieta', which also refers to an adult, 'niña' refers to a child (female). Area (área in Spanish) is too general, could mean any area, neighborhood is more specific

I'm Filipino and I got 19/24! Not bad I guess. I was surprised "barrio" was the least answered. Every Filipino would know what it means, though I think 'village' should also be accepted.

It means afternoon, but QM has decided 'late' is more common. Probably right, given the common uses of (being) late and also (+ más) later.
