Arabismos

Spanish online reading and listening practice - level B2

For nearly 800 years, Arabs from North Africa, frequently referred to as "Moors" (Spanish = moros), were the dominant rulers of a vast part modern-day Spain. Their influence left an indelible mark on Spanish architecture, culture, food and in particular, the Spanish language.

This reading and listening exercise can help you practise El Pretérito Perfecto, and El Pretérito Indefinido. Note that the speaker has a Puerto Rican accent when he speaks Spanish.

If you would like to find out more about the Arabic influences on Spanish culture and architecture, check out another one of our bilingual readers: La herencia árabe en España.
