How did you do with the second asking for address information..  Let us next look at the lower section of the subscription card. This is the section of the card that asks for information on how you are going to pay for your gift subscription.  The card will remain at the top of the page.  As such you may have to return to the top of the page to review the different sections of the card.   To return back to where you were click on the appropriate number above.

The first word is "adjunto".  The word next to it is "cheque".  It is not too difficult to figure out that this is the Spanish word for "check".  In fact it exactly matches how it is spelled in England.  So how does this help you in figuring out what "adjunto" means in English?  Well if you are going to send a check you must have to place the subscription card in an envelope.  Therefore the check would be _______ in the envelope.  Can you figure out what the missing word is?  Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.

There is another choice of something that you could send to pay for the subscription.  What could the phrase "Giro Postal" mean?  You learned in the address section of the subscription card that "Postal" in Spanish means the same as "Postal" in English.  What else could you send that would be like a check?  Something that can be purchased at the post office (or a bank, or a convenience store)?  Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.

Giro Postal

Money Order (or Postal Order)

Next is the phrase "Envíenme La Factura".  You know that a word that has "la" or "el" before it must be a noun.   Therefore "La Factura" must be a noun.  That should make "Envíenme" a verb.  If you don't want to pay for something now, what could you request that the company do?  Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.

Envíenme La Factura

Send me a bill (or invoice)

Next you have the option of paying with a credit card.  After you check the appropriate type of credit card what does the company request you complete?  Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.

Finally in the last section they are asking for information that concerns the credit card.  It might be difficult to know if you don't have a credit card, but let's see if you can guess what each phrase means.  The first "Fecha de Vencimiento" has something to do specifically with the credit card.  You already gave the number of the credit card, so what else might they be asking?  As a hint credit cards are usually only good for a set period of time.  After that they have to be renewed.   Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.

Fecha de Vencimiento

Expiration Date

The final phrase is "Firma autorizada".  Once again it might be difficult to figure out this phrase if you do not use a credit card.   Basically the company wants you to do something that gives them the right to bill your credit card for the price of the subscription.  The word "autorizada" looks similar in spelling to the meaning of the word in English.  Can you figure out what that word is?  Can you figure out what "Firma" means in English? Once you think you have the right answer click on the empty box below and drag your mouse from left to right.
