There are lots of fun ways to learn and review colors when learning another language. Our family enjoys learning colors in Spanish with the wordless book, with color by number pages, with matching games, and with coloring sheets.
English and Spanish color words:
- Red = rojo (row-ho)
- Pink = rosado (row-sah-dough)
- Orange = anaranjado (ah-nah-rahn-ha-dough)
- Yellow = amarillo (am-are-ee-yoh)
- Green = verde (ver-day)
- Blue = azul (ah-suhl)
- Light Blue = azul cielo (ah-suhl see-ay-low)
- Purple = morado (more-ah-dough)
- Brown = café (cah-fey)
- Black = negro (neh-grow)
- Grey = gris (gree-s)
- White = blanco (blahn-co)
It is important to note that some color names will differ depending on the country vocabulary of the person. For instance, in Mexico brown may be café, but in Spain in may be marrón.
