This Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz will help you to practice learning your Spanish colors. The one downside about learning Spanish colors is that they do not generally closely relate to their English counterpart words. For example, the color orange in English is naranja in Spanish. That simply means that you’ll have to practice saying, learning to spell and hearing the Spanish color words. In time, and with practice, the Spanish color words will become very familiar to you. A goal towards learning to speak Spanish is to learn to think in Spanish so that when you hear the word naranja you see the color orange right away!
Okay, so if you are ready, here is a list of the more common color words.
|English||Spanish||Pronounced (Phonetically) As:|
|red||rojo (a)||rō-hō / rō-hă|
|yellow||amarillo (a)||ă-mă-rē-yō / ă-mă-rē-yă|
|pink||rosado (a)||rō-zăr-dō / rō-zăr-dă|
|white||blanco (a)||blărn-cō / blărn-că|
|black||negro (a)||nā-grō / nā-gră|
|brown||café and/or marrón||căr-fāy and/or mă-rroon (the double rr is rolled together with the tongue)|
Colors are adjective words as they describe an object or thing. Because of this, some color words must conform with the object or thing it is describing. In other words, if the object or thing is feminine then the adjective will need to be feminine. If the object or thing is masculine, then, again, the adjective must be masculine. Some colors, however, are neutral and can be used with either feminine or masculine objects and things and be spelled the same way for each. Learning this is pretty much done all by memory, although if a color ends in the letter 'o' that is a pretty good sign that the 'o' can be changed to an 'a' to reflect the feminine version.
Once you have practiced saying each of the colors above, it will be time to move onto the quiz questions. For each quiz question, see if you can find the correct color needed for that question.
