How To Name And Pronounce Colors In Spanish

Imagine a world in black-and-white. Some of you Instagram aficionados or classic movie lovers might find it charming at first, but after a while, you’d probably miss the vibrant colors that make up our daily lives. The gleaming yellow sun, the crisp blue water, the lush green grass and trees, even the multicolored palette of food you eat throughout the day. When you’re learning Spanish, you want that new world to be in color, too. You may need to know how to distinguish between clothing items, foods, cocktails or cars, and how to describe the various people, places and things you see during your travels. (Pro tip: learning how to count in Spanish will also help with this.) Here’s a brief guide to the colors in Spanish, and how to pronounce them.
