Spanish Colors Words

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States behind English. And there are more Spanish speakers in the United States than in Spain. Over 40 million, in fact! This makes learning Spanish an incredibly popular endeavor for many.

A rudimentary understanding of Spanish colors is an important first step of learning basic vocabulary. The ability to understand Spanish colors allows you to both identify and describe things, and you may be surprised to see how much you will use colors in everyday conversation.

Here is a list of the most common colors and their English counterparts:

  • Verde = Green
  • Rojo = Red
  • Azul = Blue
  • Amarillo = Yellow
  • Morado = Purple
  • Rosado = Pink
  • Anaranjado = Orange
  • Marrón = Brown
  • Negro = Black

One thing you’ll want to take note of is that when referring to the word “orange,” there are different translations of the word depending on whether you mean the color or the fruit. The color orange is “anaranjado.” The word you would use for the fruit is “naranja.”

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
