Colors in Italian

Colors are some of the words you’ll utilize most when speaking Italian. You’ll be surprised how often you use color words to describe things on a daily basis. You can start new conversations too by talking about your favorite color: "Il mio colore preferito è …". Or perhaps you’re shopping and need to specify what you’re looking for.

After this lesson you’ll be a master of the colors in Italian!

Remember that many colors in Italian change gender depending on the noun it’s describing. If the color ends in ‘o’ it will change to an ‘a’ for a feminine word. For example, "the red shirt" is translated as una camicia rossa. See how the endings match?

You’ve added a whole host of new words to your Italian vocabulary bank. I hope you enjoyed this lesson!

A presto!
