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!

It's very interactive and easy to understand, though the initial directions were a little confusing--but only a little. Pronunciation is exact and (so far) easy to imitate. I wait until your speaker has finished so I can more accurately hear if I've mimicked him/her. And having the written Italian along with the pronunciation is helpful.

Works great, and fun. Only problem is that Hear it Say it stops working after a few lines. Otherwise seems very effective, can work while driving, lunch breaks etc. Before it was always hard to find quiet time to work on languages. Keep working on android!

I like the format of the lessons and practices. I also like the ability to manipulate the dialogues to listen to any part again, as it is in the repetition that I can get the pronunciation and intonation to sound like the speaker. I also like the tips for the tourist that will be useful for my upcoming trip to Italy.

We're preparing for a trip to Italy and hope this paves the way. Though the first part of the trip will be with a tour group of mostly English speakers, the second half will be "on our own," so some degree of fluency will be essential.
