Adjectives are words which describe nouns. Colours are adjectives, for example, ‘the brown dog’ or ‘the black night’. In these examples, ‘dog’ and ‘night’ are nouns and ‘brown’ and ‘black’ are adjectives. In this quiz we learn and revise the French names for different colours. See how many you can remember. They’ll all come in handy when it comes to the GCSE exams.
