We use adjectives to describe people or things. Two commonly used adjectives are colours (almost everything has a colour: the sky, the snow, our clothes etc.) and nationalities (every person has a nationality, and many other things do: French food, Greek islands, Spanish culture etc.). In this quiz we look at forty nationalities and colours. It’s a fast and fun way to revise French adjectives which will come in handy in tests and exams.
