Vocabulary - Adding to the Color Palette

This Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz will cover a wider range of colors to add to your Spanish color palette vocabulary. If you have not already done so, you might want to check out the Spanish Easy Review quiz titled A Rainbow of Colors as it contains a listing of the more common colors. However, the world is filled with a plethora of many colors beyond the basic common ones so let’s stretch beyond the common with the following list.

Some of these will take a bit of practice saying over and over again before they feel natural to you. Remember that whenever a vowel has an accent mark, that vowel gets a stronger sound to it.

When you have said each word several times, and learned how to spell each word, move onto the quiz section.

English Spanish Pronounced (Phonetically) As:
amber ámbar ărm-băr
auburn caoba că-ō-bă
blond rubio rū-bē-ō
brunette morena mō-rā-nă
fuchsia fucsia foo-sē-ă
lavender lavanda lă-văn-dă
maroon granate gră-nă-tā
mauve malva măl-vă
midnight blue negro azulado nā-grō ă-zū-lă-dō
peach melocotón mā-lō-cō-tōn
