Learn how to say the colors in Spanish with Rosetta Stone’s award-winning program.

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States behind English. And there are more Spanish speakers in the United States than in Spain. Over 40 million, in fact! This makes learning Spanish an incredibly popular endeavor for many.

A rudimentary understanding of Spanish colors is an important first step of learning basic vocabulary. The ability to understand Spanish colors allows you to both identify and describe things, and you may be surprised to see how much you will use colors in everyday conversation.

Here is a list of the most common colors and their English counterparts:

  • Verde = Green
  • Rojo = Red
  • Azul = Blue
  • Amarillo = Yellow
  • Morado = Purple
  • Rosado = Pink
  • Anaranjado = Orange
  • Marrón = Brown
  • Negro = Black

One thing you’ll want to take note of is that when referring to the word “orange,” there are different translations of the word depending on whether you mean the color or the fruit. The color orange is “anaranjado.” The word you would use for the fruit is “naranja.”
