This section deals with the French words and vocabulary referring to colors.
In French, most color names work like adjectives. By that I mean that they usually agree in gender and number with the noun they modify (more on that at the end of this lesson).
This is a particularly important thing to remember, especially for those of you whose primary language disregard this aspect (bonjour, my English speaking friends). Of course, as always, there are some exceptions. But you will find a nice list of formulas further down below to help you understand when to agree French colors and when not to.
- You are a complete or false beginner of French (although students at higher levels can still benefit from practicing with flashcards and from listening to the audio clips).
- You want to be able to name almost all colors in French and utlize these color nouns in ways not usually shown to French learners.
- You don’t necessarily have French-speaking conversation partners readily available to start a simple Q&A talk.
- You’re looking to take your listening and speaking skills with confidence and at your own pace.
- You must have a computer and it must be connected to the internet.
- Your computer must be equipped with built-in or external speakers to be able to listen to the recorded French audio segments.
- No prior knowledge of French is required as everything will be taught.
- You must, at least, be familiar with the English and/or French alphabet, and if you were able to follow me until now, chances are I don’t have to worry about it on that point.
