Spanish Color Words

Our Spanish colors list is a little different than the other vocabulary lists on the site. Instead of just being textual, the list of Spanish colors is presented in a chart with both an English translation of each Spanish color word and also a block of color to help you visually remember the Spanish color translations.

We've also added some color-related words that you might find handy, including the Spanish to English translations for the words opaque, dark, translucent, and transparent, plus a series of videos you can watch that go into great detail about the Spanish color words.

Also, if you are interested in learning more about the Spanish language and are looking for some formal learning materials, there is also a section for recommended Spanish learning books. Take a quick look and read the reviews. If you find any of the books interesting, then by all means click on them for more information. (You will be taken to
