How to pronounce the name of the colors in Portuguese

Here’s a tip: We use the word “incolor” for something that has no color, just like the water we drink.

Some colors are defined by masculine or feminine words.

Let’s see how we do this in the examples below:

  • Por favor, quero comprar uma camisa azul. (Please, I want to buy a blue shirt.)
  • Você tem sandália dourada? Eu tenho um tênis dourado. (Do you have golden sandals? I have golden tennis shoes.)
  • Quanto custa o cachecol cinza? (How much is the grey scarf?)
  • Marina tem olhos verdes. (Marina has green eyes.)
  • As Havaianas do Fernando são marrons. (Fernando’s Havaianas are brown.)
  • O cabelo da menina é vermelho. A camisa do menino é vermelha. (The girl’s hair is red. The boy’s shirt is red.)
  • O sol é amarelo. A flor é amarela. (The sun is yellow. The flower is yellow.)

Let’s practice.

  • Quais são as cores da bandeira do Brasil? (What are the colors in the Brazilian flag?
  • Qual é a cor do cabelo do Pablo? (What color is Pablo’s hair?)

  • Qual é a cor da blusa da Nathália? (What color is Nathália’s top?)

  • Qual é sua cor favorita? (What is your favourite color?)
  • Qual é a cor do céu? (What color is the sky?)
  • Qual é a cor da lua? (What color is the moon?)
