Names of Colours in English
Generally, we learn the names of colours by associating them with objects having these colours. There are also activities conducted nowadays, where the names of the colours are written with different colours, and students will be asked to identify the colour in which the word is written and not the word itself (a colour name). This is an activity that is used not just to teach colour names to kids but also to improve their reasoning skills.
‘Did you see the girl in the red dress?’ You would often come across such questions in your daily lives. Colours are used for the sake of identifying both animate and inanimate objects. So, calling a magenta-coloured dress a red dress will not help. Learning the names of different colours will help you in ways that you would not be able to foresee. Have a look at the list below.
