Great Lesson, Ronnie! I think my favorite colors are crimson red, sky blue and plum. I can’t choose only one.

Tuesday, November 29th 2016

Thank You, Ronnie, Because we have variety of color with different name and remembering them is not so easy, IF I want to buy a color, I prefer to use color code instead of the name. Do you know the “Kelly” color will be number 335 in Panton?

It was a good explanation about Nine different type of colours, I think the Seven colours of the rainbow plus white and black. I have understood many expressions but I have had to search some of them in the dictionary and I almost remember the favourite Ronnie’s colour but I failed at the end, it was indigo, the blue one from the rainbow, what’s a pity. Anyhow, I have to be grateful by teacher Ronnie’s lesson. Thanks a lot.

I didn’t get you because I’m colorblind.
I’m lying, of course; I found this video particularly interesting, with a lot of new stuff to learn.
By the way, I learnt that that the italian word “daltonico” is “colorblind” in English.

Thanks for the lesson Ronnie! In fact, such lessons as this are useful ’cause you start searching more words on the subject in your memory.

Monday, December 12th 2016

We also have zillions of crazy names for the basic colors in Portuguese. For example, we have “bastard amber” (a kind of pink), “drake’s neck” (a kind of “bottle-green” :D ), “let’s kiss” (a red), “pink possession” (a dark and strong shade of pink), “superfantastic magic pink” (another pink variation), “mutant brown” (a very beautiful greyish brown), “scandal red” (a red that… screams :O ), “drunken green” (maybe because a drunkard’s face), “purple tragedy” and so on. :)

Hello everyone,
this lesson was rally useful for me.I very frequently use colors without knowing it.
I’m going to give you examples each of them.
RED: I drink sparkling wine only on December 31.
Black and Gray: There are many ravens and doves in my town.
Purple: My mother made a delicious plum cake yesterday.
Orange: I prefer a Yellow melon to cantaloupe.
Green and Yellow:I think that, the most common sour fruits are:lime and lemon.
Blue: I knew a gentleman who was in a navy.
Pink: I would rather eat Miruna than Salmon.Salmon is too greasy for me.
White: I drink only lactose-free milk.

Very simple instances.
See you late in the next lesson :)
