Do you know what color these words describe: maroon, fuchsia, hazel, and ivory? You probably learned simple colors like red, yellow, and blue in your first year of English... but the language has a lot more color words than these basic ones! Today you'll learn 12 interesting vocabulary words for colors. One quick note: Online, you'll often find very long lists of color words - but many of those are NOT in used in everyday English... they are typically used to describe different colors of paint, nail polish, or makeup, but they are not common in daily life. The words I'll teach you today are some of the more common ones.

Expanding your vocabulary is a great way to become more fluent in English - because when you know more words, you can express yourself better and say exactly what you want to say. I created two great courses to help you improve your vocabulary - they're called the Vocabulary Builder Course Level 1 and Level 2. You'll learn and practice more than 1000 useful words in each level! Level 1 is good for learning the essential English words we use to talk about everyday objects, activities, hobbies, and more. Level 2 is more advanced - you'll learn words that will help you express more complex ideas in detail.
