Whether you're on the market or shopping, when it comes to describing a product, colors are always important. Even with the hairdresser, it may be useful to indicate the correct color for a hair color. In following lesson, you will learn the colors in Croatian and practice them.
When the color describe something about the noun, you will call it an adjective. In Croatian you have female and male nouns. Female words mostly end on "a". The rule here is that the color corresponds to the noun. Let's try with an example: I have red shirt - Imam crvenu majicu. The color red says something about the t-shirt, which is a feminine word and therefore "o" in masculine becomes an "a" in feminine. Let's try with another example: My sweater are blue - Moj džemper je plav.
|English||Croatian - male / female|
How do you make a plural of Croatian colours? It's very easy, you stick an -i to masculine nouns and -e or -a to female and neuter nouns. Be really careful with the genders!
If you want to accentuate that the color is light or dark, in Croatian we just put the word dark (tamno / tamna) or light (svijetlo / svjetla) in front of the color.
In the following list you can find some examples:
|tamno plava||dark blue|
|svjetlo plava||light blue|
|svjetlo narančasta||light orange|
|tamno narančasta||dark orange|
|svjetlo ljubičasta||light purple|
|tamno ljubičasta||dark purple|
This sofa is light red. = Ovaj kauč je svjetlo crven.
Her bag is dark green. = Njena torba je tamno zelena.
The Croatian flag consists of three horizontal lanes - ( red, white, blue) with the Croatian emblem in the middle.
Last but not less importan vocabulary is about hair colors. Good comunication with a hairdresser while on vacation is always important. So, please check the following examples.
|Blond hair||Plava kosa|
|Black hair||Crna kosa|
|Red hair||Crvena kosa|
|Brown hair||Smeđa kosa|
|Gray hair||Siva kosa|
|White hair||Bijela kosa|

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
