Colours in Croatian language
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.
List of Croatian colors (male and female)
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|
The colours in plural
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!
- Kupio sam tri crna kompjutera. - I bought three black computers.
- Najviše volim crvene jagode. I love red strawberries the most.
Dark and light
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.
Colours of the Croatian flag
The Croatian flag consists of three horizontal lanes - ( red, white, blue) with the Croatian emblem in the middle.
Hair colors in Croatian
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|
- Oh, you dyed your hair. Now it's red. - Oh, obojala si kosu. Sada je crvena.

I would like to outline my extensive experience, qualifications, and expertise in teaching English, Italian and Croatian (native). I believe I... possess the skills, qualifications and vital experience necessary for the role, but also the passion and dedication to lead students to succeed.I have over 10 years’ experience as an English teacher (including 2 years teaching in China in private training centers and a couple of months of online teaching), working with children aged 3 - 18 in schools and in a kindergarten. I taught also adults and offered private English lessons, too. In addition, I have a degree in English and Italian language and literature and am fluent in both as well as a native Croatian speaker. My previous work involved me traveling internationally, where I worked as an interpreter - in this role I worked under pressure and had to adapt to the culture of the country and I feel confident that I could apply that to this job. In my previous teaching roles, I took a resourceful and creative approach to teaching, organising competitions, field trips, and other activities in the aim of making learning a fun experience, and I believe that this approach was successful in seeing students achieving high results.I am extremely dedicated and reliable, with a strong passion for language.
