The Basic Spanish Colors
Using Spanish colors with masculine /feminine / singular / plural nouns
1. Use the opposite word order from English (a ‘red shoe’ in English would be a ‘shoe red’ in Spanish)
2. Depends whether the object you’re describing is masculine or feminine
3. Depends whether the object you’re describing is singular or plural
Shoe in Spanish is masculine (el zapato)
Strawberry in Spanish is feminine (la fresa)
A red shoe = un zapato rojo
Two red shoes = unos zapatos rojos
A red strawberry = una fresa roja
Two red strawberries = unas fresas rojas
