In French, nouns have gender – masculine or feminine. The French colors are adjectives that normally agree in gender and number with the noun. The color is typically placed after the noun. Plurals add an s as shown in parentheses.

The following colors in French are invariable. They stay the same regardless of gender or number.

Brown Marron
Orange Orange

Here are some examples:

  • A red apple – Une pomme rouge.
  • The white snow. – La neige blanche.
  • The blue shirt. – La chemise bleue.
  • The blue shirts. – Les chemises bleues.
  • Sounds like a lot to remember. Choose a few colors to focus on and then add on.

    Pass the Ball Game

    This is a fun way to learn a few colors at a time – with a group of friends. Sit in a circle. You will need six small balls - red, green, yellow, white, orange and blue. Pass the balls one at a time. As you are passing, everyone says the name of the color. To make it extra fun, we put our game to a fun rocky beat. Pass the ball is a fun classroom activity and is included in our Classroom French for Kids program. Classroom French also supplies an oversized parachute. Kids love to play parachute games and we use it to help learn the colors.
