Mandarin Chinese

Colours In Mandarin! Nǐ xǐhuan shénme yánsè?

Different colours (yánsè):

Lán (blue)

Hēi (black)

Hóng (red)

Huáng (yellow)


Bái (white)


The dialog:

Nǐ xǐhuan shénme yánsè? (What colour do you like?)

Wŏ xǐhuan … de yánsè. (I like … colour .)

However, since we know we are talking about colours, we omit yánsè.

e.g. Wŏ xǐhuan lǜ de.
