  6. Here are some interesting discussions on that anaranjado/ naranja issue…

    Obviously, this is a regional and a personal preference, in addition to the slight distinction between “orange-colored” (naranja) and “orange-ish” (anaranjado)… For your convenience, I have included an introductory poster and one simple puzzle that use “anaranjado”. Students of teachers using “naranja” can use all the other worksheets, and those teachers who prefer “anaranjado” can point out the fact that sometimes we call orange “naranja”. After all, it is better to know that both terms exist, than to create confusion for students somewhere down the line, when they do come into contact with the OTHER term… 🙂

    I would still like to hear from you — which do YOU prefer? Or do you introduce both terms?

    I am going to use some of the worksheets in our homeschool. However, please note: “naranja” is the citrus fruit ‘orange’, while “anaranjado” is the color orange. It is completely incorrect to call the color “naranja”! Thanks.

    • Yeah, that’s how I learned it, too — but it seems to be changing… I consulted 1/2 dozen different books and sorted through pages of Google results, and the consensus seems to be in favor of using “naranja”… even in lists of COLORS (not just from dictionaries, which include both the noun and the adjective).

      I invite everyone else to comment on this naranja/anaranjado issue… Please let us know which YOU prefer… Anna especially would like to hear from native Spanish speakers on this matter…

        Un idioma es un ser vivo, y como todos los seres vivos, cambia, así que hay que reconocer que hoy en día hay mucha gente que dice naranja para hablar del color.
