In this advanced Spanish lesson we will take a look at the many typical Spanish expressions using colours – Expresiones en español con colores – such as Ponerse morado (which means to eat a lot) or Estar sin blanca (which means to not have any money).

This is the first Spanish lesson in a series on this topic. There will be two more lessons to follow. I hope very much that you enjoy the lessons and they help you in your quest to understand better and speak more like native Spanish speakers.

There are an incredible amount of Spanish expressions and phrases which we use all the time in every day conversation. Most have no logical sense and so if you have never heard these expressions before you can easily get lost in a conversation with a native speaker. It takes a long time to learn a good repertoire of typical Spanish expressions so there really is no time like the present to start collecting.

I hope that you are enjoying this course of Advanced Spanish video lessons. This is lesson 73 so far. Please click here to catch up on all the other lessons.
