Teaching Colours to elementary adults
Hello everyone, here I am asking for your priceless help again.
I have to teach COLOURS to a group of adults, they are at an elementary level.

I īm having the same problem.
I think I will write the colours down and they will copy.
Then we have a game here in Portigal called UNO, cards with colours and numbers.
I also play battleship and hangman.
I īm also looking for a song.
I f I find one, I will let you know.
