About Me:I'm a graduate student studying International Criminal Law and first started writing for King's News almost 4 years ago! My hobbies include reading, travelling and charity work. I cover many categories but my favourite articles to write are about mysteries of the ancient world, interesting places to visit, the Italian language and animals!

A great way to learn colours in Italian is through games! Why not ask your friend to point to random objects so you can then say the colour in Italian? If you’re the sporty type you can also try another game which used to be one of my favourites: one person calls out a colour (in Italian) then everybody else races to touch an object of that colour. For example if someone says ‘Giallo’ we all have to touch something yellow, like a yellow flower. The first person to do so wins! For those who prefer staying indoors why not  try King’s News’ very own crossword below!
