Vocabulary:

Note:In English, when talking about the colours, especially the basic colours (e.g., red, blue, green, white, black, yellow etc.) we just say, “red” not “red colour”. However we do say something is “coloured red” and, “the colour red” etc.

  • Lavender, purple, violet, turquoise, grey = gray, beige, scarlet (deep red), olive green, pastel, mauve, tan, pink, crimson (a type of red), auburn
  • A “dark colour” e.g., dark blue, dark green; a “light colour”; a “bright colour”.
  • Other adjectives that are commonly used to describe colours – "cool", "warm", "soft"
  • Grey (gray) is sometimes described as a "bland" colour.
  • Multi-coloured
  • To dye, a dye, e.g., cloth, hair
  • A faded colour
  • Other uses of colours (besides decoration, art and for clothes) – Colours are often used symbolically, to represent something. The best example is traffic lights where red means "stop", green means "go" and orange (or yellow) means, "prepare to stop soon".

Another example is the use of colours to represent different things in graphs. For example, the different sectors of a pie chart are often shown with different colours to make the pie chart easier to read. Yet another example is the use of colours to represent a group, such as people in a club or organization all wearing the same colour. This is similar to people wearing a uniform. Look on the internet for "Colour Revolution" (or, "Color Revolution") when people who were engaged in a revolution all wore a certain colour to show their solidarity as a group.

Part 2 & 3 Questions

A Bad Service You Received In A Restaurant/Shop

Describe a bad service you received in a restaurant/shop

You should say:

what goods or services you bought

What happened

How you reacted

And explain how you felt about the experience

who you were with when you were served

why you went there

and explain how you felt about the service.

or

and explain what you did after receiving this bad service.

Notes

  • For this usage (this meaning), the word "service" is a non-count noun. So it is not correct to say, "I received a bad service" because "a" means, "one", which is counting. The correct wording is, "I received some bad service" or simply, "I received bad service". "Services" (plural) is used in English but not for this usage, where "service" is a general type of behaviour. (Similarly, "advice", which is a general type of language or communication, is non-count.)
  • English speakers often use the term, "poor service"  (= poor-quality service) although "bad service" is also used. "Bad service" is worse than "poor service". If your example is not so bad, adapt your language to include the term, "poor service", which is more or less the same and is still answering the question.
