French colors

I just wanted to know what the colors "auburn" and "mauve" would be in French? I need it for a vocab builder. Thanks!

WordReference is an excellent resource for questions like this!
As it turns out, they are "auburn" and "mauve" in French as well :)

Could you explain me what is a vocab builder, perhaps in French that will be easier for me.

actually, it's not on duolingo itself, but it means "vocabulary helper". it helps strengthen your vocabulary. Also, are you learning to speak english? and french? AND German? that's a lot

Mais non... I am French and I am living near the German border, so German is more reviewing for me than learning, but my aim is to learn English, in any case as much as possible. Thank you for your explanation Vielen dank für deine Erklärung Merci pour ton/votre explication. And yes I know a lot of colors, anyway you can find more on wikipédia : liste de noms de couleur en français, good luck !
