I have been given the sentence yo oigo los colores which translates as I hear the colours. As far as I know, we cannot hear colours - is there a better translation?
Some people can hear colours and forms. It's a psychological phenomenon. Check Daniel Tammet in his presentation below. The guy even learned Icelandic in just 1 week. Very interesting! http://www.ted.com/talks/daniel_tammet_different_ways_of_knowing.html
Hello genielynau, sometimes I think the sentences used in the lessons on this site don't make a lot of sense simply because they are trying to find out whether or not you actually know what the words mean. It's the same idea as elephants drinking milk, which of course we all know that they don't.
