What it is

Colorín Colorado is a free, web-based, service that provides information, activities, and advice for educators, and Spanish-speaking families of English language learners (ELLs).

The name of the service, "Colorín Colorado," comes from a playful phrase that is said at the end of many stories in Spanish-speaking countries. There's no literal translation, but the phrase is similar to "…and that's the end of the story!" or "…and they lived happily every after." Click on "Why that name?" to learn more about this enduring, endearing tradition.
