rainbow

English children (and adults) have a technique to remember the colours of the rainbow. They memorize the sentence:

“Richard of York gained battles in vain.”

  • Richard – Red
  • Of – Orange
  • York – Yellow
  • Gained – Green
  • Battles – Blue
  • In – Indigo
  • Vain – Violet

Easy, isn’t it?
