Ponerse colorado: translation

The suggested translation of 'to go red on the face' sounds odd. In English, we would say 'to go red in the face' or, more colloquially, 'to get red-faced'

Hola Claire

That was a typo -now it's saying "in the face".

Gracias y saludos

Typo. We might simply use the verb, “to blush”.

Hola Cynthia

We used "to go red in the face" as it's also an expression in English that conveys the same idea, when you get embarrased. 

Here's an external short video that explains this expression in case it's useful.

Saludos
