こんにちは
Hello

日本語で青いと緑の違いは何ですか。
In Japanese, what is the difference between 青い and 緑?

草は青いです、けれども空は青いもです。
Grass is 青い but so is the sky.

エメラルドは緑です。
Emeralds are 緑 (at least I think they are!)

わたしは目が草のと同じ色です。それは青いですか、それとも緑ですか。
My eyes are the same colour as grass. Are they 青い or 緑?

*I'll have to write this last bit in English because I have no idea how I could structure it in japanese; what other things can be described by 青い and 緑? And are there any rules which might help in working out which word to use in which situation?

ありがとうございます
Thank you very much.
