Hi! Today we are going to learn the names of the rooms inside a house and lots of useful terms and expressions on the topic. Interestingly, at the beginning of the 20th century most Russians lived in the county and Russia was an agricultural nation. Nowadays most Russian people live in apartments. Most of these apartments have just 1-3 rooms including the bedroom. However a lot of Russians would prefer to live in their own house. So as the population gets wealthier we should see a growing tendency of people moving from the packed big cities to the peaceful countryside. In this lesson for beginners we'll learn the names of the rooms inside a house and lots of useful expressions.
