HOUSE vs. HOME   一軒家 vs. 住居


  • A house is a building for people - usually one family - to live in. It usually has one kitchen, one living room, etc., but often has more than one bedroom.

    Your home is the house, apartment, or condominium that you live in.
  • house は、人(通常1家族)が住んでいる建物、つまり、一軒家のことです。たいてい、台所や居間などは1つずつ、寝室は2つ以上あります。

    home は、人が住んでいる一軒家やアパート、マンション、つまり、住居のことです。
