Describe Your House in Arabic Part I Posted by on Jun 5, 2019 in Arabic Language, Vocabulary

In this post, we’ll be looking at Arabic vocabulary for different rooms in a house/apartment and practice how we can describe the basic characteristics صِفات of a house. 🏡

In the picture below I have drawn a house with the names of the rooms in Arabic to help you remember.

Of course, you can add adjectives to describe rooms or which floor you live on:

(كَبير، صَغير، مُتَوَسِط الحَجِم، جَنْب، الطابِق الأوَل، الطابِق الأرضي)

(big, small, medium sized, next to, first floor, ground floor)

Here are some examples on how you can describe your home.

.أوصَف بَيتُكَ

.بَيتُنا طابِقَين

.بَيتي فيه ثَلاث غَرَف نَوم، حَمامَين، مَطبَخ كَبير، غُرفة ضُيوف، غُرفة جُلوس، حَديقة صَغيرة وكراج لِسيارتَين

Describe your house.

Our house has two floors.

My house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a big kitchen, a guest room, a living room, a small backyard, and a two-car garage.


.نَحنُ نَسكُن في الطابِق الرَّابِع

.شَقتي فيها غُرفتين نَوم، حَمام واحِد، غُرفة جُلوس صَغير، مَطبَخ مُتَوسِط الحَجِم وبلكونة

We live on the fourth floor.

My apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a small living room, a medium-sized kitchen, and a balcony.

How would you describe your “dream house” بَيْت الأحلام? 🏠
