I’m moving out! Posted by on May 27, 2013 in Vocabulary

Hello, everybody!

http://ow.ly/lrwph

I’m moving out to a new apartment and I had to buy all my furniture again (long story!) so I thought I’d share some house vocabulary with you guys today since I’m in the middle of a bit of a mess!

I’ve been having to deal with eletricistas (electricians), serralheiros (locksmiths) and people of the sort so I thought, “Why not share some of the vocabulary I’m using in Portuguese with my readers?”, so here’s a very useful list of vocabulary related to the house and its objects!
