Learning Korean can be a tad difficult thus let’s slowly start learning Korean; slowly Koreanize our lives. So I want to go over some basic vocabulary and where better to start than inside our homes. Let’s go over all individual rooms at a time; starting with the bathroom.

Home’s Place of Solitude

I think one of the most beloved rooms in any house is the bathroom. We might not spend most of our day in there, but when we do we often use the time to relax and bring order to our thoughts. It comes then to no surprise that many households spend a lot of money making sure their bathroom is a place where they can truly enjoy a relaxing shower or bath.

Let’s see check out the words for things we have and do in the bathroom.
