How To Talk About The Home In Turkish

Let’s gather around the masa and have a think.
Zuhause auf Türkisch. Frauen lachen zusammen in der Küche. Wörter rund ums Wohnen auf Türkisch

There are many reasons for learning Turkish, and you may not even consider “learning Turkish house vocabulary” to make it onto the list of the top 20. But whether you’re studying the language in order to move to Turkey, or work with Turkish-speaking colleagues, or simply to travel there for a week, you might find yourself reaching for words like “kitchen,” “window” and “chair” way more often than you’d expect.

These are words you’ll need in virtually any kind of situation, ranging from sitting down at a restaurant to communicating with your Airbnb host. But assuming you do get invited to someone’s home, you’ll probably be grateful you committed these terms to memory, especially if your host warns you not to let the dogs out of the bedroom.

Below is a list of the most common Turkish house vocabulary, coupled with audio pronunciations voiced by a native speaker.
