Vendredi de Vocabulaire: L’Immobilier

Some of the vocabulary I’ve encountered most recently has to deal with real estate, or l’immobilier (masc). As with most places, there are a few basic types of property one can buy.

  • une maison – a house
  • un terrain – a piece of land
  • un appartement – a condo or apartment. I think un condominium is only used in Canada.

You can also buy un immeule, which is a building, often containing multiple units. (Un meuble, incidentally, is a piece of furniture.)

Most of these words are also associated with this one: rêver. I’ll let you figure out what that one means.
