The scattered mind of a borderline ego maniac
My dad has lived in flats.
Pretty nice flats. I think flats here are not considered very nice.
Actually, we do have "flats" in the US, but the term usually refers to those in older buildings that are converted into apartments, such as the old Victorian-style homes in San Francisco. (Likewise, "lofts" are usually made out of old industrial buildings, whereas "apartments" are built just for the purpose of being apartments.)
I think I would like San Francisco!
back home in Singapore...80%(almost) of the population lives in flats..the setbacks neighbours hardly talk to each other and it's extremely small...more suitable for rabbits!
I hope I'll for ever live in a house. Or at least in *un appartement au rez de chaussee avec jardin...How blue is the sky in NZ, SN !!!sbbophbernadette soubirou
Most of time I call them apartments. But, like Space Nakji said, there are other times when "flat" is used. Thank you for the daily vocabulary lesson!
