Learn words for things in bathrooms by doing these exercises.


Language level

Intermediate: B1


There are 3 bathrooms in my house. There are many different things in the bathrooms. There are mirror, toothpaste, toothbrush, washbasin, toilet, toilet papaer, bath and shower.

I have a traditional bathroom in my house, the bath, toilet, washbasin and mirror in the same area, and i have just one bathroom

Yes, it does. My bathroom is not as good as the picture above. Because i live in the village and i am poor. So, there's no bath, shower, tap, and i don't use toilet like that, it's too expensive for me. And I (or we) don't use toilet paper to clean-you know-after poop because there's still a lot of water here, and it's free.

Wow, so different...

I want to ask about grammar. In grammar section it says that 'have to' is the obligation that comes from somebody else. it's a law or a rule. But how's about "I have to go" ? Is that 'a rule' that I have to go? Is sentence "I must to go" commonly use in Britain?

I hope y'all understand what I mean.
Love You LoL

Hello Ferdiana,

The rule you mention is generally true, i.e. 'must' typically expresses the idea that the speaker has decided something is necessary, whereas 'have to' often expresses that the need comes from outside. Another important thing to consider is that 'must' sounds rather formal, especially in some varieties of English (for example, American English), so 'have to' is a lot more common in informal speech for many people.

'I must go' is certainly used in the UK, as is 'I have to go'. I'd encourage you to look for how 'must' and 'have to' are used as you read and listen to English, which should help you begin to make sense of them.

Hello Ferdiana,

I would actually suggest using some our listening or reading skills pages more than using our grammar section. Both the English grammar and Quick grammar sections are references -- they are not organised as lessons, they are more like a dictionary that you check in. I'd suggest trying LearnEnglish podcasts (audio) or Word on the Street (video): both have native speakers speaking about different topics and there are transcripts of what they say plus grammar, vocabulary and comprehension exercises to help you learn from them. When you want to know more about the grammar in one of those exercises, you could then look for more information in one of our grammar sections.

Or you're also welcome to ask us!

By the way, a 'bidet' is something people use to clean themselves instead of using toilet paper. If you do an internet search, I'm sure you can find a photo of one.

In italy we have also the bidet to clean ourselves, in other country the people don't do that

The bidet? What's that?

a tap next to the toilet to wash the buttocks.
