Thankfully, most of the rooms you will find in a house or apartment have been named quite logically in German. Take "das Wohnzimmer" and "das Schlafzimmer" for example, literally "the living room" and "the sleeping room" respectively. Remember to learn the gender (article) alongside each noun! This will save you loads of time in the future.

Your knowledge of noun genders plays a gigantic role in your ability to correctly apply German grammar rules. We have color coded the nouns on our site so you can more easily learn the articles that go with each noun, both improving your vocabulary and giving you a huge advantage when it comes to accurately constructing German sentences.
