    Please explain me what that means or I'll tell you about the t2 I'm living in :-)
    • 3 Bed Rooms, which is any small-ish room, usually square, and usually devoid of any features except a closet

      2 BAths, which is any room with a toilet, sink, and shower/bathtub in it (if there's only a toilet and sink, it goes by the euphemism "half-bath").

      Living Room, which is any large room with no specific purpose. If there's one of these at the front and back of the house, the one in front will be the living room (which will never be used for anything) and the one in back will be the "den" (where people w
      • A T2 is an appartment with 2 bedrooms. Don't ask me where the T comes from, as I don't know either, nor do any of my cow-orkers O:-)

        Common designations for appartments in Portugal range from T0 to T5, with the number meaning how many bedrooms it has.

        If you're thinking "but where does one sleep, in a T0?" I can tell you that a T0 has only one division, which is a bedroom and a kitchen (basically, it doesn't have a wall separating the two).

        They all have a bathroom.

        You can also find things like a T2+1, or a T1+1. In these cases, the number following the plus sign stands for the number of smaller rooms... I really can't explain it properly, but think of it like "A T2+1 has two bedrooms you can sleep in, plus another one you can also fit a bed into, but you really don't want to do that because it's not very big and doesn't feel like a *real* bedroom, so you'll probably end up using that compartment for something else."

        When you see advertisements, for instance, if the appartment has a living room or anything else, it's usually mentioned in writting. Example: "T3+1 with 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen."
