Why not nearby ?

Wohnen vs. Leben?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/az_p

wohnen is where you sleep at night; where your address is.

leben is where your life takes place more generally.

If you are born and raised in Berlin, you could equally say Ich lebe/wohne in Berlin. Your life takes place there, and it's where you sleep.

Nebenan is literally next door?

In a previous exercise we were told "nebenan" means across the street.
