"Where is the toilet?"
Translation:Onde é o banheiro?
you can use that in a very informal way. cadê = where is/are (cadê o banheiro?)
aonde demands a destination (you could add "to" in English). Aonde você está indo? - Where are you going (to)?
It appears that banheiro has the same meaning as in American English where bathroom can also mean toilet. This dual use is extremely rare in the U.K. and confused me.As far as I'm aware toalete (which duolingo rejects) and a casa de banho also mean toilet in Portugues. Which usage is most common in Brazil?
yes, banheiro = toilet, bathroom, restroom. Some people also say "toalete" is used to refer to restrooms, but "casa de banho" never in Brazil, maybe in Portugal.
The english to be translated should be " where is the bathroom" , nobody asks for the toilet. When i translated toilet, was marked wrong.
