Chão - the floor indoors. Terra, rua, calçada, etc. - outdoors

You know how in Spanish the word suelo is synonymous with floor and ground? Is this the same case for chão?

Yes. And we also have solo = soil.

What is the difference between floor and ground?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jayway223

Floor is the ground in a house or building. Ground is the ground outside in nature.

Hope that I didn't confuse you...

You didn't confuse me, you helped me with my doubt. Thanks a lot.

Two examples of using 'chão'. The first in- the decond outdoors.
