Spanish Word of the Day
Thursday August 21, 2014

sala, noun:
room

La sala is a very versatile word, and can refer to many different types of room.

en la sala de estar
in the parlor, in the living room

la sala de profesores
the staffroom

la sala de espera
the waiting room

sala de chat
chatroom

But you can also use it to refer to spaces which we wouldn’t call rooms at all in English:

una sala de fiestas
a nightclub

Salas de fiestas are usually nightclubs where entertainment is provided.
And at airports, you may have to wait in la sala de embarque, the departure lounge.
