Genki Chapter 3 Difference between いえ and うち

Postby BlueStreak » Sat 05.05.2012 4:37 am

Hi, based on the vocabulary list いえ and うち means home. What is the difference between the both?

Here are two old threads that go over the issue and should resolve your question. :) If not, let us know. ^_^

In short, いえ means "house", and うち means "home", usually one's own home... but the two can be used interchangeably in a variety of ways. The threads above cover that a bit. I hope this helps.
