    pch

    Dear teachers,
    The following is an advertisement of renting a house. What does this Pch mean?

    Heat, Stove, Fridge, HWF, DR, Pch, 1.5 Bathrooms, HUGE!

    Thank you.

    DR= dining room

    HWR seems to be a room: http://homecompany-frankfurt-oder.be....de/houses.htm, but I have never heard the term before

    I confused HWF with HW which means hot water. Right. What does this HWF mean?

    HW does mean that, but not in this example- it is used, but I cannot find the meaning.;-(

    Hm. A chance for me to practice my German.

    :wink:

    (HWR is an acronym with several definitions, but none of them seem relevant.)

    I used the LWB (little white box). OneLook steered me in the right direction.
