    What is the equivalent for the Chinese word"&#23458

    Hi everyone,
    In Chinese there is a word "客厅“which means a room in your house where you receive your guests. I am wondering if there is a corresponding word in English .Is it the word sitting room?
    Thank you!

    My Chinese-English dictionary gives drawing room for 客厅. In this day and age people welcome guests into the living room. A drawing room is a thing of the past.

    All the best, :D
