    Garage?

    Hi my friends.



    Someone told me : "I'm taking my car to the garage."



    How can I understand that by garage he meant the repairing garage or the garage for housing cars? Does it need further questions ?

    Maral,

    The person speaking to you might have used the word "garage" to mean "a building for keeping one or more cars or other vehicles in."
