    Study

    "He works in his study until five o'clock."

    It is mentioned earlier that in the book that he is a writer.

    What does "study" mean?

    Does it mean a place where he studies or practice writing or painting in.

    From the book " Headway, written by John Soars and Liz Soars.

    Re: Study

    A study is usually a room (generally at home) where someone (often a scholar or writer) works, reads, studies, or does research.

    When I think of a study, the picture in my mind is a room filled with books and papers, with a desk.

    A lot of people call a small room with their computer and bookshelves a study.
