GROUND FLOOR: meaning and examples

Good morning,

Yesterday we looked at the difference between the words ground and floor. Today we look at a use of these words together.

Today's expression is: ground floor

It means: the bottom level of a building.*

*A floor, in this case, refers to the levels in a building (for example, the first floor, the second floor, the fourth floor, etc.). We also use storey to refer to the levels of a building (for example, bottom storey, second storey, etc.).

Example 1:
Alex lives on the ground floor. He has a very nice flat, with a garden and a large terrace.

Example 2:
Anthony was on the fifty-first storey when the fire broke out in the skyscraper. That must have been very scary.

Example 3:
You cannot take the lift from the first floor to the bottom floor. You have to take the stairs.
