OUTSKIRTS: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone.

In example 2 of yesterday's Daily Vitamin we used the word outskirts, which we will study today.

Today's word is: outskirts

Meaning: the parts of a city or town that are furthest from the centre.

Example 1 (example 2 yesterday):
Our house once stood alone on the outskirts of the city; however, with the recent growth, we are now surrounded by many other buildings.

Example 2:
They live in a large house on the outskirts of Madrid.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin section on our website.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
