    恩~~跟你解釋的意思差不多 不過

    restroom: A room equipped with toilets and lavatories for public use.

    restroom是給大眾使用 只有馬桶跟洗手台

    bathroom: A room equipped with facilities for taking a bath or shower and usually also containing a sink and toilet.

    bathroom: 是指有馬通跟洗手台還有設備更完整的設施在裡面 有衛浴設施.

    在外面如果你要找廁所 你要問 : Excuse me, could you point me to the restroom?

    or Excuse me, do you know where the restroom is?

    比較好聼啦

    不一定restroom就是廁所

    但是休息室可以讓你休息...女生可以化妝....其實看電影

    美國上班族爲了能偷個休息時間...就會跑到廁所....

    如果講Toilet...太明確了.....如果是餐廳...你寫Toilet會聯想到...所以就用restroom

    有些加油站會寫Toilet...
