退房 - tuì fáng – check out

Having already learned about checking in ( 報到 – bào dào – check-in ), we need to learn about checking out.

The first character is 退, tuì meaning to withdraw from. It is pronounced tway with a 4th or falling tone.

The second character is one we already know, 房 fáng meaning room. We have seen this in 单人房 – dān rén fáng – single room and 房間 - fáng jiān –room , as well as 双人房 – shuāng rén fáng – double room and 普通房 – pǔ tōng fáng – standard room.

It is pronounced fang with a 2nd or rising tone.
