Hello Lofu,


Thanks for your question. 😉

Both 樓 (lau2) and 層 (ceng4) mean the floor of a building. But when you want to refer to the specific floor, like 1st floor, their expressions are slightly different. You need to use this pattern for 層 (ceng4): 第 (dai6) + number + 層 (ceng4). Therefore, 一樓 (jat1 lau2) = 第一層 (dai6 jat1 ceng4) = 1st floor.

When 樓 (lau2) alone, it means a building. For example, 呢棟樓 (ni1 dung6 lau2).
