VOCABULARY – Stairs vs. Steps vs. Ladder

These three words are often confusing for Portuguese speakers.

  • Stairs (escadas) usually connect floors in a building.
  • Ladder (escada) is a moveable structure used for climbing up or down.
  • Steps (degraus) are usually found outside a building, and are also the individual levels on a ladder or stairs.
