1. Hi!

    How do you call these "booths" in which you get changed when you go to the swimming pool?

    I had thought of "Locker room", but i actually think a locker room is quite a large room where several people get changed in (like football players for example).

    Whereas i want the name of the "booth" in which only one person can enter and get changed.

    Thanks!

    Maybe "cabana." It's a small shelter/tent on the beach or by a pool. It can be used for shelter or changing.
     
  4. Merci!

    rsweet, i suppose i can't use "cabana" if i'm talking about a "indoor" public swimming pool?

    No, I don't think so. A cabana is a freestanding tent or hut. You could use "changing rooms" though. Are they small little rooms, like the ones used in department stores for trying on clothes? If so, then "changing room" would work.

    It's a "cubicle".

    Perhaps a changing or dressing stall.

    I have always known them as that.
     
  9. Thank you all!

    And yes, rsweet, they're very small rooms like the ones in shops! There's usually room for only one person and you can find a stool. You enter it, lock the door and put on your swimsuit :)
