Mansion and Apartment

In Japanese language, we often hear a mantion which someone lives in. In that case, English speakers would think of a huge house like it has 10 rooms with a swimming pool in the backyard. So, we should call it an apartment instead of mantion. 
We usually think an apartment as small one, but in English, apartments come in all sizes and prices. Some apartments can cost thousands of dollars a month to rent. This kinds of misunderstanding are everywhere between English and Japanese.  That makes learning languages more interesting.
