Office supplies: that surrounds us in the office

Many of us have a passion for buying notebooks, pens, markers and can spend hours choosing new accessories for the job. Shops with our favorite stationery called stationery or office supplies shops. Look closely at the picture. How many objects you can call in English, not peeping in the dictionary? Half? More? Well, not bad. But these are the words of our daily environment, so I propose to review them.

My attention was caught by the name of a large paper clips Bulldog clip. Nothing to do with the breed of dog that word does not have. The subject has received its name in honor of a registered trademark, which started producing such clips in 1944 in the UK.

Also drew attention to the video, which collected a lot of useful words on the subject. Do not just look and write down the words themselves, who were strangers. So more likely you are to remember them.

The more we use in the office? During meetings and conferences using different equipment and machinery. Let’s examine these concepts:

Things in the office
Word Translation Picture
Computer PC
Laptop A laptop
Telephone Phone
Fax machine Fax machines
Calculator Calculator
Printer Printer
Projector Projector
Remote control Remote control
Screen Shield
Loudspeakers Columns
Microphone Microphone
Laser pointer Laser pointer
Flip chart Lecture notes
Clipboard The tablet with paper clips
White board Whiteboard
Marker Marker
Highlighter Marker text highlighter

And in the end, as always, I suggest you test that will show how well you remember the words of the article.
