Beginner vocabulary exercise – basic office supplies

Common office supplies - vocabulary exerciseWhat do you have on and in your desk?

What do you use regularly in your daily work life?

Pens, pencils, markers, paper clips, folders, a diary perhaps?

Use a dictionary to find out the names of all the things on your desk, and then label them with their English names using sticky notes.

Tip: Sticky notes are fabulous for learning new words – my house was covered in them when I started learning Japanese and then German!

Alternatively, use this Beginner office supplies vocabulary exercise (PDF) to learn (or teach) the English names of some office supplies.
