    Toys and sports equipment

    Dear ALL,

    I'm do volunteering in a charity organisation in the Toys division. We receive many material donations every day e.g. racing car set, musical instrument, fitness equipment and playground items.... I would like to learn more English vocabularies. As an Asian, of course, some items are unknown to me.

    Does anyone give me websites?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello here the French,

    I think you can find vocabulary on the web, type toys in Yahoo or another, perhaps you can type Americans or English brand toys.

    Hope you find your way, don't give up.

    Have a nice day.

    I, too, would suggest simply Googling "musical instruments English names" or something like that. I don't know of specific websites that just list vocabulary.

    Otherwise, I imagine you can come up with many examples of instruments, fitness equipment in your own language - simply look them up in your dictionary!

    Well done on your voluntary work, by the way!

    What about goinig to a retail Web site, like Toys R Us, or Target, or even Amazon, and looking through the toy categories there? They will have pictures next to the items for purchase so you can make an immediate connection.

    Re: Toys and sports equipment

    Thanks for all advices.

    I do not have Chinese dictionary because I cannot write (already forgot) many Chinese words.

    I find some pictures and vocabularies on appendices in my Oxford Advanced learner's English-Chinese dictionary (6th edition).

    I tried google yesterday. I have searched "racing car set", as a result, I found online auctions websites. Pictures are very small and the contents are very brief.

    Anyway, I'll try to visit websites like, Toys R Us, Target and Tesco.

    Have a nice day.
