My problem was that there were flashcards available for basic household objects but my students needed more advanced vocabulary of items that they see every day around them in their houses but they didn’t know what they were called in English. I was fed up of going to the internet to find a picture every time we came across an item they didn’t know.

Included here are 150 flashcards of intermediate and advanced vocabulary of items around the home. I used both clip art and real photographs depending upon which I felt was a very clear depiction of the item I was presenting. It is in PDF format with two flashcards per page and includes:

  • the text of the vocabulary word plus any common synonyms;
  • where there is a common British English and a common American English alternative for the object, both are given (for example, wardrobe and closet);
  • an index (table of contents) in alphabetical order – clicking the word in the index hyperlinks to the correct page for the item. On every picture page, there is a home button that hyperlinks back to the index.

When I used these as a vocabulary lesson (grade 11 ESL / EFL students in south east Asia) projecting to the projector screen I was surprised at the positive reaction. It must be that they see these things all the time so it’s very relevant to their lives but nobody has ever taught them what the objects are called in English. Some are guessable with the teachers help, for example a bottle opener, so maybe part of it is they enjoyed guessing or showing what they knew. Interestingly, some of the very weak often disengaged students were very focused on this, and sometimes they knew objects that stronger students didn’t know. Anyway, with that in mind, I created a video so that you can use it on a screen in your classroom.

The video (MP4) is nearly 40 minutes in duration and I present it in the same way I taught in class:

  • Firstly, a picture of the item is shown and then there is a pause of five seconds (it gives students time to recall, guess, shout out ideas);
  • then, the name of the object appears (along with any relevant synonyms);
  • next, there is spoken audio of the pronunciation of the word in a British English male accent;
  • a short pause later and the audio of the word is repeated (it gives student time to follow and say the pronunciation of the word out loud).

Here’s a sample of the kind of vocabulary you can expect:

  • blanket
  • bolt
  • chest of drawers
  • clothes horse
  • corkscrew
  • cot
  • door handle
  • hat stand
  • hob
  • latch
  • peeler
  • radiator
  • razor
  • saucer
  • stool
  • towels… and so on

All common every day things but not well known among second or foreign language learners.

To summarize:

  • 150 Flashcards, 2 per A4 page, PDF format
  • Video with audio of pronunciation

If you intend to laminate the flashcards, fold back the card/paper so the text is on the back of the picture. If you trim the edges, you’ll get 4 flashcards into 1 A4 laminate pouch.

I hope this is a useful resource for you and your students.
