We have a fine selection of videos for you to find out. At the end of the lesson more advanced English students can read up on some idioms and answer some quiz questions.
There are regional variations, some items may have different names around the world. For example in America the term 'sweater' is used instead of the British 'jumper' or 'jersey' and pants instead of trousers. This selection of videos will give you quite a good overview of the different names used.
