I'm having problems with containers? Can you please help me? Thank you.


1) I bought a 6-pack of eggs, a packet (?) of cow's milk cheese and 3,5 ounces (100 gr.) of cooked ham, a bottle of washing liquid and one of floor cleaner.
2) I also bought a two-pack of yoghurt, a floor cloth.
How do you call a sponge you use to do the washing-up?
3) What unit of measure do you use when buying fruit? Do you say "half a pound" of peaches/pears/apples?
4) What do you call a small plastic container you use to hold apricots or peaches?
5) What kind of meat are you likely to find in an American supermarket? (This is a real question):

  1. 1) I bought a 6-pack of eggs, a package of cow's milk cheese, 3.5 ounces (100 gr.) of cooked ham, a bottle of washing liquid and one of floor cleaner.


    2) I also bought a two-pack of yogurt and a dust mop.

    How do you call a sponge you use to do the washing-up? I call it the kitchen sponge.

    3) What unit of measure do you use when buying fruit? Do you say "half a pound" of peaches/pears/apples?
    Or a pound. Or a bag if it's prepackaged.

    4) What do you call a small plastic container you use to hold apricots or peaches?
    A basket or a container.

    5) What kind of meat are you likely to find in an American supermarket?
    All kinds!! Beef: hamburger, steaks, ribs, roasts. Chicken: whole chickens, half chickens, legs, thighs, breasts, wings, tenderloins. Pork: chops, roasts. Lamb: chops, roasts. And many others, to be sure.

  2. We also have turkeys, turkey parts, bacon, and sausages in our supermarkets. A French guest was surprised, though, because our stores did not have rabbit.
