Floor

The street-level floor is called the
ground floor or the first floor. In North
that the number 13 is unlucky. For
this reason, some buildings,
especially older ones, do not have a
thirteenth floor.
Refrigerator

The refrigerator door often serves as
a family posting area for important
memos, schedules, reminders of
appointments, “to do” lists of
household chores, and shopping lists.
It also often serves as a gallery of
family photographs and children’s
artwork. These items are often held to
the refrigerator door by decorative
magnets.
Bedding
A bed generally consists of a box spring
and a mattress, which are usually raised
above the floor on a frame. Bed linen
consists of sheets and pillowcases. When
making a bed, a fitted sheet is put on first.
It has corners sewn with elastic to keep the
sheet tightly attached to the mattress. This
is followed by a flat sheet, which does not
have elastic and is usually tucked under
the mattress at the foot. Over this, a
blanket and sometimes a comforter or
Dry cleaners

Company Benefits
Benefits are provided by an employer as part of a
job. They include programs that protect the health
and well-being of the employee’s family, such as
health insurance, life insurance, and childcare
services. Benefits may also include paid time off
for vacations, holidays, and illness. Some benefit
plans offer family or parental leave, a period of
paid time off after the birth of a child, following an
adoption or foster care placement, or in the case
of a family member becoming seriously ill or
injured. Generally, money is deducted from each
paycheck to cover part of the cost of these
programs.
Smoke detector
An electronic machines that make a loud noise to
alert people when there is smoke in a building.
Many state and local laws require all residential
buildings to have smoke detectors. Smoke
detectors should be located on the ceiling, ideally
in a hallway near the bedrooms. Because cooking
smoke can set off smoke detectors, they should
not be placed in the kitchen. It is important to test
the smoke detector batteries once a month and
replace them once a year. Smoke detectors are
inexpensive, usually about \$10, and are available
in most home improvement stores.
Co-payment
Co-payment: A payment made by an individual
who has health insurance, usually at the time a
service is received, to offset some of the cost of
care. Co-payments are a common feature of HMO
(Health Maintenance Organization) and PPO
(Preferred Provider Organization) health plans in
the US. Co-payment size may vary depending on
the service, generally with low copayments
required for visits to a regular medical provider
and higher payments for services received in the
emergency room, the latter intended to discourage
insured persons from using the emergency room
unless it is absolutely necessary. Also called co-
insurance.
Dress code
Smart casual means dress casual or
nice casual clothing, not jeans and a
T-shirt. Smart is a common adjective
used in the U.K. to describe
someone’s appearance or dress. In
the U.S., people would use the words
nice, great, or stylish
a decoration or work of art which has
many parts that move freely in the air,
Being a guest
When invited to someone’s house for diner, it is
customary in the U.S. to bring something. If
you’re not sure what to bring, it is perfectly
acceptable to ask the host. However, the host
will probably tell you not to bring anything. In that
case, you decide whether you still want to bring
something small, like chocolates or candies for
country would be a nice gesture.
Also, in the U.S., people usually arrive about 15
minutes after the stated invite time, but not
earlier. In the U.K., people tend to arrive only a
few minutes after the invite time. And in either
country if the invitation says sharp, e.g., 8 o’clock
sharp, that means you must be there right on
time at 8.
Baby shower
Traditionally, a baby shower is held only for the
mother-to-be, and only women attend. The
original intent was for women to share wisdom
and lessons on the art of becoming a mother.
Many people choose to have baby showers for
both parents, and some people have a men-only
a celebration and gift reception is held only after
the birth of a child.
Traditionally, baby showers were given only for
the family's first child, but over time, it has
become more common to hold them for
Even when a shower is held for only the first child,
it is not uncommon for a parent to have more than
one baby shower, such as one with friends and
another with co-workers.
Wedding

Throwing rice used to be customary
at weddings in the U.S., but it is
dangerous to birds, so most people
nowadays throw rose petals or rice
( can break down naturally and wont’
harm the environment)
Seller Financing
is a loan provided by the seller of a property
or business to the purchaser. Usually, the
purchaser will make some sort of down
payment to the seller, and then make
installment payments (usually on a monthly
basis) over a specified time, at an agreed-
upon interest rate, until the loan is fully repaid.
There are no universal requirements
mandated for seller financing. In order to
protect both the buyer's and seller's interests,
a legally-binding Purchase Agreement should
be drawn up with the assistance of an
attorney and then signed by both parties.
Number 13

The street-level floor is called the
ground floor or the first floor. In North
that the number 13 is unlucky. For
this reason, some buildings,
especially older ones, do not have a
thirteenth floor.
Sales tax
In the United States and Canada, a sales
tax is added to the price of most products,
although essential items such as food and
clothing are sometimes exempt. The sales
tax is not included in the advertised price of
goods, and it is paid at the time of
purchase. This tax varies by state or
province and ranges from 5 to 8 percent of
the purchase price. For example, with a 5
percent sales tax, the final price of a \$9.99
item is \$10.49.
A rain check
Rain check began as a baseball term. If a game
was cancelled because of bad weather, fans could
use rain checks to attend a subsequent game.
This term is now commonly used in stores. If an
item is advertised at a sale price but is sold out or
is not available, customers can ask for a rain
check. When the item becomes available,
customers with a rain check can buy the item at
the sale price, even if it is no longer on sale. The
term is also used idiomatically to mean that you
can’t accept an invitation right now but would like
to accept it later. For example, if someone invites
you to an event you can say I’m sorry, but I’m busy
tomorrow. Can I take a rain check?
