What's the difference between schoolbag and rucksack?

Hi O'Prata,

There are a couple of differences.

  • A schoolbag is any bag for carrying school things. It can be different types of bag, like a bag you carry on your back (a rucksack or backpack), or a bag that hangs from your shoulder (a satchel).
  • A rucksack can be for any purpose, not just for carrying school things.

So, a rucksack is also a schoolbag if you use it to carry your school things.

Does that make sense?

Very nice. Would like to know why the BACKPACK is called RUCKSACK.

Hi Vanessa Suzuki,

Rucksack and backpack are two names for the same thing. You can use either one :)

Best wishes,

Jonathan

Hello Anwar68,

I think you mean 'backpack' here.

Backpack is the more general word. It can describe any kind of back you wear on your back with straps going over your shoulders and under your arms. It could be a small thing you take to work with a laptop and a few pens and books, or it could be something larger for travelling.

Rucksacks are a type of backpack which are used for hiking, trekking and camping. They are designed for outdoor use and for carry clothes, a tent, camping equipment and so on.

I don´t usually wear accesories. I use some but they're basics and also depends on the season or where I go. I always wear glasses because I can't see very well without them.

Yeah I'm very familiar with belt as a boy. The most interesting thing is to share with you is "I wear belt even when my pant is fit or tighten because in the beginning I used to wear belt to fit my pant with waist and now I wear belt to feel comfort as I'm habitat with it.

I love wearing silk scarves. These are my favorite accessories. But I have one that is very special to me. It's a beautiful silver necklace with a small christ on it, which I got when I was baptized. This little thing is always with me.

My special accessory, if i can say that, is my rucksack. It is a known brand, black and spacious, that's why I use it for uni. It gives me the ability to carry big books, my notebooks, my laptop, other writing stuff and even a bottle of water, umbrella and my mobile phone. It was a gift by my uncle Jim and has made my life easier..

Yes, I have many accessories that I like . Among them, I like my bear doll so much. My first student gave me this one in 2016. This is my first time that someone gave me bear doll. I really like this one and I put it my bed until now and it is my friend and my partner for every moment of my life. I tell all about myself to it whenever I am happy or I am sad.

I had bought a belt bag when I was going to Vini Vici concert. I needed a small and safe bag because I knew it was so crowd and dynamic. My belt bag is made from jean and its zipper is red. I deem competible the colours. I can wear it with all my cloths.

yes i have my lovable accessory....that is my fabulous Watch. I liked to wear my watch on my right hand only...Whenever i see that watch, it remembers "this moment(good or bad situation) is not permanent.. one day it will change.." so i enjoy each & every moment in my life by doing the things what i love & to save those moments as sweet memories in my heart & mind. Not only that watch gives memories but also that watch is a super motivator...Think that watch is repair which means stopped.... stopped watch is right twice a day..yup nothing in the world is ever completely wrong..do you still think a broken person cannot be productive? LIFE TEACHES US TO MAKE A GOOD USE OF TIME.. WHILE TIME TEACHES US THE VALUE OF LIFE.
