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?

I love my bags, they are my favourite accessories

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,
