Victor’s briefcase


What’s in my briefcase? Well, there’s a newspaper – a Ukrainian newspaper – and there’s a dictionary – my Ukrainian/English dictionary. I have some pens, three, I think. Also I have a notebook for vocabulary. I write words in that every day. And of course I have my keys – my car keys and my house keys. Oh yes, very important, there are some photos of my family, my wife, and my daughter. And there’s my mobile. I phone home to Kyiv every night. That’s all, I think.
