Meetings are one of the most common events in the workplace. We meet in our own offices or remotely, and an increasing number of meetings gather attendees from all over the world. That’s certainly why I am more and more often asked for the vocabulary about meetings in my English and my French classes.

Here is a list of the 15 words about meetings I’m most often asked for:


the meeting room la salle de réunion
the conference table la table de conférence
the flip chart le tableau à feuilles
the whiteboard le tableau blanc
a marker un feutre / un marqueur
an eraser un effaceur
a screen un écran
the remote control la télécommande
the projector le projecteur
attendees les participants
the speaker l’intervenant(e)
the minutes le compte-rendu
the agenda l’ordre du jour
introductions le tour de table, les présentations
to attend a meeting assister à une réunion
