I always mix them up, would you like to tell me the difference?
I searched it online and the definitions of those are quite confusing.
Thank you so much:)

    Roughly in order of size, but the categories can overlap;
    • Flyer - one page.
    • Leaflet - one or two pages, perhaps folded.
    • Pamphlet - two or four pages, probably folded and perhaps stapled.
    • Booklet - four pages or more, up to say 50, folded and stapled.
    • Brochure - booklet printed in colour, on glossy paper, for advertising purposes.

    You get an 'instructions booklet' when you buy equipment.
    There will be four pages in your own language and the other 46 will be in ten other European languages.:D
