After watching our video on Improving Your English Vocabulary, a visitor with the nickname “justreal” asked, “thank u 4 giving me the ways to improve my words. And my question is; what the best dictionary should I use?”
I recommend the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English. It’s online, it’s free, and it’s a great dictionary.
Visit ldoceonline.com. Type the word or phrase that you want to look up. Click search, and you will get your result instantly. We will include a link to the Longman Dictionary below this video.
Before I finish, I want to answer another question.
A visitor named “sally” asked, “how can i learn the symbols of pronunciation in the dictionary?”
About.com has a helpful guide to phonetic symbols. Do a Google search for “about.com phonetic symbols”; the first search result will lead you to a really helpful resource for understanding pronunciation symbols in the dictionary.
Thank you, “justreal” and Sally for your questions. If anybody else has a question for us, please post it at bit.ly/askmyquestion.
Now, I have a question for you. Do you have a dictionary that translates words from your language? What dictionary do you use? Add a comment below this video.
