Focus on Fluency: Dictionaries

Are you satisfied with the dictionary that you use to learn English words? There are many dictionaries available on the Internet, but you have to find one that is best for you.  Most of the online dictionaries are made for native speakers and are not the best choices for second language English learners.

Luckily, there are a few very good online dictionaries made just for people who are learning English. These dictionaries include a lot of valuable information that dictionaries for native speakers just don’t have. They show you the way a word is used in context. They show what words are usually used with this word. They give you guides to pronunciation and often have recordings of native speakers pronouncing the word.
