lingro  The coolest dictionary known to hombre

Try  Lingro,   an open content dictionary which allows you to enter a web address and make all of the words on that page clickable for definitions and translation. A clicked word immediately displays its definition from the Lingro dictionary pages. The website looks visually the same within the Lingro window, but all words become clickable.


This is my last discovery, a pronunciation dictionary where words are pronounced by native speakers. It includes all kinds of words, even proper names and it includes words in many different languages.

Do yo know more dictionaries like this one?

Today we are presenting a new entry written by a guest writer, Ola Zur. I hope you enjoy it:

Dictionaries are very important tools in learning English. They can help you learn the meaning, pronunciation and different forms of any new word.

However, it is very important to use a dictionary at your own level. If you use one that is too advanced, you just might find yourself confused! So at the beginning, use good simple dictionary.

The web offers many free dictionaries, but not all of them are appropriate for beginners. Here are two dictionaries that show a simple version of full and advanced dictionaries:

Cambridge Learner’s Dictionary – this is a simple dictionary. It is fast and easy to use.

Merriam-Webster Word Central – this one is quite simple as well. It might have some more data.

Ola Zur is the editor of Really Learn English with Illustrations, an illustrated guide to English.
