You shouldn’t always use a dictionary! In this video, I’ll explain when you should use a paper dictionary, an online dictionary, or no dictionary at all! I’ll show how to use your dictionary, and answer the question “which dictionary should I use?”. A dictionary is an incredible tool when you are learning a language, but knowing how to use it is very important. If you use the dictionary correctly, you can learn a word’s definition, spelling, pronunciation, origin, common usage, as well as what part of speech it is. This is a very important lesson for English learners of all levels, and native speakers too.
