Every aspect of the dictionary, from the way the entries are written to the way the information is presented, has been planned to ensure that it is always user-friendly and helpful. May be used for self-study or in general English classes. Key Features Over 46,000 words, phrases, and meanings The Oxford 3000(tm) - the most useful words to learn - are clearly marked so users can focus on learning the most important words. Users can find what they are looking for and understand it when they do. The dictionary explains difficult words so that students understand the definitions without having to look elsewhere. Shortcuts in longer entries take users straight to the right meaning. New vocabulary-building notes give words on particular topics, as well as synonyms for over-used words like 'nice' and 'good'. 'Help' notes give learners the information they need to avoid errors. 'More' notes encourage users to build on what they know. Photos and drawings clarify difficult words or show the difference between similar words. Sixteen pages of colour illustrations show words in topic groups to help build vocabulary.
