Dictionary App

Merriam Webster logo

We, and definitely our students, live in the 21st Century. They constantly use digital resources and equipment. We will loose them if we only offer them the good, old,  paper-based Dictionary. Teach them how to use Google Translate properly. Besides, there are very good (FREE of charge) dictionaries available for smartphones and tablets. In my opinion, Merriam Webster English Dictionary is one of the best.

Functionalities of the Merriam Webster App:

  • example sentences
  • thesaurus : synonyms and antonyms
  • audio pronunciation
  • voice search
  • when you type in the ´search field´ the App offers alternative suggestions
