Additional Information

Oxford's new American Dictionaries for learners of English offer students a dictionary that is just right for their level. Written specifically for students working to improve their English language skills, these dictionaries support English learners, struggling readers, and special education students with Basic to Advanced levels. Based on extensive research with U.S. teachers and language-learning experts, these three new dictionaries help students:

Transition from picture dictionaries more easily by using words they can understand for definitions and using illustrations for more difficult words.

Learn content area words from math, chemistry, biology, geography, etc.

Focus on the Academic Word List and the Oxford 3000TM(the most important words to learn in English).

Extend their vocabulary with extra help note boxes throughout the dictionary-help with related vocabulary synonyms, topic collocations, Academic Word List collocations, and word families, affixes, and more.

Write different types of texts in English, from resumes to e-mails to essays, with the Writing Tutor (Intermediate and Advanced levels only).

Included in each dictionary is a CD-ROM containing a separate Picture Dictionary and a Topic Dictionary, allowing students to search for words by content area or topic, and create their own topic dictionaries. The full A-Z dictionary is included with spoken headwords and a 'record your own voice' function for practicing pronunciation.

In accordance with foreword, this dictionary is for low intermediate learners. OBAD is easy to navigate, basic language used in each entry. There are many photos and illustrations that support definitions throughout the whole dictionary.

And, what very important for learners, the word's meaning is written in simple English. Example sentences help you to understand a word and show you how it used.

Finally a very good dictionary for an italian learner here in USA since few months: well printed, very easy to handle, most important words in red, I LIKE IT!
I haven't seen them all but I absolutely LOVE this one for ESL students of AMERICAN English. Phenomenal for too many reasons to list, but which the book's description mentions... wish I had more energy to go into all the details but I would pay triple the price to get this book. It is perfect for my beginning ESL (adult) students.
