  • Excellent Reference Dictionary for English Learners

    By Wizard Archer
    I’ve been using it for well over 4 years, ever since the OLAD 8th was released and then upgraded to its 9th edition! This is the best and most liable source for a, as it said, LEARNER! Not sure if it is the best catch for a native speaker, yet for all bilingual and multilingual speakers I found it the best dictionary in the market! My advice to those preparing for English tests such as IELTS, TOEFL, PTE end etc. is to buy the Oxford Collocation Dictionary as well to develop their skill in writing an essay, as required in all tests, as well as that of reading. Great job guys!
