Online Dictionary

Students need a dictionary to be successful in learning new vocabulary words and there is an online source that is excellent http://www.onelook.com. My students have found this site easy to use and it provides them with enough choices on dictionaries that they can usually find the words they are seeking. Sometimes student dictionaries are not complete and this causes students to look for other sources. Knowing about and using Internet dictionaries can save time for the students as well as the parents.
At Onelook, there are approximately “8,853,196 words in 937 dictionaries indexed“!

Check out the Onelook feature called Reverse Dictionary where you know what the word means but cannot think of the word. You can describe the concept and you will get back related words to what you described.
