    Description

    This book is a comprehensive and updated dictionary for advanced learners of the English language.

    Summary Of The Book

    Mainly targeted at advanced level learners of ESL (English as a Second Language) or EFL (English as a Foreign Language), this book has an extensive list of words, with current vocabulary updates. Besides this, it contains many special features that make it a good choice for a contemporary, advanced dictionary.

    The dictionary provides clear definitions and contains over 170,000 words and phrases and examples. Several hundred new words that have entered common usage in recent years have been included to make the dictionary up-to-date. Examples of new words that have been included are clickable, 9/11 etc.

    The dictionary contains several useful sections that help learners improve their language skills. The Common Mistakes section identifies the most common mistakes made by learners. It is based on errors committed by learners in ESOL Exams conducted by Cambridge.

    The Word Partner section helps readers learn how to use words effectively and correctly, in the way a native learner would use them. Thesaurus boxes provide better alternatives for overused words. This helps learners sound more natural when they speak. 

    The most frequently used words have been highlighted so that readers can add to their list of vital, basic vocabulary.

    Extra Help sections contain maps, illustrations, and photos to further clarify meanings. The Let's Talk section focuses on conversational skills.

    The accompanying CD contains many useful extra features. It contains pronunciation guides for words, giving both the English and American pronunciations. The Advanced Search feature allows the user to search for particular types of content. For instance, it can be used to find just idioms or parts of speech sections.

    The SMART Thesaurus feature lists words with similar meanings for any word chosen. The QUICKfind feature shows definitions for a word in a small window when the word is pointed at by the mouse.

    SUPERwrite tools help in developing writing skills by providing grammar and other help. The CD also contains seven types of word exercises and 36 picture exercises. The sentences for the word exercises are randomly generated. The exercises can be printed out for use in the classroom or at home for self-practice.

    Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary is a great aid to help improve vocabulary, and acquire a deeper knowledge of the language. The user of the dictionary learns skills that will help them become a better speaker and writer of English.

    A must for every household

    Sometimes it makes sense to look at the definitions of words. But my purpose is slightly different. I wanted a software that replaces the MS Word and also provides me the right pronunciation for unfamiliar words. I found the CALD3 software comes free along with the dictionary. It fulfills my purpose. Somehow I was expecting more from a Cambridge dictionary, but however I realize I am not going to study English lit, so this should be fine with me.

    Fabulous!

    The dictionary is amazing. The pages are slick and shiny and is great to use. Best for the advance learners like that of B.A and M.A. The size is big and weighs probably a kg. But its better than the Oxford dictionary. Thanks Flipkart. :-)
