For learners of English

Oxford’s dictionaries for learners of English give the help and support you need to expand vocabulary and use words correctly.  We explain words using language learners understand, with illustrations for difficult words, and help with grammar and pronunciation.  Most of our dictionaries are available with a dictionary CD-ROM, and you can now access a number of our dictionaries on the move with our dictionary apps.
