Longman’s Dictionary of English Language and Culture


I love Longman dictionaries – in my opinion they are the best out there. The one above is my favourite because:

  • it has words from every country where English is spoken
  • it has slang, idioms, cultural references, events,  (useful if you are watching TV, reading a book or newspaper)
  • it has graphs, diagrams and photographs.
  • has encyclopaedic entries from politics, history, geography, science, the arts and popular culture (below is the page on ‘The Wild West’)
  • it comes with DVD
