I came to know LDOC when I was an English sophomore learning English as a foreign language. I should say, this dictionary has had an immense impact on my learning of English and the way I came to acquire the language. It is not a traditional dictionary but one written by a constellation of well-known and expert linguists who have a long standing in the linguistic theory and practice. Moreover, the material of the dictionary is taken from real-life corpus that keeps the dictionary alive for and a reliable source of information. Now I am a teacher of English and I highly recommend this dictionary to native speakers and foreign learners alike. In addition to the word meanings that it provides, it also gives the contexts in which words are used, real-life examples, pragmatic advices, grammatical and usage notes and British and American pronunciation. It is the dictionary I always recommend my students and colleagues to have whether to improve their conversational skills or hone down their writing abilities and word choice.
