English Dictionaries for non-native speakers and English as a Second Language (ESL) Dictionaries: These dictionaries provide more information on how to use the word in a sentence. They also use simple words in their definitions, so that someone with a limited English vocabulary can still understand them. We have the following ESL dictionaries: Cambridge, Collins Cobuild, Longman, Macmillan, NTC, and Oxford. Because these dictionaries have easy to understand definitions, native speakers of English often use them as well. For native speakers we recommend the Macmillan.
