A teacher in Pennsylvania liked the COBUILD dictionaries because they explain the meaning of a word instead of just defining it. She wanted all the teachers in her school to have one but the school did not have the funds. She convinced the PTA to raise the funds and due to our current sale they were able to get each teacher the Collins COBUILD Concise Learner Dictionary and the Webster's Young Readers! (The picture is of the principal of the school and president of the PTA!)

Most high schools and middle schools prefer this dictionary over the Collins COBUILD Advanced Learners Dictionary. It is a more extensive dictionary but it also defines some offensive words that some schools may wish to avoid.

For elementary schools we recommend the Collins COBUILD New Student Dictionary. Most of the definitions are the same but in some case they are simpler and the grammar categories are much simpler. We have sample pages of both dictionaries so you can compare them.

New to this edition: The words being defined are highlighted in blue so you can find the word you are looking for faster.

From our customers:

"As a Special Education Teacher, I love these dictionaries because they are much easier for my students to understand than your standard dictionary, be it paperback, or hardcover. The COBUILD Learner's Dictionary is an excellent educational tool." K. W., Bronx, NY
