Lost in Meaning? Let Me Show You how to Find Meaning through Vocabulary


Plenty of times when learning a new language, I felt lost, going backwards instead of making linguistic progress. (because the cliche is that one is supposed to make progress going forward by accumulating new words - right?)

Plenty of times when I needed to cross check meaning, look up a meaning, a word, a means of communication. 

Plenty of times when my students say "I ..... don't know how to say in English.... ".

Plenty of times when my learners need to expand their vocabulary, enrich their vocabulary and escape the "nice" cliches of everyday use. 

Vocabulary gives learners power to express themselves, to express their voices as they well wish. 

Your Dictionary is just what one needs - not only does it help with meanings, but includes a thesaurus, which is really useful. 

Your Dictionary is more than another online dictionary as well.  It includes a page for references such as abbreviations and acronyms, and a plenty more for those who take time to go through this useful page. 



You will also find quotes organised by themes and famous people,
and best of all, a variety of word games.











Teachers can use Your Dictionary as a rich resource for lessons, while learners can also use Your Dictionary to broaden vocabulary, learn more about who said what and challenge their friends to vocabulary games. 

Learning takes time, effort and dedication. 

Vocabulary learning takes a lot of repetition as well. 

In the end, we all learn. 

As long as will to learn is fostered and opportunities of practice are provided.
