    Dictionary
    Written specially for students of American English, the dictionary contains almost 80,000 words and phrases, and covers all you need to know about American language and culture. Over 50,000 of these words give a real-life pronunciation, and there is a facility which allows you to record your own voice; so you can listen to the pronunciation given, record your own version, then see how it compares with the original.

    Common Errors section
    The Common Errors section will help you avoid common mistakes which many learners of English make. You can use it to help you with your homework, or to find out more about a word or phrase. Every entry in this section shows two examples of the word in use - one using it correctly, and one using it incorrectly.
