Welcome to Longman Dictionaries Online
Longman Dictionaries online is a premier dictionary website that allows you to access the best of Longman Learners' dictionaries, whatever you do, wherever you are.
The first dictionary to launch is the new Longman Collocations Dictionary and Thesaurus.
The Longman Collocations Dictionary and Thesaurus offers vocabulary practice in the Study Centre, and personalised vocabulary support with the Longman Vocabulary Checker.
Once you have registered and logged on using your unique PIN code, click on a cover on your bookshelf to access your dictionary – a fast and easy way to navigate the best online learner dictionaries.
The new Longman Collocations Dictionary and Thesaurus is now available online, giving you fast and easy access to the complete print dictionary.
A collocation is a combination of words that are often used together. For example when talking about the rain, you talk about heavy rain (= a lot of rain) or light rain (= a few small drops of rain).
The Thesaurus offers real support for students who want to expand their vocabulary and improve their writing. There are thousands of synonyms listed, and the thesaurus boxes explain the difference between terms that have similar meanings so that learners can find the most appropriate words for what they want to say.
Extensive vocabulary means fluency in reading comprehension, which in turn strongly relates to overall academic success.
The Study Centre offers practice to help students expand their vocabulary and use words correctly together.
