Collins Cobuild Primary Learner’s Dictionary
This dictionary has been specially created for primary school students whose first language is not English, but who attend English-language schools. Accessible and easy-to-use, it is the perfect tool to help children improve their language skills and build vocabulary. It covers all the essential words, phrases, and idioms that students need to learn, and is ideal for children who speak a language other than English at home. The definitions are written using simple language, which enables the child to discover for themselves what words mean, both in the classroom and at home. The dictionary also contains example sentences of real English, which show the child how English is really used in everyday life. The dictionary includes a wide range of cross-curricular vocabulary items, which will help students studying in English to build their academic vocabulary, as well as gain confidence in writing and speaking English inside and outside the classroom. Key curriculum terms and important everyday vocabulary items are illustrated throughout the dictionary to support the child's understanding of key concepts and to encourage exploration of the language. The brightly colored supplement illustrates a range of academic and general topics, making the dictionary invaluable to a child who is not only learning English, but also studying through the medium of English.
