Dictionary Skills Resource Pack

The Oxford Dictionary Skills Resource Pack has been designed to help lecturers show their students how to get the most out of their bilingual dictionaries. It is intended as the basis for a one-hour seminar.

Lecturers will need to download the lecture notes and powerpoint presentation. There is also a handout on grammatical terms used in the dictionary to give to students who may need re-usable refresher material on the basics of grammar.

There are three interactive exercises included in the seminar, and more online below, under the 'Test Yourself' section.
