The multimedia monolingual English dictionary containing 40,000 references, together with over 30,000 examples based on 250 million words of The Bank of English.
This remarkable CD-ROM provides access to over 50 hours of speech in 283,000 words. You can listen to the selected text, as recorded by native speakers, and everything you hear is displayed on the screen simultaneously.
The dictionary provides direct access to speech data allowing you to record your own voice and play back recordings in real time. You can compare your recording with the original and repeat this as often as you like until your pronunciation is perfect.
You can search for a word directly or you can look the word up using some of its forms (past, present, plural...). You can look up phrases in the same way. You can create your own vocabulary for revision with the help of the RE-WISE method.
