Default Re: Electronic Dictionaries in ESL/EFL Learning

Electronic dictionaries... Have you used one? When I was tutoring Japanese students in Canada, I could always tell when they used the dictionaries to do any writing. The translations they give are VERY formal and usually archaic. For intermediate students, their best choice is a good English dictionary in simple form, or asking their tutor/teacher for a definition. Much more accurate!!
