How often do you use your dictionary?
I use the dictionary quite a lot. I often look up the dictionary to learn some new vocabulary that I come upon in some readings. It’s really helpful for my study.
Do you like paper dictionary or electronic dictionary?
Well, even my teachers always advocated that we should use the paper dictionary during high school, but now I am still prone to the electronic dictionary when it comes to checking some new words. No doubt, it’s the fastest way of finding the definition that you want.
What kinds of dictionaries have you used before?
I used many dictionaries like English-Chinese, Chinese-English, and sometimes English-English dictionary if necessary. This article is from laokaoya website. I found the most useful one is the English-English version, for example, the LDOCE, which is a very authentic tool for us to check the definitions of the words we don’t know.
How will dictionaries change in the future?
I guess the dictionaries in the future would be totally paperless. People no longer need to take a heavy paperback dictionary to go to school. Maybe we just use a small piece of device, which is probably smaller and thinner than those iPads we use right now. So, it will be definitely portable and much convenient.
