Oxford Fajar English Dictionaries

In our previous post on When to Use a Monolingual or Bilingual Dictionary, we explored the differences between a monolingual and bilingual dictionary and when a student should use either one of them. We also talked about age appropriate dictionaries for students in our first post on What Dictionary To Buy For My Child?

In this post, we will zoom in on monolingual English Dictionaries by Oxford Fajar Malaysia. As we mentioned in our earlier post, it is important to get an age appropriate dictionary because the dictionary is specifically written with an understanding of where students are in their development, and entries in the dictionary include the kind of language they will understand and can relate to.
