Inside Monolingual Dictionaries (2)
Single user interactive CD-ROM, with hundreds of hours of four-skills vocabulary practice.
Jayme Adelson-Goldstein, Norma Shapiro, Jenni Currie Santamaria, and Jane Spigarelli
Beginner to Intermediate
This interactive CD-ROM is part of the sophisticated OPD program, delivering practice of the units' contents through a variety of activities. Content of the Dictionary is organized within 12 thematic units, from Everyday Language, to People, to Housing, to Food, to Recreation. Each unit starts with an 'Intro' page (new to this edition) and ends with a story page, with single or double-page sub-topics introducing new words in a realistic visual context and easy-to-learn 'chunks'. The target new vocabulary is listed, and simple practice activities help students to put their new words into practice. Story pages include pre-reading questions to build previewing and predicting skills, and post-reading questions and role-play activities to support critical thinking and to encourage students to use the new language they have learned. Rich visual contexts recycle words from the unit.
