This 'semi-bilingual' dictionary provides more support than a monolingual dictionary with translated headwords, expressions, usage notes and the more difficult parts of examples. It makes the transition from using a bilingual dictionary easier, and helps students realize that not every word in their own language has a direct translation.

If students don't know the word they want in English, they can look up the word in their own language using the Serbian index. The index provides the equivalent word (or words) in English. They then look the word up on the English side of the dictionary, where they will find a translation, a clear explanation of its meaning in English, pronunciation, and examples of how the word is used, The more difficult parts of the examples are also translated. Through using this dictionary, students not only learn the meaning of the word, but also how to use it correctly.

Usage notes in Serbian give extra guidance on grammar and how words work together, and explain the differences between similar or confusing words. They help the students really understand how to use words that are new to them.

Illustrations help your students understand more difficult words. Many illustrations are labelled so they can help expand your students' vocabulary.

Study pages provide useful information for reference, including a Quick Grammar Reference (Kratak pregled gramatike), Expressions using Numbers (Izrazi sa brojevima), Geographical Names (Geografski nazivi) and False Friends (Lažni parovi).

The Oxford English-Serbian Student's Dictionary includes words used in school subjects such as computing, business studies, geography, science, maths, medicine, the arts, agriculture, law, and politics.
