More than simple reference books, the Collins COBUILD dictionaries, created with National Geographic Learning, are pedagogically rich, engaging, full-color language learning tools. While any good learner’s dictionary helps a learner understand the meaning of a word, COBUILD dictionaries do more by showing learners how to use that word correctly and appropriately.

All Collins COBUILD dictionaries are designed to help learners understand and use vocabulary, collocations, phrases, expressions, and patterns effectively and accurately in their daily lives.

Support for these learners includes:

  • Full sentence definitions to show learners how that word is used correctly in context.
  • Supporting example sentences to give more language support to the learner.
  • Vocabulary builders, which show learners how to use high frequency words correctly including Word Webs, Picture Dictionary boxes, Word Partnerships, Thesaurus, Word Worlds, and more.

About the Author

  • Collins

    Through a collaborative initiative, Collins COBUILD and National Geographic Learning are co-publishing a dynamic new line of learners' dictionaries offering unparalleled pedagogy and learners resources. The first Collins COBUILD dictionary was published in 1987, thanks in part to John Sinclair, one of the very first modern corpus linguists who personally oversaw the creation of the Bank of English(TM). Every COBUILD dictionary is based on the Bank of English(TM), a huge electronic database of both written and spoken language, which today contains over 650 million words.
