Using a Dictionary Effectively!

The debate over whether online dictionaries or traditional print dictionaries are more useful seems to be a thing of the past for most people. Of course, there is no obstacle in front of those who prefer the book to the internet, and those who are accustomed to learning by touching the book, to apply to traditional dictionaries. However, we can say that many students now prefer online dictionaries due to their ease of use, audio pronunciation and variety of sample sentences.
