Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tool I'm an ESL teacher, and my intermediate students are at a point where they want to build their vocabulary for writing and speaking. They've really latched on to the Oxford Thesaurus as a way to do that. While the print is a little small, it's easy to use and offers a wide variety of synonyms and antonyms, luckily, none that are overly antiquated, and an option between NA English and Brit English, which they appreciate. As a teacher, I like that I and they can use it quickly and without wading through obsolete terminology. We also use a Collocations Dictionary, too, as a companion to the thesaurus, but that's another book and another review.
