How I Use It

This app is useful for students who need to look up unfamiliar words on the go even when they don't have an internet connection.

It supports the advanced learner who may be curious about new vocabulary as well as those with lower levels of literacy who may want to look up a word they can't spell.

A good, basic dictionary.

My Take

The Merriam Dictionary app is a handy, on the go word reference that helps students expand their vocabulary by allowing them to look up words any time, any place.

In fact, the dictionary can be used offline so you don't even necessarily need an internet connection to use it.

But the best feature is the audio feature, which allows students to look up a word by speaking it.

This is a great tool for helping students who don't necessarily know how to spell a word look it up and learn!
