Hi there folks,

I just found out about a great new “user generated” online urban dictionary this evening and thought I’d share it with you all.

 

 

Slang Dictionary?

Here’s the description that Lifehacker gave it:

Macmillan’s new Open Dictionary allows anyone to suggest definitions for new words, similar to online Urban Dictionary. It differs in the fact that the definitions are carefully screened and handpicked, making it—in theory—more reliable and trustworthy.

I bet we could think of some great lesson ideas to use this with! Well, even if we can’t, Cambridge University Press has a few great ESOL dictionary lesson plans that will help get us started.

Got any great dictionary lesson plans to use with language learners? Be sure to share them in the comments!
