Oxford English Dictionary for Schools by Oxford Dictionaries
The Oxford English Dictionary for Schools is easy to use with clear signposting, accessible design, and expertly levelled definitions and examples, making it the perfect language resource for school work and studying at home. It has been updated extensively to include even more KS3 curriculum vocabulary and is ideal for students preparing for GCSEs and other exams. New words and phrases include cloud computing, coronavirus, mental health, podcast, web developer and zero carbon. It is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words written by and for children, which means that the vocabulary is presented in a way that is both accessible and stretching. There are also lots of additional features to support students acquiring a broader vocabulary, such as language panels for project work, related words and antonyms, usage notes for confusable words, and interesting word origins. It also contains real example sentences from the best children's books and teenage fiction, which show students how to use language effectively. There are inspiring examples from authors such as David Almond, Philip Pullman, William Golding, Anthony Horowitz, Beverley Naidoo, and many more from the curriculum reading lists.
