FREELANG - Free Language Resources

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Bernd Schroeder (Faculty), Jan 28, 2002
Comment: I have used these on-line dictionaries extensively on an as-needed basis for
German and French. It is very easy to obtain a translation for a given word from
the dictionary, though generally only one translation without further
description is given. This makes it a good tool for someone with experience in
the language who has forgotten or needs a specific piece of vocabulary. Ideal
for on-line tasks, since the lookup is quick and one does not need to leave the
task to look for a book.

Technical Remarks:

The dictionaries are self-installing executables. After installation one simply
clicks on "search" to look up words. Switching between english-foreign and
foreign-english is done by clicking on the flags on the home screen. There is an
"add" feature as well as a "Practice" feature for drill.
