I regularly use MacmillanDictionary.com in class as my favourite online dictionary and thesaurus. … Give it a try, I think you will find that this is a great site for helping English language students develop their personal lexis and pronunciation skills.

I LOVE Macmillan Dictionary … An excellent feature in the MD is the close link with the Thesaurus, ideal for dedicated tertiary students wishing to expand their vocabulary systematically. … Conclusion: The Macmillan Dictionary is my new #1 amongst the monolingual online dictionaries.
review on JochenEnglish, Germany
Thank you so much for this site! … MED is very clever, thought-out and detailed. It is the most useful site I've ever found to help in learning English.
I love the Macmillan Dictionary because it always solves any type of doubt I may have, and I always find in it the right description for my translations; it has saved my life several times! It's awesome, marvelous, wonderful, great, etc.
