Our @MacDictionary channel has outgrown our other channels and we've therefore asked our @MacLearnEnglish and @MacLiveEnglish followers to join @MacDictionary from now on. This means that the Learn and Live channels will be closed down in October 2014.

Why people like Macmillan Dictionary on social media

We are being bombarded by information nowadays […] so, being reminded of some hints, good info to be shared makes it very useful.

Mario João Moraes, Director at Mario Idiomas, Brazil

Because of the 'bite-size' pieces of information.

Anila Scott-Monkhouse, University of Parma, Italy

It works like calendar reminder to learn something new; it reminds me to improve my English day by day.

Elena M. Odessa, Ukraine

Because you can read other opinions.

Stefi, Student in Rome

I discovered Macmillan by chance in 2003 when I bought the CD version for advanced learner's. Since then I always say I LOVE MACMILLAN.

Teacher and Bilingual Secretary

I find your social media content useful because you deal with the confusing skills of the English language.

Anonymous Teacher

It's informative, draws your attention to what's 'the buzz'.


It's faster, more lively.
