A small, low-level monolingual English dictionary for beginners and pre-intermediate learners of English.

Using a learner's dictionary for the first time can be daunting, but the Cambridge Essential English Dictionary makes that first step easier for learners with short definitions that are easy to understand, and lots of example sentences to put the language into context. Mapped to a ground-breaking research programme, English Profile, this brand new edition of the Cambridge Essential English Dictionary now clearly marks essential vocabulary that students need to know at A1-B1 levels and helps students successfully prioritise learning.

Ideal for KET, PET and Starters, Movers and Flyers Tests preparation.
