Bilingual Dictionary Buster: How to Use Bilingual Dictionaries by Children is an excellent guide for teachers whose elementary and secondary English learning students may use bilingual dictionaries for taking standardized tests. Of course, they would be most useful if students are taught how to use them. Research supports the hypothesis that training in dictionary use leads to more frequent and effective use. The use of bilingual dictionaries can support reading comprehension and improve performance on writing tasks, which are often scored based on vocabulary usage. This curriculum will address how to use bilingual dictionaries as part of a program for acquisition of L2 vocabulary.
