Longman dictionary of contemporary english. If you can, buy an electronic dictionary. Mine is an oxford electrical dictionary by seiko. It costs $499. It has the britannica encyclopedia, oxford dictionary, oxford thesaurus and many more(has everything necessary for a P1) It also has educational games which is quite fun(no games but edu games)

my school reccommends Longan Active Study Dictionary. It does not have all the words buut rarely the child in primary school would need anythng beyond that. I also have an oxford dictionary on a CD that works pretty well for me. by the way, since when do P1s need a dictionary? don't tell me they tweaked the system already.
