Hi,

I am currently sourcing around for a good english dictionary for my primary school son.

Any recommendations?

Well, my children are using the Collins Cobuilds English Language Dictionary which actually belongs to me.

"Longman titles' are usually good buys. A thesaurus is extremely helpful too.

Or simply, go online (with parental permission) - speedy and efficient way of searching for meanings

Try these 2 websites ;
http://dictionary.reference.com/
http://www.merriam-webster.com/
