In the course of time advances in science and technology drive the progress of languages. We use dictionaries to learn new words, to look up their meanings and to learn their correct writing and pronunciation in our own language and any foreign language learning. A dictionary is an essential part of a foreign language learning journey and there are different types of dictionaries.
As you know, by the development of technology dictionaries have gone beyond a book form and turned into a tool that everyone can easily access by a phone or a computer. Almost all dictionaries considered the most useful are now available online. For this reason, the websites of dictionaries will be listed below.
In monolingual dictionaries the meanings of words are explained with the definitions in that language. Not only learners, but also native speakers can use this kind of dictionaries.
New language learners mostly prefer such kind of dictionaries. A bilingual dictionary is a dictionary that words are translated into another language.

The dictionaries which we mentioned before were dictionaries that reflected common words. But there are some dictionaries that reflect terms, etymological origins of words and synonyms of words. This kind of dictionaries are usually used for more professional purposes.
