An English android dictionaries app helps you keep thousands of words in your pocket rather than carrying a huge paper dictionary. Unlike a paper dictionary that you have to maintain, you don’t need to maintain an android dictionary. Moreover, you can understand any word at any time of the day and you understand it at any place you are at!
We all know that a dictionary helps you in understanding certain words and figure out their meaning. Dictionaries are available in multiple languages and consist of thousands of words. It does not just tell you the meaning of certain words but it also tells you that in which category does that word belongs, whether it is a verb, a noun, etc.
There are a few dictionaries that even give you a sample sentence containing the word you are looking for, so that you completely understand the meaning of the word and how it can be used and in what sentence it can be used.
First, when you come across a word that is unfamiliar to you, try guessing its meaning by figuring it out through the sentence. Even when you are unable to understand its meaning, then go look into your android dictionary. Try reading every definition of that word and understand which meaning fits correctly in the sentence you are reading. If you are still unable to understand dits meaning, check out the examples of the sentence.
One way through which you can find the right definition is by looking at its part of speech. Once you know the meaning and definition of the word and you know where and how it can be used, start practicing whenever you can. Try making sentences of your own and check if they are right or not.
