I noticed my students struggled to use online dictionaries and were defaulting to google translate. I created this document and activity to help students improve their use of the website www.wordreference.com.
This activity is a useful handout that breaks down the most important abbreviations used. It uses a few screenshots to illustrate the importance of using an online dictionary instead of a translator. There is information regarding the forum discussions, compound forms and looking up verbs.
There is a practice exercise from English to Spanish and another practicing translating Spanish idioms using the wordreference site.
An answer key is included.
This is a great tool to use with your students or to leave for a sub.
