About Macmillan Dictionaries
The number of people learning English around the world today is vast, and Macmillan is very much in tune with the broad range of levels, ages, cultural backgrounds and motivation that these learners encompass. With this in mind, Macmillan has created a series of dictionaries which respond to the differing needs of learners worldwide.
What all Macmillan dictionaries have in common is a clarity of presentation and an ease of use as well as, perhaps more importantly, the reassurance that they give users a true reflection of English as it is used today: detailed analysis of large corpora, using highly advanced software, enable the dictionary writers to identify how English is used by native speakers and by learners around the world. At every stage of the writing process, teachers, coursebook writers and language students contribute information about what learners really need to know. This rigorous approach to dictionary writing has won us a number of very prestigious awards, as well as the thumbs-up from millions of students and teachers over the years.
