Dictionaries

Online dictionaries and translators can be useful when doing certain homework assignments.  You should always look up an individual word and not try to translate an entire sentence at a time.  We will spend time in class discussing appropriate ways to use them.  You are learning a foreign language in a classroom setting.  I want to see what you know, not what the internet knows. :)  Below are two dictionary apps that I recommend for use on your own time.

http://dict.leo.org - LEO is an online dictionary created by the Technical University Munich.  It is an excellent resource for looking up words.  It is also available as a mobile app.

http://dict.cc - dict.cc is an online dictionary and mobile app.  One useful feature is that it is available on your phone offline.
