If I could buy it once again I would choose hardcover edition, this cover is too weak in my opinion. My fault.

Shame on you, LDOCE developers! Included software is awful - even as simple things as scrolling and copying text in a normal way seem to be too difficult for your app. Is it really so hard to make simple, fast application which encourages to explore a content of one of the best English-English dictionaries ever? Fortunately, this sort of application EXISTS, but is created not by YOU, but by an outsider, an average user of your soft. And it's free. I recommend to look up the phrase: "LDOCE5 Viewer" in google.

This is really good. Before you buy it, you can have a guided tour and see if it fits your needs. To me, it's more than good, it is really something I am looking for over several years. The DVD-Rom needs not to be in the PC once it's installed.

I am a english language advanced learner and I really fancy this dictionary. I have been using it everyday since I bought it. The software interface is quite good. The pronunciation is either in English or American. There is a lot of example phrases pronounced. You can pop up the dictionary and highlight a word in a text, it will automatically search the word in the dictionary and pronunce it. The definitions are clear enough so I don't need to use a translation anymore.Well done.

This is a useful dictionary in paper form, but the DVD provides a wealth of additional information which is what makes this such an excellent resource. When looking up a word, there is audio pronunciation of both English and American accents, and opportunities to find alternative words, including some games. It is really helpful for anyone learning English a a second language, and I would recommend it strongly.

I had the previous version of this dictionary and I was in love with dictionary application on my PC. Then I bought a MAC and the software was running very sluggish on MAC. This updated version runs super smooth on a MAC and believe me this is the best English to English dictionary ever! :)

There's nothing that can be compared to this dictionary that boosted my English skills as it did. There have not been many fancy words that I would have not been able to translate with Longman's dictionary. The most frequently used book by me.
