Description

Practical English Usage is a world bestseller and a vital reference tool that helps teachers and higher-level learners with common language problems in English.

Practical English Usage provides instant answers to questions about the English language which both native and non-native speakers of English find difficult to explain: When do we use a past tense with a future meaning? When and why do English speakers use 'the'? Do I say 'big', 'large', or 'great'? What exactly is the difference between 'close' and 'shut'? How do I read out an email address?

The Practical English Usage app:
• Deals with spoken and written grammar, vocabulary, spelling, pronunciation, and differences between formal and informal language.
• Contains over 600 indexed entries covering all the important problems for learners of English.
• Offers clear simple explanations with corpus-informed examples.
• Includes notes on background topics such as letters and emails, politeness, standardisation and dialect grammar, the meaning of 'correctness', differences between spoken and written English, and changes in English.
• Covers differences between British and American English.
• Includes audio for the pronunciation discussed in the text.

You can:
• Access entries through the very complete Index, either by scrolling through the list or by keying in the language point you want to look up – e.g. future, conditionals, 'have'.
• Browse through the thematically-organised Contents Overview and the A-Z list of entries.
• Navigate immediately between related entries through the many cross-references.
• Create your own list of favourite entries.
• Go to ‘History’ to view your recent searches.

You can use the Practical English Usage app together with the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary app to look up words. Just tap on a word in Practical English Usage to bring up the dictionary entry.

Better than the book

Pete vegas

The app has the same contents as the book but
better than the book because I can change the
font size. It is much easier to read and search
and carry it around on the IPad and Iphone.

Amazing, but where is the "don't say it!" list?

Oshnaj

Really good.
Easy to use and easy to find whatever you want. Really useful. Much better than having the book.

Where is the "don't say it!" list?

Need to improve!!!

EduLabus

It is obvious that Oxford Practical English Usage is one of the best in the league. The contents are still there. However, there is no way to copy or transfer any part of the book from the app, which I believe is important for referring the book as citations or making handouts for my students... At least, the app should support printing pages...
