I'm Korean and here is Korea. I bought this dictionary last year. Thesedays I'm learning English myself very hard!
The good things of this dictionary are very simple, kind and clear.(not too many grammer codes and labels, definitions easy to understand and easy to see editing--> I feel so fresh this editing, my eyes are not tired..!)
Especially the best thing that I think is the USAGE NOTE! For example , "USAGE NOTE- desire, want, and wish- Use WANT to talk about things you would like to do or have....-Use DESIRE and WISH only in very formal writing or in literature:......(X) DON'T SAY-desire to do someting(X)"
Nobody who was my English teachers told me that things.. (of course I respect my English teachers...:) I think this dictionary is best one for foreigner who learns English as a second language like me. If you buy this one, you will NOT regret your choice... Good luck to your English learning.. from KOREA

For learners of American English, the Longman dictionary is the hands-down best choice, particularly at the Intermediate Level. Informative and up-to-date, the Longman provides clear easy-to-understand example sentences plus invaluable usage notes - the distinction between machine, tool, and gadget, for example. The dictionary is not too heavy for students to carry to and from class; the CD-ROM provides pronunciation of all headwords. Our ESOL students refer to the Longman as 'Super Dictionary.' The Cambridge CoBuild is more British, more comprehensive (and heavier); the American Heritage version for ESOL students is, in my opinion, a disappointing version of the 3rd Edition Am. Heritage. For a super dictionary, try the Longman.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. Marren VINE VOICE on May 31, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a great English-English dictionary for intermediate to advanced students. The definitions are clear and easy to understand and are often offered by way of example--e.g., bereaved--if someone is bereaved, someone he or she loves has died. The illustrations are really nice, the layout clear. I strongly advise my students to use this as soon they can handle it--at higher levels I tell them they must break themselves of the habit of translating. I'm also a big fan of the Collins Co-build, which is more complete, but it's hard to get in the U.S., and the alternate British/American definitions could be confusing to all but the most advanced students. This is a winner. Given the bad reviews of the CD I haven't tried it yet, but this book stands on its own just fine.

Format: Paperback
I think this dictionary is superb because generally there are no derivatives in the definitions of the words looked up. Most dictionaries are like this: FOXY -- someone or something that has the characteristics of a FOX. If someone is trying to discover the definition of the word "foxy," then most likely the person is not going to understand the word "fox," so what good is the dictionary's definition to that person? Longman's Dictionary might have something like this: FOX -- someone or something who or that is SLY. I have tutored/taught English at a college for nearly thirty years, and although we recommend Longman's Dictionary mostly for ESL students, I also recommend it for native speakers of the English language for the reason stated above.
