TitleThe use of dictionaries as a pedagogical ressource [[sic]] in the foreign language classroom
AbstractTeachers of English as a Foreign Language are often unfamiliar with the resources offered by dictionaries, and unaware of the support these reference books provide for the development of non-native speakers' communicative competence. Thus, these teachers fail to refer their students to these books in search of the information they need in order to decode and encode the target language. The autonomy gained through the efficient use ofdictionaries prepares learners to deal with the language beuond the classroom context. This study examines the number and variety of opportunities for dictionary practice offered by course books, which might motivate lexicographers to play a more active role in the design ofcourse books.
