App Description

Do you speak Italian and want to learn English? The Dizionario Oxford Study is a best-seller, a reliable bilingual dictionary that is used and trusted by Italian-speaking learners of English to develop their vocabulary and language skills. You can look up a word in either Italian or English to find its translation, hear English words pronounced, and learn how to use them correctly.

The Dizionario Oxford Study is now available as an app with the full A-Z dictionary, real voice (not text to speech) audio, and My View to customize your screen. The app was developed by the same team of editors from Oxford University Press who created the printed dictionary, working together with Paragon Software, a leading software developer for mobile devices.
