Write A Letter To Your Friend About How To Use A Dictionary In English

Flat No: 16 C Third floor

Dear Niti,

How are you? We are doing well here. I went to the park yesterday. My grandmother taught me how to use a dictionary. Do you know how to use a dictionary? If not, I will tell you about it in this letter. The first thing you have to do is take the word, for which you have to know the meaning.

The word would appear in the dictionary in alphabetical order. You have to check which letter is the first of the word and turn pages of the dictionary to find where that letter starts. Then check the second letter and turn pages to where you find the second letter after the first letter.

For example, the word “beautiful” comes first before the word “being.” In these words, if the first two letters are the same, then check the third letter. Since “i” comes after “a”, the word “beautiful” comes first. I hope you have learned to use a dictionary.

Bye and take care

Your friend
