Using a dictionary-is it mandatory?
Hi. I'm a teacher in Isreal.
i wanted to discuss the question of usin a dictionary in the classroom
Sinca my student are with special needs (emotional problems) I help them traslate word and don't always insist on looking them up in the dictionary.
I know it's important to practice this skill , on the one hand, but on the other, they won't use is when they'll shop abroad ( they'll probable ask someone's help).
what all of you' enslish teachers say or do about it?
waiting for your opinions and advices.

I am moving your post to Teaching English, where you may get more response.
