    I prefer the Longman Dictionary. This is what I usually recommend to students. My second recommendation is the Cambridge Dictionary. I think the clarity of the definitions, the examples, and the print are more important than how many words there are. That's why I recommend the Longman Dictionary.

    There are online versions of both of these dictionaries. The one for Longman is The Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, though I usually recommend the Longman Dictionary of American English.

    I would go to both the Longman and Cambridge sites to see what they have.

    There is a Cambridge Dictionary of American English as well.

    Here are the links:
