SpanishDict is hands-down one of the best free resources available online for Spanish. It covers pretty much everything a beginner learner needs, has a featured-rich dictionary with audio and video, and lots of free vocab and grammar lessons.
For seasoned Spanish learners, SpanishDict requires no introduction.
It’s a gigantic treasure trove of Spanish content, that includes a feature-rich dictionary, grammar and vocabulary lessons, conjugation tables and more.
What makes the SpanishDict dictionary so useful and unique is that it not only includes standard text-based definitions, but also audio recordings and video of a native speaker pronouncing the word.
When you search for a word in the dictionary, you can add that word to your own list for later memorization (somewhat similar to Memrise or Anki).
There are also tabs on each dictionary entry where you can view/listen to the pronunciation, see conjugations, examples of usage in real Spanish sentences, or find synonyms in their thesaurus.
It’s a seriously featured-rich dictionary.
The site also functions as a free linear course with loads of grammar and vocabulary lessons you can freely navigate (with or without an account), as well as quizzes to test your knowledge.
The advantage of having an account is saving your progress and, if you choose to upgrade to a premium subscription, removing annoying ads (one of the only complaints I have about the site as a free user).
Overall, SpanishDict is an excellent resource and as far as I’m aware, there is no dictionary resource online quite like it.
