- How to Use a Dictionary
This is great link on how to use a dictionary, the twins have just discovered the dictionary so this will help me to teach them how to use it effectively, I can also attempt to devise some focused English lessons from this. I will attempt to get the twins attention with this but I think it won't take long for them to glaze over whilst watching, so this is more of a good guide for me.
