PhrasalverbsdictionarySome people still root for dictionaries and some people wanna see them gone in the age of cellphones and apps. I used to be one of the students who carry a dictionary everywhere and make a good use of it , Times has changed and I see  some online tools and apps that are taking their places.

These are my top free online dictionaries
