I don´t like to watch women´s soccer because I think that sport is better to men, that sport is hard, heavy, rude; althought women like that sport because They´re happy doing to like it so that is very respectable.

People like the soccer, They get up early when the soccer´s team to play in the city, They go at the stadio, the streets are full with people that to see the play, They like Nacional team o Medellin team, there are a lot security when there is a play between this team because are violent people, They´re angry when any team is losting the play.

I would like to have a conversation with Bill Gates, I think about Hi´s very smart man that has used good the money therefore He has so much wealth in all world, He doesn´t afraid to invest, He´s always Thinking how to has more money, Hés has had success because Hé always studying anythings that can contribute Him. He´s interesting man, I think that I can learn a lot Him.

Hello Muhammad_jamil,

At the British Council we have certain rules about commenting on publications and we cannot recommend any particular books, including dictionaries. I'm sorry not to be able to help you, but the British Council can't be seen to be favouring any particular publisher. My advice to you is to visit the websites of the major ELT publishers - this would include Pearson, OUP, CUP and Macmillan, for example, and see what dictionaries they offer. All modern dictionaries offer electronic and paper versions, so you should be able to try them out online to see which is easiest for you to use.
