What someone had to say after taking a course based on this book
"In the course 'How to Use a Dictionary', I learned a lot of things like marks and symbols, parts of speech and actually how to use a dictionary, how to find a word fast using the alphabet and the guide words. There is a lot of things that I learned that I can't remember right [now] but I know that I'll remember it later and I won't forget because I know I'll use it later in life. Thanks to World Literacy Crusade now I know a lot of things that I didn't know." M.G.
