My best friend ^^ Whenever I’m using the com, there will always be one window on firefox with 6-7 tabs just for Naver Dictionary. Both Korean-English and Korean-Korean.
I got quite a shock when I realised that the Korean-English dictionary has undergone a makeover and I’m pleased with the results. Although it will take sometime to get used to it again.
Some of the new features:
English translation in the search box
I like it! Sometimes you just want a quick search and this helps alot.You don’t have to go to the actual page to find out the meaning.
The addition of audio clips for each phrase/sentence is really helpful – to Koreans who are learning English. How I wish they have the Korean version of it 😀 I like how the font of the word and its 한자 is bigger ^^ Sometimes the complicated strokes of the traditional Chinese characters stumped me. I’ll have to zoom in to take a proper look. Now I won’t have to (:
They have a separate category for phrases (속어). Hmm. I’m not so sure if I like it as of now. Some of the examples here overlaps with those in the earlier section.
Go under the cut! ^^
Here, they have full sample sentences that were taken from real sources. I like how they have more examples here compared to the past version.
One thing I’m not so happy with is that everything is so spaced out, I’ll have to keep scrolling up and down!! The screencaps I’ve taken didn’t show everything. And I have to split it into 3 in order to show the different sections. But for the original version, one screencap and I capture everything!
Hmm. I need some time to get used to it. >< I’ve been using the Korean-Korean dictionary more often nowadays. Buts sometimes I get a little lazy 😀 But it’s a good thing though, the examples offered differs sometimes.
