If your first language is not English, you may use a dictionary in any examination at INTO and UEA unless it is expressly forbidden – for example, during an English language test.
It must be a translation dictionary (e.g. Chinese-English) from one of these series:
- Berlitz Compact
- Berlitz Pocket
- Collins Gem
- Collins Pocket (no longer being published)
- Langenscheidt Universal
- Oxford Pocket/Mini/Compact
It may be a good idea to buy one of these dictionaries, as you can use it throughout your time at both INTO and UEA. Prices range from about £4 to £14.
