Go to there dictionary links on the side. Choose the one that says Your Dictionary - My favourite. This is the dictionary that has wonderful example sentences in which you can see how specific words are used and what other words they are used with. 

Below you will see that I am asking a few questions with your new vocabulary. See, if you can answer them in writing in the comment box.
