If you want to learn English, you can get a learner's dictionary, which is a special kind of dictionary where definitions and explanations are in simple English, the most common collocations and patterns are highlighted, and there are a lot of example sentences to illustrate how each word is used.
Here's an example for those who don't know this kind of dictionary -- entry: suggest: http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/suggest

My question: are there dictionary of that kind to help learn other major languages too? Spanish, German, Arabic, Russian, Chinese... ? I am afraid not, and that would be such a pity.
