This teaching resource is available on the website of one of the most well-known and outstanding universities of Hungarian higher education (Eötvös Loránd University of Arts and Sciences, Faculty of Liberal Arts ) and suits the needs of intermediate and upper-intermediate students who study in Teacher Education. They need to develop their listening, speaking, reading, writing and critical thinking skills and at the same time they need to expand technical related vocabulary. This resource assists both the lecturer, who can use this online pedagogical dictionary with students in the classroom, and students who, rather autonomously, can also explore and reflect on their pedagogical and intercultural knowledge which they showed and developed during the project.
