This article covers theoretical aspects in the development of a bilingualized electronic dictionary (BED), as well as its pedagogical utilization and effectiveness in teaching English for Specific Purposes (ESP) at universities. The aim of the paper is to provide us with information on current skills and habits in complex dictionary use among students of technical sciences. It also investigates implementation of new didactic methods and opportunities that BED design and its application may offer. Since the vocabulary acquisition is essential part of second language learning, teachers should recommend teaching aids that facilitate students' learning. This paper proves that the same is true for dictionary usage as, at least, electronic dictionaries are less time-consuming and user-friendlier than paper-based dictionaries. BED's content can easily be updated which is also of great significance for target students. Some of the results obtained from the emirpical research we carried out are discussed in this article.
