PyDictionary import issue

I am having issues on Mac OS installing PyDictionary into a Django project. When I pip3 install PyDictionary it says Requirement already satisfied: when I enter the command pip3 freeze it shows me PyDictionary==2.0.1 is already installed.

But it can't find the module for some reason:

from django.shortcuts import render
from PyDictionary import PyDictionary

# Create your views here.
def index(request):
    return render(request, 'index.html')

def word(request):
    search = request.GET.get('search')
    dictionary = PyDictionary()
    meaning = dictionary.meaning(search)
    synonyms = dictionary.synonym(search)
    antonyms = dictionary.antonym(search)
    context = {
        'meaning': meaning,
        'synonyms': synonyms,
        'antonyms': antonyms
    return render(request, 'word.html')

I get the error:

  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.10/lib/python3.10/importlib/", line 126, in import_module
    return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 1050, in _gcd_import

    from . import views
  File "/Users/natelampros/PycharmProjects/english_dictionary/englishdictionary/dictionary/", line 2, in <module>
    from PyDictionary import PyDictionary
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyDictionary'

I've looked and can not find out why it can't find the module. I've tried installing PyDictionary on vs code and in terminal and it says it's installed every time.
