Newly revised and updated, the Spanish-English Bilingual Visual Dictionary is a quick and intuitive way to learn and recall everyday words in Spanish.
The Spanish-English Bilingual Visual Dictionary introduces a range of useful current vocabulary in thematic order, using full-color photographs and artworks to display and label all the elements of everyday life — from the home and office to sport, music, nature, and the countries of the world — with panel features on key nouns, verbs, and useful phrases.
The Spanish-English Bilingual Visual Dictionary features:
- A quick and intuitive way to learn and remember thousands of words.
- A complete range of illustrated objects and scenes from everyday life.
- Fast and effective learning for any situation, from home and office to shopping and dining out.
- Detailed index for instant reference.
- Handy size ideal for travel.
The illustrations in the Spanish-English Bilingual Visual Dictionary provide a quick and intuitive route to learning a language, defining the words visually so it is easier to remember them and creating a colorful and stimulating learning resource for the foreign-language and EFL/ESL student.
I found this book extremely helpful because it is a departure from a traditional French/English dictionary that just lists words in alphabetical order. I have one of those old clunkers at home and it's about 20 pounds and gotten zero use. Because this dictionary groups things together by topic, it is SO much easier to use. If we are talking about sports or going out shopping, I can turn to those pages and I have a list of words I can use to join the discussion. It makes things so much easier when I'm trying to communicate with family.
The pictures are also a great visual aid. I'm a big visual learner so this really helps me understand what I'm learning and saying. My husband's family can also point to pictures and help me use them correctly.
I've seen a couple of drawbacks in other reviews. One of them is the size. I actually prefer the smaller size. It feels a lot more portable that something larger and I don't feel so silly if I need to take it with me if we go out to eat. The other drawback was that there is no pronunciation guide. Unfortunately that part can be frustrating. I got lucky and married a walking/talking pronunciation guide for when I get stuck so this doesn't apply to me.
In any case, I HIGHLY recommend this dictionary. It feels more interactive than the old clunkers and will get far more use.
If you also buy the McGraw Hill bilingual dictionary, which covers things that this doesn't, then you're all set.
