Reviews - What do customers think about Larousse College Dictionary: French-English/English-French (Larousse College Dictionary)?
Merci beaucoup !!! May 29, 2008
Larousse offers a strong and affordable bilingual dictionary for persons who are studying French--or even French speakers studying English, for that matter. As dictionaries go, this IS one of the better hardcover dictionaries; and this edition of Larousse's French-English/English-French dictionary is bound to be a big help to many students.
People have noted that when Larousse updates their dictionaries they do more than window dressing--and they are right. You get great entries that reflect the changing times: the definitions of "software," "hostile takeover" and "baby sitter" are all included in this latest edition of the dictionary. Moreover, you DO get words that reflect the different nuances of a word whenever necessary. This is the hallmark of a fine dictionary.
The dictionary even includes entries for "foul" language; this just might help you! There are even French verb conjugations; and that's superlative for a dictionary in this price range. There's even a 64 page guide to communication that is very impressive.
The pages are made of paper that is slightly thinner than I would like but it's more than sufficient for the student. This is a minor point, naturally. The typeface is easy to read and I like how you can use this dictionary to translate back and forth by looking up entries in either French or English.
I recommend this dictionary for all students of French or even French speaking persons studying English. Not only will this satisfy students at the elementary level; it will also be most beneficial for students at the intermediate and advanced levels of study.
Excellent Dictionary Jan 4, 2007
Clear font and very practical examples with lots of phrasal expressions. Excellent dictionary with reference verb tables. Appendix is helpful for American French learners. Highly recommended.
