Reviews - What do customers think about Larousse College Dictionary: Spanish-English/English-Spanish (Larousse College Dictionary)?
clear, informative and well worth the price Feb 3, 2008
Larousse offers a strong and affordable bilingual dictionary for persons who are studying Spanish--or even Spanish speakers studying English, for that matter. As dictionaries go, this IS one of the better ones and this edition of Larousse's Spanish-English/English-Spanish 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. I agree with the reviewer who writes that there are multiple translations for words like "loop;" this is the hallmark of a fine dictionary.
The dictionary even includes entries for "foul" language; this also helps the user. The 64 page guide to communication is very nicely done.
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 Spanish or English.
I recommend this dictionary for all students of Spanish or even Spanish 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 product for beginner spanish student Aug 6, 2007
Even though this book says college--it's what's needed even for the beginner. I bought the Larousse student dictionary and hate it because most of the words I needed were not in there. The student dictionary is probably good for someone in 7th or 8th grade.
The College dictionary gives several uses of the word, which is extremely helpful to the beginner. I was able to write excellent papers in spanish early because use of this dictionary helped me to used the proper idiomatic expressions when reviewing the meaning of the words. This dictionary is a must for the serious spanish student.
Great item... shipping problem Feb 6, 2007
I recieved this item with a dent in it and the cover sleeve was torn. I was unhappy with that. As for the dictionary, it has every single word you'll ever want to know in Spanish AND some of the words you don't want to know.
