Reviews - What do customers think about Larousse Concise Dictionary: French-English/English-French (Larousse Concise Dictionary)?

good dictionary for French Learner  May 23, 2008
I like using the dictionary because it's completed by words classifications and pronunciations. Also it provides conjugations which are very important in learning French. It also gives information about measurement that is used in economics and maths. So, if you are new learner of French, I suggest to use this dictionary.
You can't beat LAROUSSE  Mar 24, 2008
Now I have papa bear, momma bear, and baby bear. The three sizes of Larousse dictionaries. They are all superb. You can't lug the large Larousse around with you everywhere and the baby larousse won't cut it at times on a difficult translation. So, this is right in the middle of that range. There aren't many times when this won't cut it. Recommended.
Larousse Dictionary   Feb 8, 2008
The product is great! It was shipped pretty much brand-new and nothing wrong with it. For a French-speaker, it was really important that it be in quality condition and it was. Thanks!
Forget the Pocket Version; buy this one  Oct 20, 2007
I have been intensely studying French for almost 3 years now, including about 16 weeks in a language school in France plus hundreds of hours practicing with young French people in my home town. I own quite a number of the Larousse dictionaries in their various sizes.

Even for travel, I find the pocket dictionary to be extremely frustrating, bordering on useless. It has a very small number of words in it, and with the words it covers, there is typically only one sense or explanation given, whereas many French words have many meanings. More often than not, I would waste time with the pocket dictionary and ultimately give up, having learned little or nothing about what I was seeking.

The Concise dictionary, on the other hand, is more similar to the much larger hardback Larousse dictionaries than it is to the pocket. I can find most everything I seek in it, and the various senses of words are generally well explained.

Granted, this dictionary is too large to fit in your pocket and probably too large to fit in a purse, however it will easily fit in a backpack or in a carryon or suitcase or rental car. I use it constantly.

Even though a dictionary is small enough to fit in your pocket, if it won't help you to learn the language than it is useless. That is my opinion of the pocket version; easy to carry but of very limited utility.

If you really want to learn French and if you go to French speaking places for that reason, forget about the pocket version and bring this one, which is a good compromise between something you can easily carry and something that you will actually find useful.
Big as a Brick  Aug 15, 2007
I brought both this dictionary and the "pocket" dictionary to bring on a trip to Paris. Well, this version is enormous - I won't even bring it. And the "pocket" dictionary by the same publisher wouldn't fit into any pockets of mine. It's the size I would leave on my desk to study with - not for trips.
