Larousse Portuguese English concise dictionary Aug 22, 2008
This dictionary is very useful. As indicated in other reviews the binding is less than great. The strong point of this dictionary is that it includes many phrases related to the word that you are looking up.
THE BES DICTIONARY Jun 22, 2008
WHEN PONE IS LEARNING OTHER LANGUAGES, LAROUSSE CANNOT BE BEAT. THEIR DEFINITIONS ARE CONCISE.
Great resource Mar 15, 2008
This dictionary provides an unlimited supply of words and is simple to use. I have used other dictionaries but this one provides more information and is a great source.
Very useful Nov 18, 2007
I have been using this dictionary and the Harper Collins Portuguese Concise Dictionary in translation work over the last six months or so. Together, they are quite serviceable. Harper Collins is definitely easier to read, as it is printed on white paper, as opposed to the newsprint Larousse uses. Larousse, however, includes verb tables, while Harper Collins has no such amenity. Larousse also has a section in the middle with cultural and communication information. In my experience with many languages, including Portuguese, no one dictionary has proven perfectly satisfactory for all purposes, so I recommend getting both Larousse and Harper Collins, and for easier reference to the vast array of sometimes quirky verb forms, add 501 Portuguese Verbs.
Really Good Reference May 27, 2007
I used this dictionary for my beginning Portuguese class, and was very happy with it. More often than not,I was able to find words in this dictionary that my classmates could not find in theirs. It's a little bulky, and probably not good for traveling (too big to put in a regular sized purse), but when I travel to Brazil in a few weeks I will use this dictionary for my classes, and then buy the pocket size for when I am out on the street.
