Reviews - What do customers think about Larousse Mini Dictionary German English English German (Larousse Mini Dictionary)?
Good for reading, not speaking Oct 15, 2007
I bought this product for a business trip to Germany. I had never even been to Europe before, and I thought that having a dictionary would be a good idea. While this product is excellent for helping read menus and signs, it lacks when it comes to pronouncing the words. For example, I looked up the word "check" so that I could ask for my bill in a restaurant. Using my dictionary, I found that the word is "rechnung". Having never had a German lesson, I had no idea how to say this word. So I looked it up on the German side to see how to pronounce, however the pronounciation uses German symbols which I don't understand. When the waitress came, I butchered the word terribly and she helped me with the correct pronounciation. Luckily I stayed at a hotel with a very nice and helpful wait staff!
Overall, I'd say that this dictionary is helpful for looking up words here and there. The dictionary contained almost every word I tried to look up. However, it is not a substitute for having a little bit of German language training.
