A perfect dictionary to travel with Feb 19, 2008
This book, coupled with the 575 Italian Verbs book, made it possible for me to survive in Italy for four months with little problems. Loved this book, very easy to read, very user friendly. Highly recommend this to any traveler or serious student of Italian.
Comprehensive, compact, easy to use Italian-English dictionary Sep 5, 2007
This dictionary is perhaps not quite small enough to fit in your pocket on a trip to Italy, but it's not huge and could certainly find some day-pack space. More importantly, for anyone learning the language, it has comprehensive and clear coverage of any word you might come across in everyday use, including an excellent section on congugation of verbs, both regular and irregular. My only criticism is that I found that usually I wanted to look up a congugation from the English (ie, how do I say "he goes?") but the verbs were indexed from the Italian. So I'd have to look up "to go," and then go to the Italian side to look up "andare" to find where to find the complete conjugation.
The differences between American and everyone else's English is clearly differentiated. For those of us who already speak English of one variety or another, that probably isn't such a big deal but I should imagine that this would be a real bonus for an Italian speaker who needed to know the difference between "going to the bathroom" in the US and in Australia!!!
good basic dictionary Apr 5, 2007
Great value. A really good basic dictionary. As others have said, it's a bit big to really be called pocket sized - but the type is legible.
italian phrase book Jan 9, 2007
This book is very basic...but, extremely practical. The phrases that are translated are quite necessary to travel through Italy.
