Reviews - What do customers think about Diccionario Practico del Estudiante/ Student Dictionary?
An exceptional dictionary at an excellent price... Jul 30, 2007
I am a teacher of foreign languages and a firm believer in migrating students to mono-lingual dictionaries in the target language as early as possible. This dictionary does a remarkable job of covering a vast array of Spanish in an attractive format.
It is blessed by the Real Academia Espanol, and my experience with it confirms that it meets the high expectations of its pedigree. In addition to providing a respectable variety and depth of definitions, including regional words like "checar", it provides numerous pages of Spanish grammar and fully conjugated Spanish verbs. I am currently using it to decipher some of the less common words in the Spanish version of Harry Potter, and have yet to stump it.
The book is of a manageable (though not pocket) size to fit in a duffel bag or backpack and yet the fonts are large enough to be easily readable. The use of blue keywords in contrast with the black definitions adds to both the ease of using this book and its general aesthetic appeal.
I enthusiastically recommend this book as a first dictionary in Spanish. I suspect it will serve even most college students of Spanish well. I plan on buying a class set for my room.
For those that outgrow this book, I can heartily recommend its larger cousin: Diccionario Esencial De La Lengua Espanola
