HASH(0xaa8c0ad4) out of 5 stars Oxford Picture Dictionary Aug. 2 2010
By Gemlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very pleased with our purchase of this product. I originally purchased both the new and the old, thinking I might use the older one. After comparing, however, I felt they had made sufficient improvements to warrant purchasing the newer edition for the needs of our program. Many items of technology were included and the illustrations are wonderful. This book is well organized to quickly find items even if you don't speak English. Great for young people and adults. I did note that male/female body parts were not illustrated or listed. This would not be a resource for one trying to communicate using these terms to a doctor or school official even. This seemed somewhat puritan... but perhaps this was deemed necessary in order that it span age groups... which this definitely does.

HASH(0xb70add5c) out of 5 stars Amazing book! July 24 2013
By F. Samb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just purchased the Oxford Picture Dictionary, second edition, and it is the most amazing picture book I have ever seen! I am in awe by how well-researched and thorough it is. I mean the authors literally thought of everything!

I am very articulate in English, but since it is my third language, there are sometimes random words like a c-clamp or a grasshopper or loafers that I just don't know. It surprises people because my English is so good and they don't hear the trace of an accent and I can write amazing philosophical essays. So there was just this inconsistency between my knowing what a term like "wreak havoc" means and my not knowing what a "grasshopper" is. Weird.

I couldn't find an appropriate book to fill in some of the gaps I have in my vocabulary. The ones I found were either too easy or too abstract. This one is concrete and complete. I probably know about 75% of the words in it, but that 25% I'm going to learn with this, that random 25% that gives me a headache sometimes when I'm trying to describe stuffs, will make me feel like a native speaker. This book is just too perfect.

I'll recommend it to everyone I know.

HASH(0xaa8c145c) out of 5 stars Picture dictionary for adults and kids to learn English May 2 2008
By Joanna Maddock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was meant for Koreans learning English but the Korean words are under the English words so you can use it both ways. You might think a picture dictionary is for kids but this one is for grown-ups and is VERY well laid out by category. There are quite a lot of words illustrated including verbs, prepositions and nouns as well as adjectives.

HASH(0xaa139744) out of 5 stars Most helpful and NOT a kiddie book April 22 2014
By clonsheefior - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most helpful--and not for kids as some mistakenly believe. Many topics are quite sophisticated. It's a way to learn vocabulary directly, not translated through the student's native language.

I am a German living in the US. I like to have the every-day situations described in the book, like going to the hairdresser, different shops and so on. With the pictures it makes it even much easier to learn and remember the words. It is a nice help, especially when you have just settled in.
