Excellent pour les gens de langue espagnole. On devrait publier une version inverse pour les anglophones qui veulent apprendre l'espagnol. They should publish a version for English speaking people who wish to learn Spanish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Primarily meant for those learning English Aug. 1 2008
By Everyday Joe - Published on Amazon.com
This well-structured and nicely illustrated English/Spanish dictionary is a good resource which could easily have been made excellent. Where it comes up short is the lack of bilingual coverage for many entries.

Though the product description does flag the fact that the dictionary's purpose is to "meet the needs of today's English language learners," the layout of the dictionary gives the impression that it is for English speakers learning Spanish as the initial entries are given in English. However, many examples -- most notably the practice exercises -- are given in English only. This could prove frustrating for those wanting learn or expand their Spanish with it or vice versa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish learners still enjoy most of book's value May 18 2009
By T. Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am learning Spanish. I had read that this book was primarily intended for Spanish speakers learning English, but I didn't understand what that really meant. I had taken a quick look at a classmate's copy of the book and it seemed great to me, so I bought one too.

The heart of this book is a set of vocabulary in both English and Spanish on each page, illustrated by pictures. This feature is equally useful for people learning Spanish or English.

Then at the bottom or side of each page there are points for further practice, questions for discussion, and the like. There are also occasional stories followed by questions on comprehension. These are all in English, and are really useful only for Spanish speakers learning English.

I'm a lot more interested in the vocabulary than the exercises anyway. The exercises may be useful in a classroom setting, and I'm sure they do add some value for English learners. But my personal finger-in-the-wind estimate is that I can still enjoy about 75-80% of the functionality of the book.

I'm sure this book will help me learn a ton of new Spanish vocabulary in a relatively easy and painless way. I'd say I'm going to get more than my 15 dollars' worth out of this book.

The OPD is an excellent resource for English Language Learners. I've used it for years with much success in my adult classes. The second edition is updated well with contemporary pictures and words. My students rely on it as they learn vocabulary and conversation style.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent teaching or self-learning tool Nov. 24 2010
By Anna P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had the English-only version of this book, but when I realized how useful it was for my English adult class I ordered the English/Spanish for me to relearn Spanish. Also all of my students are Spanish speakers, so instead of making copies in English only, I started making them in the E/S version. It saved me the effort of trying to translate. Besides all that I love the thematic approach of the book. The possibilities of working on each of its pages are unlimited for classroom activities. It is really a classroom life-saver if the teacher is creative and knows how to plan activities around each page. For example I used 2 verb pages for practicing pres. continuous, then pr. simple, and other verb tenses, making questions etc. I used the same copies for practicing what students do in the course of a day, and much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Feb. 23 2013
By jean stohlman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used several versions of the Oxford picture dictionaries over the years with kids, and I have a more exhaustive version that I have used for myself for years navigating between two languages. I use this particular one with my adult ESOL classes--it's current, gives useful vocabulary and information, and they can put it into practice right away. At this point, I find it not just helpful, but essential, as a tool for English Learners. I'd recommend it to anyone learning English.
