To call it a dictionary is a misnomer. It doesn't cover much of the Russian nomenclature. It is rather a bilingual illustrated textbook for beginners in Russian. It is a pity that there is no "Dictionnaire visuel", bilingual or multilingual, for Russian. (There is an excellent one for French-English-German-Spanish-Italian, published by Québec-Amérique, in Montreal, Canada.)

Oxford English/Russian Picture Dictionary May 17 2013
By EverybodyLovesRaymond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Oxford English/Russian Picture Dictionary is superb at teaching extensive everyday vocabulary in a colorful and engaging format. Please note, however, that this book is geared toward Russians learning English. There are no accent marks on the Russian words because it is assumed that the reader is Russian, and therefore already knows how to pronounce everything in that language. We use a Russian dictionary (http://www.amazon.com/English-Russian-Russian-English-Dictionary-Kenneth-Katzner/dp/0471017078) to find the accents, which actually helps to reinforce learning. If you don't mind the extra work that this entails, you will love this book.

Everyday Life Nov. 19 2012
By Glenn Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is useful for everyday language. It is an excellent tool for word association and vocabulary building.

The only criticism is the lack of accent marks for the Russian words. This is important enough to keep it from 5 stars. For a student to use this to learn Russian with a reasonable accent is problematic.

The strong point is the word/picture association by themes.

I recommend this book for teachers and students.

Great Business Model Nov. 7 2012
By Jonathan Mahoney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's a great business model since they use the exact same pictures for every language and just translate the word list into different languages for their different books. The issue is that the Russian translations are that good. There are blatant mistakes, as has been mentioned in previous reviews, but there are also many very uncommon Russian words, or awkward translations into Russian. I'm sure a native Russian could work around that in most cases, but I would never recommend this book to an English speaker learning Russian.

The book is very nicely published. Beautiful full-color pictures and loads of words.

Wide array of scenarios March 4 2008
By F. S. Mohd. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are 168 pages of different scenarios pictured. Each item in the picture is tagged with a number. The numbers are listed on the bottom of the page with the English and Russian spelling. So, it helps if you already understand how to read Cyrillic letters.

The only thing I'm not 100% sure about is the Geography listing on page 124 has an incorrect Russian Translation for South America. They listed it as Þæíàÿ Àôðèêà - South Africa. So I don't know if there are any other small mistakes like this since I haven't gone through the whole thing yet.

Other than that, this is a good choice.

great for learning English Sept. 7 2008
By Christiane N. Hulet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm an ESL teacher, and I've had two Russian-speaking students request this book. It's well laid out, and the illustrations are clear and colorful. I don't read Cyrillic, but the other reviewer mentioned a mis-translation; hopefully such errors are few. The book is very well made. In some cases, I felt that the English words were more European than American, but still understandable. Overall, a great tool for learning tons of English words on your own.
