I'm relatively new at teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to Spanish speaking adults. Over the past year I've learned that this book is the first one I reach for when having trouble communicating with my students. Better yet, it is the first book the students reach for when trying to understand or with communicate with me.
This book addresses conversational English giving the student a way to communicate in an English speaking country. The words and pictures are pertinent to everyday living and very descriptive.
I have researched other books, but have not found anything which comes close -- at any price! -- to this picture dictionary.
If you only purchase one book of this type, this is the one to buy. If you are going to buy mulitple books on this subject, this should be the first one!

It's impossible to overstate how useful this book is to students struggling to learn English. Although many entry-level learners have no patience with using a standard bilingual dictionary, they are reluctant to put this book down.
The scenes from daily life (with the possible exception of outer space) are extremely helpful, particularly those dealing with work situations and vehicles.
I have only two criticisms of this book: 1) Adding relevant verbs to the actions in each scene would be very useful (granted, this is asking a lot from a dictionary); 2) Phonetic transcriptions, particularly of the English words, would help enormously in pronunciation.
For someone able to buy only one self-study book, I would say, "This is the one!"

The BEST feature of the New Oxford Picture Dictionary is that the workbook and textbook pages are correlated. It is SO much easier to teach a class of non-English speaking clients and SO much easier for them to experience success. They LOVE the format and the information is pertinent, with necessary language skills taught first. The pictures are EXCELLENT, and the content superb. Because I teach for 8 hours a day before teaching an English as Second Lang. class, I have little time to prepare. This series offers a simple, direct approach that is easy to reference, and easy to work with independently for the novice English speaker. BEST picture dictionary/workbook on the market. Please publish one in Norwegian! I will buy it!!!!!

The book is very helpful in teaching beginning non-English speaking students. The teacher's guide is a useful tool with the Dictionary.
My wife and I are volunteer teachers in a program for Latino workers in the Santa Ynez Valley Calif., We give these books out without charge to the students, can you do any better on the price in quantity? Your response and consideration would be appreciated. Thanks, Robert E. Weiss

If, like me, you came here looking for a child's spanish word book then look no further.
This book is fantastic for adults as it has a lot more detail than other spanish word books.I have a couple of similar books but this one is definitely the best. Each item is clearly numbered and includes both the Spanish/English translation. Great pictures too !
mejor comprar para tu !!!
