5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book for Arabic Vocabulary Learning 31 Oct 2009
I own pretty much all of the arabic learning books(at intermediate level) you can find online, and for vocabulary learning I use this one which surpasses all. It is very dense, contains a lot of categories, each with detailed vocabulary and with beautiful illustrations. If you already know how to read some arabic and want to improve your arabic vocabulary significantly or use the resource as a reference dictionary it is a must have.
I dont usually write reviews but find this book so useful and valuable I just gotta recommend it. I have the oxford arabic picture dictionary as well and like it a lot but this one is even more detailed.

Thoroughly recommended, especially at the price.

I have used the French and Italian versions of this dictionary for some years and this Arabic version is at least as useful for students and teachers who are learning Arabic in an Anglophone environment. I have always been very impressed by the organization of items within the vocabulary groups: the dictionary can be used in particular situations to buy or discuss things, many of which can be found on facing pages of the book.

But this dictionary is perhaps even more useful for teachers who can arrange lessons around particular topics and know that students can locate relevant items far more quickly and accurately than with a 'conventional' dictionary.

Of course most items illustrated are of those found predominantly in the 'West', so some items specific to Arabic culture are omitted, (for example Arabic breads or cakes). But, providing the purchaser bears this in mind, they will find this book invaluable. This reviewer, however, does not know Arabic sufficiently well to give an opinion one way or the other of the accuracy of the translations of unusual words. What he can say is that he has not found any glaring errors.

The printed characters are quite small, but they are very clearly printed: much superior to most other pocket-size dictionaries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost everything you need 12 Feb 2011
Almost love this book. My second language is Arabic so it was perfect for me. Excellent quality. Excellent info. Huge range of topics. Only shocker: discusses numbers and their pronunciation...but not in their arabic written form...found it VERY weird since the whole book was English and Arabic text, but when it came to the numbers, they were only written in English. Odd.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 5 Feb 2011
By DonnaB
fantastic and very in depth working words, great for those tricky nouns especially in business or medical situations.

Only bad point is the size of the print, as the book is handbag size, the actual text is tiny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 20 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great little book, ideal for the traveller/tourist who wants a little more than the BBC English/Arabic mini-book. Found it helpful to stick page tabs on separate sections for easy of reference.

Our Egyptian friends think this book is great, so we always take an extra copy or two on our frequent trips to Egypt. Probably the cheapest exercise in international relations ever.Arabic-English Visual Bilingual Dictionary (DK Bilingual Dictionaries)

2.0 out of 5 stars Dictionary 22 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh dear! The print is so small that I have to use a magnifyer as well as my reading glasses! A great pity as it is a brilliant dictionary with beautiful illustrations and covers everything. I would gladly have paid more for it in a larger sized copy. Not a dictionary one could use instantly in a necessary situation.Both my Arabic tutors shared my opinion and expressed same to their students; neither wore glasses, as I do.
