5.0 out of 5 stars Great size dictionary for school bag 11 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Would recommend buying this as it's perfect for kids school bags. It measures approx 6"x4" and is just under 1.5" thick, so is not too heavy and probably easier to use than the very small ones you get. It has French - English ,English - French and also has verb tables .

5.0 out of 5 stars good for school 8 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my daughter who is in Year 7. It is easy to use, clear, a nice size and I would think will be comprehensive enough to last her for at least the next 2 or 3 years, perhaps longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and concise 21 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good package for a small schoolbag dictionary. It's larger than the pocket versions, but smaller than a paperback novel. It is excellent for what it is.

It was my daughter's first choice for school (starting GCSE) as she wanted something compact with comprehensive verb tables (she tells me they can take a dictionary into the exam). It looks well set out and is very clear.

Obviously you don't get extensive descriptions of usage in a dictionary this size. As a former language student myself, I would encourage the habit of checking in a larger dictionary for contextual meanings as simple translations can be so far off the mark. This also exposes you to a lot of real-world turns of phrase. I happen to have my old full size Collins-Robert for this.

Nor do you get a grammar. I think for GCSE you can pretty much follow whatever text book is being used, but by A-level you'll be creating more varied written language and you'd want something with the basics set-out whether that's a separate reference or a larger bookshelf dictionary and grammar combined.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't find anything! 2 Mar 2014
By Sue
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this. Took it to France twice, but it is bulky and I just find it so difficult to find words that I shan't be using it again.

My daughter loves learning french at school.

She wanted a dictionary of her own rather than use the school ones.
