Good size dictionary, cannot fit in your pocket but bring much more vocabulary than those little ones. I recommend to all my students learning Portuguese. It has a section in the middle with sample of letters which are very helpful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Handy But More Grammar Needed 8 Oct 2012
By TREX - Published on Amazon.com
Got this lately to help me with learning the language.
I've already used the French and Spanish versions of this Collins Pocket series so I had no problem shelling out the cost of this one.
First, this book applies a Brazilian pronunciation to the Portuguese words - a happy fact for me personally. But it also provides a guide on the spelling differences for pre-2009 European and Brazilian Portuguese, as well as the 2009 'universal standard' adoptions.
How I wish this book had a some verb conjugations in the back section like the equivalent Collins Pocket French and Spanish dictionaries.
This omission - and the infuriating absence of a Portuguese equivalent to the Collins Gem grammar booklets - is enough for me to dock it two stars.
