Bought this after 'out-growing' my little pocket dictionary after GCSEs, to help with my AS french - and it has been incredibly useful. It gives excellent, clear and comprehensive translations, hints on usage, phrases/idioms that are hard to find elsewhere, HUGE section on verbs/grammar and an amazingly useful reference section on everyday french and even examples of letters of applications, CVs, etc,
It comes with a year's subscription of the online version which is handy.
MUST-HAVE for A level students, absolutely brilliant buy!

Over thirty years after receiving Collins' complete and unabridged French dictionary, it was time to give my daughter a hand with her sixth-form French. The 1978 edition had helped me hugely with many a prose and translation exercise, so I had only the briefest flirtation with the Oxford before plumping for the 2010 Collins.
Layout, use of bold font and, of course, colour have moved dictionary accessibility light years ahead. The word/meaning you're looking for seems to jump out at you from the page, compared to the block of text in the dear old 1978 edition.
How comprehensive and user-friendly the 'Language in use' section has become, with nuances explored in detail and vital columns devoted to email and phone text French.
I know you can get a word, definition and even a translation (ha ha)online for free these days, and I use that method myself when the big book's not handy, but I'll always turn to a 'proper' dictionary as the final arbiter (showing my age!). I love books.

An excellent edition - with the most comprehensive coverage, for professionals and translators. The "specialist usage" section in the middle is an added bonus.Recommended.

I first used the Collins Robert Dictionary when I did A level French some *ahem* 22 years ago, it gave me a noticable advantage over fellow students who were using smaller dictionaries. The dictionary gives examples of the word in various contexts enabling a translation that better expresses the 'feel' of the original text. We are now about to move to France and I thought I should get the most recent version. I have not been disappointed. There is a new section on emails and a handy guide to correspondence, both formal and informal.

A brilliant dictionary for the serious French student.

The Collins Robert is the gold standard French dictionary. I t doesn't just translate words, it shows you how to use them in all the popular idioms of both languages. If you're serious about the language you need this great big wonderful book.

Got this for my A level French, and wow - it has everything! Really useful for translating slang/informal language and pretty much essential for more advanced French learners. Not very portable, but then, no giant dictionary is going to be, so it's definitely more of a reference book to be kept at home rather than carried around!

I bought this dictionary to bring my language reference shelf up to date. The very clear Collins typographical design is once more in evidence and use of corpus lexicography makes it very up-to-date. There's not much more to say and it deserves its reputation as the best EN-FR, FR-EN single-volume dictionary from a British publisher.

Naturally professional linguists would tend to use it in conjunction with a French-published equivalent as a check against publisher cultural bias. (As an occasional translator I also use the Larousse single-volume offering.) Using it that way you can't really go wrong.

A top notch very good value dictionary.

I originally had a pocket french dictionary to take me through my GCSEs, however, I was told that I needed to get a thicker and bigger french dictionary to take me through my A-Levels; hence I bought one of amazon. When I recieved my dictionary, I opened it to find that it was in a great condition - it was new, but there were some pages in it, in which were folded and had not been cut correctly to the size of the dictionary itself. I had to cut the excess off because it would have caused problems when I was looking through it. Nevertheless, the dictionary is easy to use with detailed definitions and the words are in blue to stand out so it is easier to find the word you're looking for. I would definitely say it was a good buy, especially for the price I paid.
