Product Description

From the Publisher

Acclaimed for its comprehensive vocabulary coverage, Collins' top-of-the-range French dictionary is the most authoritative and reliable French dictionary on the market. Drawing on the vast resources of Collins' multi-million-word language databanks, it provides the user with an incomparably accurate, up-to-date picture of how real French is used today.

While the specialised nature of some of the entries ensures that it will be the dictionary of choice for academics, university and higher level students, and language professionals, there is much which any language learner will find accessible. The clear typography and uncluttered layout, for example, and the highlighted keyword features, provide the most user-friendly aid to translation possible. There is also help available for typical translation problems and detailed information about France and the French-speaking world in the form of extended cultural entries.

Complex entries amd common lexical structures have been given in-depth treatment with special layouts, and pronunciation is clearly shown for both languages.

The Language In Use section shows hundreds of contemporary examples of how everyday French is used. It includes guidance on essay-writing and correspondence, and gives help in expressing yourself in a wide variety of situations, with categories such as "Likes, Dislikes and Preferences", "Comparisons" and "Obligation".

The combination of the French dictionary and the Language In Use supplement provides such a complete tool for language learning that satisfaction is guaranteed!

From the Back Cover

This edition of the market leader draws once again on Collins’ and Le Robert’s unique multi-million word databases of contemporary English and French to ensure the user has the most complete and accurate picture of real language available today.

New to this edition are boxes to help with the most typical translation problems. In addition, drawing on the success of the previous edition, many of the most common lexical structures in both languages have been clearly highlighted making this the most user-friendly dictionary in its class for speed and ease of consultation. Coupled with this is a revision of many of the most difficult entries in both French and English.

All the proven Collins features are retained – complete reliability, guide to language in use, user-friendly cultural and language boxes, the most up-to-date coverage and the most easy-to-use layout for even the most complex of entries, reaffirming this as the world’s best French/English dictionary.

This Dictionary is extremely useful, especially to AS and A level Students. It has both french to english and english to French sections, even with finger holes at the egdes of the pages to speed up looking up words.
In the centre of the dictionary there is a language in use section, giving advice on how to write letters, invitations, and apply for jobs.
Overall, a very useful dictionary to have!
