4.0 out of 5 stars Bought for school, 16 Sep 2012

This review is from: Oxford Learner's German Dictionary 2012 (Paperback)
We were advised by the school to buy this version for my son's GCSE German course.

The first part of the book is German to English, followed by English to German. Sandwiched in between as a section of 15 useful topics - such as writing a letter, food and eating, travel and transport etc.

We already had the Collins Easy Learning German Dictionary - and at first glance these are pretty similar and you could easily get away with the Collins one if you already have it. However, on comparing the two side by side the Oxford version does slightly have the edge - particularly in the German to English section - the layout and handy hints are a lot clearer and easier to follow, so from a visual perspective, I would definitely recommend this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4stars because it doesn't show the correct method for separable verbs, 22 Mar 2014

This review is from: Oxford Learner's German Dictionary 2012 (Paperback)
Good dictionary, really helpful and insightful. 4 Stars only because when learning the correct method of separable verbs, this book doesn't show them. Eg. Aufstehen is what you want to look for but this book split the word up - 'Auf' and then 'Stehen'. My tutor said this isn't the best way of learning German verbs. I'm new to this method, but thought it best to highlight this to new buyers. I have since bought the Oxford Duden DIctionary from Amazon. It is the top rated for German dictionaries. Otherwise, this book is very good, very useful and was delivered fast and well packaged.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly ok - but, 25 Jan 2014
This review is from: Oxford Learner's German Dictionary 2012 (Paperback)
The main thing wrong with this dictionary is the lack of pronunciation guides.

They assume you have enough German that you can pronounce it correctly by looking at how it is spelled. That usually works if you have taken a year of German.

But while German is mostly phonetic, there are words which don't follow the rules, especially imports from French and English. The pronunciation of these words is not indicated, so you would have to check them in some other dictionary.

Other than that, it is pretty good.
