Useful for convenience, but limited

As a beginner in Portuguese, if I can spot errors and get frustrated at some everyday words not being in... hence three stars - perhaps a bit picky as I have relied upon the dictionary a lot to check pronunciation and it has 95%+ of the vocab that I am currently learning. Falls a bit short at explaining everyday phrases, e.g. when a single word literally translated renders a different meaning when used in a particular phrase. Others on my course have plumped for Collins, and they have been studying for longer. Read into that what you will.
