4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book but not comprehensive, 21 May 2010
This review is from: Collins Gem Portuguese Dictionary (Collins Gem) (Paperback)
This dictionary is fantastic as a casual dictionary although it lacks the depth needed to be a real concise definitive guide.

It's fine for everyday use but not if you need real in-depth Portuguese (it's not good enough for my 10 year old to use, when he starts at a Portuguese school in September, for example)

I DO, however, love the "colour" aspect of it. Having the main dictionary words in blue bold type and the definitions in black type definitely makes it easier to read.
I just ordered the new 2010 larger hardback version of this and, despite being shown in the Amazon picture as "in colour", it isn't!
Wish it was..it's easier..but I'm not sure it warrants complaint really.

Oh, the handy letter writing guide in the middle is pretty good too. An English-Portuguese kind of comparison between written letters, greetings, sentence formation etc. Basic but useful
