This dictionary is really compact so it fits easily into you pocket or satchel. It is convenient for taking with you whenever you will be in the company of German speakers. The plastic cover will resist rain and moisture and is easy to wipe clean. The text entries are easy to read (with glasses if you normally wear them) even though they have to be in small print for this compact publication. Headwords and main associated words are printed boldly in blue - this definitely helps your searches.

At the front of the book there are 6 pages giving guidance on German pronunciation. However, within the body of the book there is no pronunciation guidance given in either the German or English section [hence 4 stars and not 5]. While never denying that German pronunciation is usually regular, this still feels like an omission. When you are studying on a language course, this would not be the best book to keep by your side for that reason. The absence of distributed pronunciation guidance probably means the book is less bulky, mind; that is a virtue in itself.

So, take this dictionary with you at all times when you are out and about but find a different one to support thorough studies.

This is an excellent dictionary and is truly 'pocket sized' and has a soft plastic cover. I have been learning German for several years and would never go to a German speaking country without it. This is a travel essential.

So useful that when we left our German friends at Stuttgart airport they asked to keep it. This is my second purchase of this item to replace the one I left in Germany.
