This dictionary is one of the best bilingual dictionaries I have ever had. There isn't a lack of up-to-date words and the layout itself of the dictionary is very easy on the eyes. The size of the dictionary is very convenient and it can be stored very easily in a schoolbag for example. But the best thing about this dictionary is that it has a grammar section in the back consisting of about 150 pages. In this grammar section many things are explained such as verb conjugations, all essential things. There is also a section dedicated to irregular verbs and in this section each verb is listed and then its auxiliary verb, past participle, present participle and imperative form(s) are shown. Also with each verb there is a table and this verb is conjugated in 6 different tenses, being; Present, Future, Imperfect, Conditional, Past Historic and the Present Subjunctive and the verb is conjugated in all forms (I, You (formal and informal) He/She/It, We and They) which is a very useful Overall I'm very impressed with this product

My daughter wanted this, having looked at a whole range of dictionaries as she begins her GCSE French studies after studying the language gently for a few years. This looks to be the best of its kind for her purposes at her level: reasonably comprehensive without being so detailed as to put younger teenagers off. She makes good use of it.

I find this dictionary to be very useful mainly because of the fact that it has a grammar section to it aswell as the normal french to english dictionary. It's a reasonably good size as well making it clear to see the particular word you want to find, and it has a whole index in the beginning to guide you through the symbols that you will come across!

I bought this thinking, as is common for every other language dictionary I have bought that it would do English to French and French to English. However it didn't do French to English, so I had to buy a separate French dictionary as well. This was disappointing.

You want to learn French? I am dyslexic and learning French has been a challenge! Here is how I did it but there are many ways to skin a cat, even a french one. First get a dictionary--Collins is excellent. Next buy the Michel Thomas tapes. They are fantastic and he will teach you especially the french verbs and tenses--a bugbear for most. You need a grammar book and I found the Collins Easy Learning French Grammar very good, especially the demonstration verbs at the back. Next you will need help with the pronunciation which is usually the major problem for adult learners. Do you know about nasal vowels and semi-vowels. NO--well get a little book by Christoher Kandris on "How to speak french practically perfectly'. It is very helpful and if you spend a day or two learning the phonetics it will transform your french. The only problem is the author is American and his 'english examples' need to be translated sometimes from American english into English english! Next read some french books. Do not start with Voltaire--read the "Le Petit Nicholas' series by Sempe and Goscinny. Beautifully written, so amusing and heartwarming. One of the 2 authors wrote the Asterix stories.
Finally when you think you know it all, buy 'Correct your French Blunders' by Veronique Mazet. This is a fantastic book containing all you really need to know and it contains information that I have not found in any other book. There are some quirky things about usage (at least for the English!) and her chapters on 'Words, Constructions and prepositions" are truly invaluable and I would buy the book just for these chapters. Bonne Chance! Collins French Dictionary and GrammarChris Adams

I bought this because my old dictionary, although it is smaller than my hand and very handy, is old and most of the words that I need to know are not in there, and I am doing A level.
This dictionary has had almost every word I have been looking for, and is very useful. For the price I bought it for (£6.99) it is really good. Although most people would think it is expensive, the rrp for this is actually £14.99, so its a bargain. :)

I thoroughly recommend this dictionary for anyone learning or trying to improve his/her French. It has all the vocabulary you need for a decent level of French (say up to GCSE) though you would need a Robert French-to-French for more advanced work such as the names of obscure plants. It has English-to-French and French-to-English (with examples) but any teacher will warn against looking up a French word from the English and using it without being sure that it fits the context. Key words such as "si" and "vouloir" are picked out and examples given of their various uses e.g. "si" being an emphatic form of "yes" in answer to a negative statement. Uses of language like "verlan" (backslang) are explained and verbs are given with the prepositions which commonly follow them. The grammar section, on blue pages at the back, is excellent and, again, has all you would need for GCSE. Grammar rules are set out on the left hand page with examples of each on the right and there is a complete set of conjugations of all verbs including the less used literary forms. There is a short section on knotty points: when to use "pouvoir" or "savoir" etc. It is also strongly constructed which may seem a minor point but I have had other dictionaries which have fallen to bits whilst this is still firm and strong.
