This is a handy little dictionary, which unlike a lot of compact works of this nature still retains a print size that is easy enough to read for most, including older students.

A pleasant bonus is that it also has some useful illustrations in the main text as well as a nicely-done pictorial section in colour between the two sections, along with some Czech grammar, which English speakers will find handy. In addition, it is robustly bound and printed on decent quality paper.

My only criticisms would be that it does not provide noun genders (it is really designed for Czechs after all) and the vocabulary covered is somewhat limited; a slight increase in size - say to match Berlitz's superb "Concise" format - would bring about a disproportionate increase in usefulness, with only a small gain in bulk.

But these are not fatal flaws. In a field that is not exactly crowded, this is a useful dictionary for students and the keener traveller alike.

I bought this to replace the abysmal Michaela Burilkovova pocket dictionary

What a pleasant surprise. Very wide ranging and accurate content with illustrations to demonstrate technical terms and specialist vocabulary e.g body parts and engineering.

Very well written and will fit into a fat pocket.

Follow the advice of the reviewer who convinced me: "Yes, buy this one"

Perfect for my Czcech Daughter -in-law as she studies English in the United Kingdom. She has found it extremely useful

My Czech language learners in the ESOL class tell me that this is a useful dictionary that contains most of the words they have needed.

I bought this dictionary after reading a positive review on Amazon. I am delighted by the purchase. The type script is excellent and is very easy on the eye. The content is extensive and variations in meaning are covered. There is a basic grammar in both languages and an illustrated section covering topics such as animals, meals, clothing, fungi etc. etc. It is actually a pleasure to browse through. On the slightly negative side, it is a little too bulky for any but the most generous pocket, but wouldn't take up too much room in a briefcase, notebook bag or back pack.
I think you would be unlikely to need another dictionary

I like this dictionary. It is infinitely better than Trnka's in content (many more words) and layout. Get this one - it is really good. Although it is a Czech publisher (there is a pronunciatin guide for English but not Czech, though the latter is a phonetic language), there is a Czech grammar section for English purchasers too.
