CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Each Oxford Beginner's Bilingual Dictionary is designed to offer English
speaking adult learners a comprehensive, straightforward introduction to
foreign languages, covering all the vocabulary needed for the first years of
study, along with notes on grammar and usage and guidance on the culture where
the language is spoken.
These easy-to-use references break from standard dictionary design. Clear
entries with examples showing how the language works in context make it quick
and simple to find the translation you're looking for, and the bold, color
layout makes the dictionary easy to navigate, allowing you to get to grips with
the language fast. All main translations are preceded by an equals sign so that
they are instantly identifiable, and all parts of the entry are spelled out in
full, avoiding confusing jargon and abbreviations. Grammar and usage notes
throughout the text warn of possible translation pitfalls, and thousands of
example phrases show how the language is used in real life.
At the center of each dictionary is a section devoted to useful information
on the country, countries, or regions where the language is spoken. This
includes background on lifestyles and culture, tips on etiquette and
interaction, and a phrasefinder that provides handy phrases for use when
traveling abroad. The dictionary also includes a section on core
vocabulary--all the words you absolutely must know at a beginner's level,
whether you are a student, traveler, or business person.
The Oxford Beginner's Bilingual Dictionary is the perfect tool for adult
language learners who need basic vocabulary at their fingertips fast.
