The use of pictures is proven to aid understanding and the retention of information. Working on this principle, these highly-illustrated bilingual dictionaries present a large range of useful vocabulary. Each dictionary is divided thematically and covers most aspects of the everyday world in detail; the key themes include home, work, shopping, services, transportation, food, and health. The target vocabulary and accompanying pictures for each dictionary are identical. Dictionaries also include words and phrases for conventional use and for extending vocabulary. The compact dictionaries have a trim size of 5.5” by 7.5”. The index is bilingual.
