Introduction

We are delighted you have decided to buy the Collins French Dictionary and hope you will enjoy and benefit from using it at school, at home, on holiday or at work.

This introduction gives you a few tips on how to get the most out of your dictionary—not simply from its comprehensive wordlist but also from the information provided in each entry. This will help you to read and understand modem French, as well as communicate and express yourself in the language.

The Collins French Dictionary begins by listing the abbreviations used in the text and illustrating the sounds shown by the phonetic symbols. You will find French verb tables and English irregular verbs at the back.
