Easiest to use: The clear two-color layout allows maximum ease of access and enables effective communication for educational, business, and traveling purposes.

Consistently updated: The HarperCollins Spanish College Dictionary offers fully updated coverage of both Spanish and English, including business, technological, and cultural terms and extensive coverage of Latin-American usage.

"Spanish in Action" supplement: This offers invaluable advice on how to express yourself in correct and idiomatic Spanish, as well as in-depth coverage of Spanish life and culture.

    An excellent resource for spanish language learners

    I bought this version of the Spanish language dictionary because I already owned the French language equivalent. I love them both. They provide excellent translations from both English-Spanish, and Spanish-English, along with verb tables and common phrases. Though at this size, the dictionary is not easy to travel with, so I would recommend it more for Students than for working Professionals.
