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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
