Content is organized within 12 thematic units, including Everyday Language, People, Housing, Food and Recreation.

Each unit starts with an Intro page (new to this edition) and ends with a story page, with single or double-page sub-topics introducing new words in a realistic visual context and easy-to-learn "chunks."

The target new vocabulary is listed and simple practice activities help students put their new words into practice.

Rich visual contexts recycle words from the unit. This structure is designed to address the needs of multilevel classrooms.

Supporting components include more guidance on this topic as well as assessing needs and lesson planning. (available in English only).

The Picture Dictionary is a great tool in my classroom. For my Adult Language Learners, the Picture Dictionary has helped them to have a clear understanding of words or situations that sometimes is difficult to understand in a regular dictionary. It's colorful and easy to understand The book is bilingual, this fact makes it easy for the second language learners to have an understanding. It is very useful in the classroom. Adult Learners take their book to their own workplaces. Also, I always encourage the adult learners to use The Picture Dictionary at home, to help their children with homework. It is a great tool and a good invesment to have at home. Thanks, Adriana Valladares
