Overview

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. Story pages include pre-reading questions to build previewing and predicting skills and post-reading questions and role-play activities to support critical thinking and to encourage students to use the new language they have learned. 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).

    Oxford Picture Dictionary, 2nd Edition English/Other language (Russian)

    Oxford Picture Dictionary is a very good word picture dictionary which I use for ESL/ EFL tutoring. In a few weeks of use, I've found little or no errors.(English/Russian version)

    The artwork is skillful, clear, and non-distracting for word learning and for keeping the student's attention focused on the words.

    Word by word is a comparable picture dictionary. Actually, either one is useful. I prefer the Oxford for its artistic and layout clarity.

    great for travel

    This book is great for someone who is studying Russian or traveling to Russia or similar countries speaking the same language. It covers different subject and scenarios that shows you pictures and the word in English and in Russian. You can carry it with you and if you are stuck you can show the picture to someone who can help you get or find what you need. I use this with the Rosetta Stone program and it has been very helpful for me. One suggestion is to copy some of the most important pages and carry them with you instead of the entire book.
