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).

I teach English to international students who have very low skills in English. Vocabulary is a basic building block of language learning, and students need more vocab to understand, to write, and to have conversations. I added the OPD to my required texts because it comes in various language translations (a HUGE plus), and it is colorful, fun (non-intimidating, and easy to understand. It has definitely been a useful & helpful resource for my students and I.

We have been using this picture dictionary in our "Talk Time" sessions where immigrants and refugees are practicing their English. It has been an important tool for stimulating conversation and explaining words. This book has been extremely helpful in the planning of our topic subject for each week. We also use this picture dictionary in our ESOL classes. Since it is so thorough we can always find pages that can assist us in whatever subject we choose as a topic of conversation for our "Talk Time" session. I know it is highly appreciated by our international students as some have chosen to have copies for themselves in their homes. For anyone involved in this type of outreach to our new immigrants and refugees I would highly recommend using this picture dictionary.

This book was recommended to me by a non-native speaker of English. I purchased it (along with the Oxford Picture Dictionary: Low Beginning Workbook) as a gifts for a friend and her English has improved drastically. A must for those that don't have access to an English as Second Language class or supplement to those that do.

This is the best dictionary for learners of English as a second language and other adult learners. I have used this in my classroom for almost 2 years and the students are impressed with the vocabulary and the use of verbs. Not only is there a comprehensive use of many nouns in familiar pictures, but the action of verbs are also shown in picture form. Adult learners appreciate the level of the pictures, but the book is also valuable for young students who are learning to read and/or spell. I highly recommend this book for its usefulness in the educational system as well as home schooling.
