4.0 out of 5 stars Travel Czech March 6, 2006
This book includes a Czech-English and English-Czech dictionary, as well as a basic grammar section and even a short history of the Czech Republic. After looking at several Czech dictionaries, this is the one that I've found to be easiest to use and is best suited for a tourist or casual student of the language.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not possible to use as a primary dictionary September 24, 2010

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was always impressed by the build-in dictionaries in Kindle. The function works wonderfully with English-French or English-German dictionaries. Unfortunately, this Czech dictionary is completely useless. I am disapointed that Amazon does not specify which dictionary works as a build-in one and which not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good guide for a traveller January 8, 2009
If you make a trip to the Czech republic and want to understand a few words, while you are in the airport, restaurant, city centre etc. then this book is appropriate for you. It provides a brief list with the most common words you will need, when staying in Czech republic for a few days. But remember! Only the most common. If you need something more detailed, you have to look for an appropriate dictionaty.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for helping to learn along with a program August 12, 2008
By Michael
This is a great way to learn how things are spelled and translating from english to czech. It also helps a little with pronunciation. However, it is best when used with a language program. Such as Pimsleur or any other program that helps you learn how to speak the language.

This is not so bad for a book, but it is aweful for a reference, because index does not work.
