As a Spanish teacher, this dictionary is mediocre (but fitting to the price). You aren't going to get much, but for those who want a quick list of words, this is just fine. Most words only give 1 or 2 translations... Ex.) "to move = mudar, mover". No explanation is given as to specific meanings of each, however. (mudar = to move to a new place/house) Another problem is that the dictionary does not indicate whether each noun is masculine or feminine, so this would be a problem for beginning level students since they aren't strong on patterns corresponding to gender.

I started volunteering for an ESL class and found that they were sorely lacking an English/Spanish Dictionary. The classes were predominantly Hispanic. These dictionaries are simple, large print, easy to carry around and cost about the same as rummaging through thrift stores. They were greeted with enthusiasm and the students still use them from their beginners class onto intermediate, to refer to.

I suppose this is one of those instances where you get what you pay for. I started learning Spanish a few months ago, and bought this dictionary when I embarked upon my first full length book in Spanish -- a translation of the first Harry Potter. Being so new to the language, I knew I would encounter the occasional word with which I was unfamiliar and wanted a fast, easy, cheap dictionary I could keep right beside me while I read. I tried using an app on my iPad, but it kept going into sleep mode, so an old-fashioned dictionary seemed like a better option. I thought this would fit the bill, but it does not contain at least 60% of the words I try to look up in it. Remember, it's not a translation of War and Peace I'm trying to read! It never occurred to me that any dictionary, even the cheapest one, would be so inadequate as to be lacking the vocabulary of a book written for 12 year olds.

I purchased this dictionary to assist in my beginners Spanish course and surprisingly many basic words were not included in these pages.
Quite often, words that were included were misleading in explanation as well. Luckily, I have a language translation application on my phone which helped more often than this book ever could.

I found I needed a much more "basic" Spanish/English dictionary for use on my mission trip so did not use this one, but am keeping it for future reference. I probably needed a pocket one, nut did not want super small print. Next time I will find out more specific information of my needs before ordering.

This dictionary is perfect for my needs. I am in Spanish 1 and sometimes all of the words from my textbook are not defined in the textbook itself, so this is a great supplement. It is not a HUGE dictionary but I have not come across a word that I have not been able to find in this dictionary yet. There are two ways to search for words. English to Spanish translations and Spanish to English translations. The dictionary is easy to understand and I think that it will help me throughout my undergraduate studies. I highly recommend this to anyone who is taking a Spanish course or just wants to have a better understanding of the language.
