5-0 out of 5 stars A very interesting book
I am a spanish teacher and I strongly recommnend this book for beginners students (K-2nd grade). It is very interesting for the child to see the object in English and then pull the tab and find the word in spanish. The prononunciation guide is very helpful.

3-0 out of 5 stars An introductory book to Spanish.
There are 5 locations (farm, store, park, town, and home) fromwhich 20 words are translated from English to Spanish by the pull of atab. I was disappointed that the basic words like colors or body parts were not chosen as part of the 100 words. On the left side of each page is a full picture of the location; on the right side is the 20 words with a picture of each directly above the written word. The individual pictures do not directly match the same object on the opposite page; often the object is flipped or is seen from a different angle. I did appreciate the back two pages which gave a summary of all the words listed, including the English word, the Spanish word, and the Spanish pronunciation. I also liked the sturdy tabs which seem like they will last a long time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Let's Learn Portuguese Picture Dictionary
I was actually looking for a "story" book that my 3 year old could share with her Portuguese speaking grandfather. The recommended age for this book was 9-12 but I decided to get it anyway. THIS BOOK IS NOW HER FAVORITE BOOK!!! She loves trying to find the items in the big "scenario" picture. She knows the English word so I tell her the Portuguese word and she repeats it while looking for it in the picture. I'm even learning new words!! I'm planning on buying another one for a backup so that she can use it when she starts school!! I'd definitely recommend this book for all ages!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Let's Learn Portuguese Picture Dictionary
I purchased this book, and found it helpful for exactly the purpose I intended: to pick up more vocabulary. It is a good way to associate the words with the items, not having to necessarily use English as a crutch. If you must see the English, it's there, but as a teacher of foreign languages, I find it much better to associate the new word with the item bypassing any translation. If you are new or fairly new to Portuguese, and you want some common words, this is your book. ... Read more

This book is a great way to introduce any child to Espanol. With large pictures of animals, family members, household items, vehicles, shapes, colors, numbers etc. it's easy learning. As an overzealous Tia, I started reading & looking at the pictures with my nephew beginning at a little under a year old. This book has given him a good foundation and is one of his "old" favorites at the age of two. An added bonus is that it's a good refresher for any of us who don't use our spanish every day. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for learning commonly used Spanish words.
I borrowed this book from a Spanish-speaking co-worker and have found that it is a very useful book even though I have been learning Spanish intensively for over three years. The book is very useful for quickly looking up words for a variety of situations. Even after learning the language it is handy to have a picture dictionary available - many of the more complicated picture dictionaries tend to be overwhelming and too detailed. This book will not teach you Spanish grammar and will not teach you how to speak the language but will definitely increase your vocabulary if you have some other resource avilable for learning the grammer. The book is an awkard size and you probably won't find that you carry it around very often.

4-0 out of 5 stars A book full of useful words and pictures for a beginner.
I've just recently dedided to study speaking Spanigh in my home as opposed to a school enviornment. It helps that I have a spanish speaking partner. I have purchased more than quit a few home study books, tapes and Software programs. But have been dissappointed with them. They are all geared towards people who already have a good grasp of the language. This book was a blessing. It is perfect for the True Beginner. If other books leave you thinking, "I'll never learn how to speak Spanish", this book will give you some incentive to continue learning. I have dusted off some of those old spanish books and getting my monies worth by using them. :-) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good...
I thought this Irish Dictionary wasn't bad. As a total beginner in Irish, this has taught me quite a few words. The illustrations are beautifully done, and best of all, each word gives a rough english spelling of its pronunciation, instead of an annoying pronunciation guide at the back you have to keep reffering to (and that often doesn't apply to every single word).

However, I don't think I got enough for [...]. The entries all have large illustartions that take up a large portion of the page, and hence there aren't very many entries. [...].

Also, I thought perhaps it should have been better organized. Maybe they should have put the colors and numbers together in a list in one section of the book, instead of alphabetically in with the other entries. Trying to learn to count to ten is rather tedious when you have to flip through the whole book to find each number.

But for younger children, this is an excellent book, as the illustrations provide a great visual to accompany the entries. The pronunciation guide, as I've mentioned, is a life-saver, as well. So in conclusion, I would recommend this book, if you aren't interested in the layout of the book and the fact that it doesn't have too many entries [....] The only thing I will strongly emphasize here is *only* buy this book *if* you are an *absolute* beginner at the Irish language!!

4-0 out of 5 stars " Nice for kids or adults"
This is a very simple straight forward little dictionary.Onething that is essential is that it has two wonderful pronunciationpages before you begin the dictionary. The pronunciation pages explain how to pronunce vowels, consonants and also explains about broad and slender.

The layout of this dictionary is simple. It is in alphabetical order, and contains pretty simple everyday use words; everything from laughter, to green, to bat. What I really like is that it gives the english word, the irish spelling and the irish pronunciation, as well as a small illustration next to each.

I believe gaelic (irish) would be a very hard language for a child to learn, however this dictionary would be most helpful. I bought it for myself and I'm an adult. I think even though I really don't need pictures, they help by giving your memory a visual as well as an oral memory for association. Kind of like those little quiz cards when you're a kid. ...

Compiled from the author's own drawings and diagrams, each labelled in detail with specific technical terms, the guide follows the basic make-up of a building and its elements, to demonstrate basic technical terms as used in the construction industry.

Roxanna McDonald's book is an essential working tool for students and a useful reference for professionals in the architecture/construction industry, working in the UK and overseas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful, informative and enjoyable
This visual dictionary has more than 1,600 colourful images and its 400 pages are divided into 19 chapters as follows: About the dictionary, How to use this book, People, Appearance, Health, Home, Services, Shopping, Food, Eating out, Study, Work, Transport, Sports, Leisure, Environment, Reference, Index and Acknowledgments.
For each picture you get its meaning in five languages, and for each word you have its definite article showing the gender. Very interesting is the presence of pictures showing actions, so that you get the verbs as well as some useful phrases. At the end of the "Reference" section you have "particles and antonyms" and "useful phrases" - essential phrases, greetings, signs, help, directions, accommodation, eating and drinking. The index is divided into five parts, one for each language, and the names have their gender shown by means of the letters m, n, f .
I particularly enjoy playing with this book by showing a picture and letting my friends guess its meaning in the foreign languages they have studied, and think it's a useful tool for teachers, students or professionals, for the topics are covered in detail. Last but not least, the dictionary is published by DK, i.e. it's a Dorling Kindersley Book, a Penguin Company.

2-0 out of 5 stars not a pedagogical tool
Although, in theory, one might consider books such as this helpful in achieving fluency in five languages simultaneously, this is false. Anyone who speaks more than two languages knows that we store each language in its own special place in our brain, and that location is determined by similarity to other languages also located in our brain. So, when learning Swedish, all of my errors were in German. Never did I mistakenly select a French word while attempting to speak Swedish. Similarly, when learning Italian, never did I reach for a German word by accident. My mistakes were nearly always in Spanish (occasionally in French). The best example of all may be Japanese, for which there was no transfer effect whatsoever. Every mistake I make in Japanese is just bad Japanese, not a word from one of my other languages.

The point is: due to the compartmentalization of languages, this type of book does not facilitate language learning. While I am a big advocate of simultaneous translation, this book, unlike dual language literary texts, offers only individual words, not phrases, for the many colorful entries presented.

I will say that the book is filled with photographs, and this is its true virtue. You may have been wondering how to describe a particular food item in German, Spanish, Italian and French. If so, you may be able to find out the answer to your question here. The sections are thematically arranged, so you can turn quickly to your area of interest, say, auto care, to find out all of the vocabulary that you are looking for. But, of course, a person only needs car part vocabulary when dealing with a broken car, which can happen in only one country at a time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Five Languages at Once
The "5 Language Visual Dictionary" is one of the most unique books I have seen on learning languages. This book introduces the reader to over 6,000 words used in everyday vocabulary. There are 1,600 full-color images.

What is amazing about this book is how many words really do look similar in all the languages. So, if you get a visual picture of the word, you will more than likely be able to recognize it rather easily in all languages.

For example: Internet, l'internet, das Internet, el internet, Internet.

Ok, that was an easy example.

How about: refrigerator, le frigidaire, (der Kuhlschrank), el refrigerado, il frigorifero.

This dictionary is divided thematically. It covers most aspects of the everyday world. The five languages are always presented in the same order.

English
French
German
Spanish
Italian

Nouns are given with their definite articles reflecting the gender (masculine, feminine or neuter) and the verbs are indicated by a (v) after the English words.

Contents: About the Dictionary, How to Use this Book, People, Appearance, Health, Home, Services, Shopping, Food, Eating Out, Study, Work, Transportation, Sports, Leisure and Environment.

You will find a medical diagrams, a family tree, all sorts of clothing examples, information on medical conditions and alternative therapy and rooms in a house (loved the kitchen complete with all the "les ustensiles de cuisine.")

You will also enjoy the workshop, garden, shopping malls, floral arranging, food section (the types of fish and exotic fruits were interesting too), delicatessen, school, work, transportation, sports, orchestra, home entertainment, the Earth, the Animal Kingdom, towns, calendars and continents.

There is also an Index in each language. They went all out on this book!

Ideal for:

Students
Travelers
Business people
Anyone who wants to look through visual pictures of items throughout the world

Children leaning the names of items in the world. You could just show them the pictures and teach them the names in any language.

Fascinating view of our world. A must for all libraries, schools and homes. Definitely a must-have for travelers of all ages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wunderbar!!!!!
This book is amazing. If you have already got passed the basics of German and want to build your vocabulary SIGNIFICANTLY, this book is for you. (You even DON'T need to know a thing about German, it's one of those books that you pick up and start learning immediately.)
What impresses me about this book are two aspects:
*First are how many topics it covers: Everything from
human anatomy to roofing material. From street- cleaning supplies to mathematics. From
hairstyles to botany. From music notation to
aircraft. From.... it just never ends.
*Second is how the book is formatted: when you
open the book you'll see that each section has a
diagram. For example take "recording studio." The
page will have an illustration of a typical
recording studio and have numbers on all of the
different equipment (including the people). Then
next to the picture will be a list of those
corresponding numbers with the German word, then

Book Description

Gives exciting new meaning to the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words

Perfect for children ages four-nine, these references employ stunning illustrations and photographs to bring to life the meanings of hundreds of essential terms. Filled with beautiful two-page spreads, McGraw-Hill's Spanish Picture Dictionary and McGraw-Hill's French Picture Dictionary each pictorially define more than 1,400 objects, people, concepts, and actions common to the everyday world of kids--from town and country, kitchen to classroom.

A great way to introduce Spanish and/or French, the dictionaries feature:

  • Pictorial definitions of more than 1,400 essential words and phrases
  • A blend of illustrations and photographs that will appeal to children of differing sensibilities
  • Engaging scenes and double-page spreads that capture the mind and imagination
