Oxford Picture Dictionary – Book Review

Oxford Picture Dictionary
by Jayme Adelson-Goldstein and Norma Saphiro

Oxford Picture Dictionary is a great means of enriching your English vocabulary. With a wide range of topics, from everyday language to transportation to recreation, it certainly will make you a more knowledgeable user of the English language. The pictures are clearly presented, making it easy for the readers to identify what they refer to. You might expect that this pictionary includes only nouns, but no! It also comprises verbs as well as grammar points, which would be perfect companions to the nouns, and provides the readers with additional, helpful expressions that they can use in certain contexts. What about pronunciation? Don't worry as there's a guide along with the pronunciations of all the words featured in this book. Note that the kind of English used in this book is American English, so it might not be really suitable for those who want to enlarge their British English vocabulary. For your information, Oxford Picture Dictionary is also available in bilingual editions.
