If you're studying for GCSE or Standard Grade, or starting a language at an Adult Learning centre, the Easy Learning range offers exactly what you need.
The wordlist has been carefully selected to cover the essential vocabulary required in GCSE and Standard Grade exams and to ensure that you are provided with all the words you'll need as you begin to get to grips with the language.
We've taken the advice of teachers on content, design and layout to ensure that these dictionaries meet the needs of students. There are numerous innovations which will help you navigate the dictionary with ease and give you helpful tips on usage, translation, expression and culture.
Easy Learning dictionaries take a clean approach: each new translation is underlined and appears on a new line, so that you don't have to trawl through continuous text to find the definition you're looking for. It's easier to find the word you're looking for thanks to 2-colour text (headwords in blue, text in black). Grammatical information, such as gender, case and part of speech is also clearly indicated.
In the middle of the dictionary, there's a Language in Action section which offers helpful advice on the essentials: correspondence, telephone, numbers, date, time and verb tables. There's also a new feature on False Friends, so you can be sure you won't tell your friend Juan that you're embarazada (pregnant) when all you wanted to express was embarrassment! Nor will you offer your friend Saskia Gift (poison) when you wanted to give her a present.
Collins Easy Learning Dictionaries are designed to help you on the road to language proficiency, helping you find exactly what you need right from day one.From the Back Cover:
