Collins continue to build on the strength of their phrase books by improving and updating their highly successful Phrase book and Dictionary series. This new edition will contain a photo-key section illustrating signs and other practical and useful information. Previously 'three books in one', the new series will contain 'four books in one' -- a phrase book, a food guide (with menu reader), a dictionary, and now a photo-key guide showing signs and practical, useful, visual information. The phrases are short and easy to use. The language reflects everyday speech -- there are no lengthy sentences to struggle and sweat over. The phrases have a simple guide to help with pronunciation. There are also practical tips. The clear 4-colour layout allows easy access to key information. Collins Phrase Books aren't just for emergencies. They are designed to allow you to get the most out of your visit abroad; from sampling the food to getting the best deals on public transport.

Amazon review for the previous edition: A surprising amount of information in a handy sized book This is a lovely, handy little phrase book, ideal for taking on holiday. It fits into a pocket or handbag, and is reasonably robust. It's quick and easy to use, with clearly labelled chapters on all of the important issues that arise during a foreign trip, including hotels, travel, business, helath problems, emergencies, and shopping, along with general vocab such as numbers, greetings, asking directions, telling the time and so on. Besides that, there's a massive section on food including information about local specialities, and a menu translator. The second half of the book is an english-spanish, and spanish-english dictionary, and even a brief guide to grammar. Everything has an easy to understand pronunciation beneath it, which is really useful. There are even sections sports and nightlife, for disabled travels, and specifically for exchnge visitors to Spain, or those hosting a Spanish student. Another useful extra feature is the information at the top of each page, such as opening times, speed limits, the voltage used by electrical appliances, and many other handy bits of advice which you don't know you need till you get there! On the whole, a good buy.
