A new edition of the Concise French Dictionary, specifically designed to meet the needs of advanced learners.
The new Concise French is based on the latest edition of the Collins Robert French Dictionary and has additional features which will help users to speak and write natural, accurate French. With its clear colour presentation, it is the most user-friendly French dictionary available for advanced learners.
The French Concise contains guidance on the pronunciation of words that are likely to cause problems, and warnings against Ã¢Â�Â�faux amisÃ¢Â�Â�, i.e. those words that look familiar, but do not mean what one would expect (e.g. librairie does not mean library). Numerous grammar tips clarify points that students may be uncertain about and which commonly cause problems. It is a very practical book Ã¢Â�Â� ideal for advanced learners at school, college or in the world of business. It contains over 150,000 references, including the latest business and Internet vocabulary.
Information in the new Concise French is presented in an approachable way: complicated terminology is avoided and learners are helped to find what they are looking for as quickly as possible. Important phrases are highlighted so that they will catch the userÃ¢Â�Â�s eye even if they are in a long and complex entry.
Recent innovations in the Collins bilingual range have been included, such as in-depth coverage of entries relating to French life and culture, as well as a revised version of the acclaimed Ã¢Â�Â�Language in UseÃ¢Â�Â� section.
