Pictures speak louder than words

Pictures speak louder than words

The Spanish-English Picture Dictionary (published by b small publishing) is great for new learners, introducing more than 350 words.

What is it?

Designed for young beginners, the book does not require dictionary skills. Vocabulary is divided by topic rather than alphabetically (although a standard word dictionary is included at the back). Each page covers one topic and includes nine images alongside the English words, the Spanish translation and a pronunciation guide.

What else?

If you have access to iPads you can download the picture dictionary apps (available in Spanish, German and French), which let pupils test vocabulary and pronunciation through interactive challenges. Find out more at bit.lyvMgGSm.
