The handy, slim size is easy to fit in a pocket or a purse and does not include any confusing abbreviations or dictionary terminology.
Each dictionary features over 3,000 entries in each direction -- both to and from English -- romanized forms and the authentic script where applicable, a brief guide to pronunciation, general vocabulary appropriate for beginners and intermediates, different senses of the same word clearly distinguished by explanatory glosses, and clear layout and readable type. For most of the languages offered in this series of dictionaries, there is simply no other dictionary available at this basic level.
