This section is highly illustrated with line drawings. 2) Language for Communication: 48 sections comprising a unique collection of everyday conversational phrases for different situations (e.g. Expressing Surprise, Telephoning), and their nearest equivalents in the learners' own language. 3) An alphabetical index of all English headwords (including IPA pronunciations) and an alphabetical index of all translations. Word Routes gives clear and detailed information on grammar and collocation, and has thousands of example sentences, as well as extensive coverage of idioms. The learner's own language is used in all explanations, and the needs of Italian-speaking learners are specifically covered. American English is included.
