Now in an attractive and easy-to-use two-color format, this new edition of the Oxford German Mini Dictionary offers up-to-date coverage of all the essential day-to-day vocabulary with over 40,000 words and phrases, and 60,000 translations.
The latest words in each language have been added, reflecting all aspects of life today-boy band, google, identity theft, speed dating. New cultural notes give the essential background to life in the German-speaking world. Other key features include warning symbols to identify slang and informal language, and special help with finding the correct translation of frequently used words, which are difficult to translate, because they appear in so many different contexts-words like can, do, have, and be. A new menu-reader section has been added so you know exactly what you're getting to eat, and the acclaimed phrasefinder gives you super fast access to all the words and expressions you need for everyday situations-shopping, traveling, asking for directions, or finding a place to stay. Finally, the conversion charts for distance, weights and measures, and clothing and shoe sizes make traveling abroad easier than ever before.
All of these features are packed into a pocket-sized, durable format, and, with a brand-new text design and layout, this dictionary is more accessible and easy to use than ever before. Ideal for general users, business people, holiday makers, and travelers, the Oxford German Mini Dictionary is your perfect mini-guide to German language and culture.
