Get today’s terms in a dictionary that will last a lifetime! This up-to-date dictionary is the ultimate pictorial reference for vocabulary learning. The over 3,700 words take students from everyday language scenes to excursions through a deli, hospital, mall, factory and more! The 12 thematic units organize over 140 topics into full-color, color-coded pages depicting engaging art and meaningful contexts. Numbered word lists correspond with pictures; verbs are bolded and identified by letters; and targeted prepositions and adjectives within phrases are bolded. The clearly illustrated pages include a variety of exercises for practicing and reviewing the vocabulary, plus there’s an index with a verb guide and a pronunciation guide to increase students’ fluency. Bilingual editions present the second language in blue underneath the English word. This is an all new journey to speaking today’s English language . . . and exploring today’s world!
