My favourite bilingual dictionary

picture from this site

This learner's bilingual dictionary was seven years in the making before its publication in 2010 by Editorial Vértice. Edited by Francisco Sánchez Benedito and Francisco Gámez Gámez, it is probably the best medium-sized bilingual dictionary currently on sale:

- Comprehensive and up-to-date

- Clear layout
- Accurate translations with collocations and notes to help you use the words correctly
- Special attention to idioms, sayings and phrasal verbs
- Extensive coverage of informal, vulgar and taboo language
- All entries pronounced on DVD-ROM by native speakers
- Notes on grammar, usage and culture
- Collection of the most common mistakes by Spanish speakers
- Useful Appendices
