This completely revised edition of the Diccionario Oxford Pocket contains the latest vocabulary and many new additional features, with a focus on helping students to build their vocabulary and improve their English skills.

New in this edition is an 'I can talk about...' section which helps students to expand their topic vocabulary and then encourages them to make active use of it. This section also helps students to develop their dictionary skills and to make the most of the dictionary.

Another new feature is a communication section, which gives useful examples of everyday English and provides practice exercises to develop students' speaking and vocabulary skills.

The Oxford 3000™ keywords are highlighted to help students identify the most important words to learn.

The example sentences are corpus-based, which means they are authentic, natural, and up-to-date. Usage notes throughout the dictionary explain difficult or confusing words or phrases, or give extra information about grammar or aspects of life in Britain and America. More than 30 new usage notes have been added to this edition. Using this dictionary, students not only learn the meaning of the word, but also how to use it correctly.

Illustrations help students understand difficult words, and study pages provide useful information for reference, including false friends, spelling, geographical names, expressions involving numbers, and colour maps of Great Britain, the United States of America and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and the European Union.

With its clear layout, two-colour design, and durable flexible cover, the Diccionario Oxford Pocket para estudiantes de inglés is an easy-to-use, practical reference companion for students.
