I teach and tutor ESL students from many different countries (at the same time/in the same classroom). The Monolingual Oxford Picture Dictionary is hands down, the best resource I've found to help new students learn and understand the vocabulary "basics" of everyday life in the U.S. Words are arranged by topic/situation, and units can be incorporated into speech and grammar lessons. Workbooks are available to accompany use of the OPD -- they help reinforce the vocabulary and students' comprehension of the topic. There is also an OPD app (purchased from iTunes store), which has all of the same information, with sound and pronunciation -- this too has proven to be a great tool that I use when working one-on-one with a student.

I highly recommend this tool to students and teachers!

To be fair, the book is very well-written and presented. (It could be improved by accent marks for the Russian words, however.) My principal problem is that the book did not meet my needs: I am an English speaker who is trying to learn Russian. This book is intended for Russian speakers who are trying to learn English. For that purpose, it probably would serve very well. But, all the learning exercises are written for practicing English, with Russian guide words. The book will help me a little, but it is not exactly what I need. The product description and some of the reviews indicated that, but I must have overlooked them. I agree with those reviewers who said that this book is written for native Russian speakers trying to learn English, and not vice versa.

This dictionary has a great amount of words and terms that are used in day-to-day conversation. The illustrations are also very colorful and detailed. I got this to replace an aging 1st edition, and I can happily say that the 3rd edition is pretty much better in every way.

This BY FAR is the best book for my newly adopted sons (ages 12 & 13) from China used to understand English and situations here in USA. There are categories of subjects with 1) English word 2) Chinese word 3) Picture of subject/situation. It is set up in categories too so you can learn more about which category/situation would help you the best. We would review the situation (what is a party, civic duty, occupations, etc.) Sometimes I would give them assignments to memorize 1-2 pages and then we would have a quiz on those pages. The boys used their ipads to learn pronounciation and then we went over it together. It gives you something besides flashcards (which we do too) to help them learn common words/situations that will be helpful to them. I think this would be good for persons 10+ to adult coming to the USA to live or visit long term.

My wife is Chinese and is in America less than a year. Her English skills were pretty poor when she came here, but her English skills are what I would fairly call at good level now, and we can talk in detail about most subjects. A large part of her ability to learn English, from such a dissimilar language as Mandarin, was the use of this book. The professor in one of her English classes recommended this book. My wife finds it of particular value in helping her learn English, and she takes it everywhere she goes in the hope she will have time to study English. It is packed with pictures with both the English and Mandarin (in Chinese symbols) names for each item. It is organized by sections beginning with Everyday Language, People, Housing, Food, Clothing, Health, Community, Transportation, Work, Areas of Study, Plants and Animals, and Recreation. She considers this book to be one of her most valuable resources to help her learn and improve her English skills.

One of my Vietnamese parent's gave me some money to order this after I gave them the first one to use at home while they are learning English. It is so good that they plan to take their copy back to Vietnam. The pictures are clear, current and useful. Oxford is a high quality publisher. We use many of their dictionaries in various languages for our ELL classes. Some are bilingual and some are not. This one is in both languages which really makes it nice. The book is divided by subjects such as: home, school, food, shopping, clothes etc. Each page has some questions about the particular picture on that page. The only down side is that the questions are only in English so they may not be able to answer them. There is a workbook that goes with this but I didn't buy it. I was hooked on it after I found a Canadian rendition of it at a book sale. Worth the money.

I just purchased the Oxford Picture Dictionary, second edition, and it is the most amazing picture book I have ever seen! I am in awe by how well-researched and thorough it is. I mean the authors literally thought of everything!

I am very articulate in English, but since it is my third language, there are sometimes random words like a c-clamp or a grasshopper or loafers that I just don't know. It surprises people because my English is so good and they don't hear the trace of an accent and I can write amazing philosophical essays. So there was just this inconsistency between my knowing what a term like "wreak havoc" means and my not knowing what a "grasshopper" is. Weird.

I couldn't find an appropriate book to fill in some of the gaps I have in my vocabulary. The ones I found were either too easy or too abstract. This one is concrete and complete. I probably know about 75% of the words in it, but that 25% I'm going to learn with this, that random 25% that gives me a headache sometimes when I'm trying to describe stuffs, will make me feel like a native speaker. This book is just too perfect.

I'll recommend it to everyone I know.
My bad. Should have read the description more closely. This book is only helpful to English learners, not to Farsi learners like me. The Farsi words are in very fine, hard-to-read printing. So finding the word in English is pretty much worthless. Trying to figure out the Farsi word is next to impossible from the tiny print. Oh well.
