It's a dictionary. It has English words and German words. Lots of them. ( )

Excellent German English dictionary from Collins. In two colours so makes looking up words very easy, and the dictionary also covers grammar points such as genders, plurals, irregular verbs, etc. Packed with examples of how words are used and it also has a "Language in Use" section ( )

Shit, Collins English-German dictionary, what happened to you? I got you because I thought you were good last time I was in Austria, and also you were light, and then I needed you all of five times (meine Deutsch wird ja besser!) and you were one for five only. They need a dictionary that doesn't bother with all the easy words that anyone actually having achieved the level of skill in a language necessary to allow them to communicate and require a dictionary in the first place, and just skips to the good stuff.

Bigger than my last German-English dictionary, yet with a lower lookup-success rate. Es geht in die Bude! Or more accurately, in die Mülltonne, since it fell apart yesterday. Gonna go dictionary shopping! ( )

Best language dictionary ever, largely because of the twisted sense of humor which shows through in the usage examples. ( )
