So this may be weird and stupid but I’m about to rant about it anyway. So today I had to buy a new French dictionary because the one they made me buy for class (top half of photo) is horrible. I mean sure it’s a “great dictionary” but whatever I don’t care. Maybe I have the comprehension level of a 5 yr old, whatever. Point is I can’t understand your stupid dictionary. I don’t want to have to look up the words IN a definition OF a word I don’t know. (Random example in the picture above) And I definitely don’t want to see the root of the unknown word in the definition. How would it help you if I said “oh you don’t know what suitcase is? It’s a case you can put your suits in! DUH!” If I don’t know what a suit or a case is chances are I don’t know what a suitcase is either…. Just saying. And while it may just seem like I’m complaining about nothing when this happens with almost every word I need to look up it becomes frustrating, an confusing, and makes me feel stupid. Sure it may be a more informative text, but as a foreigner, it’s just another thing that’s causing me unneeded stress in class. My suggestion, if you’re looking for a French - French dictionary and you’re not fluent in French, go with Larousse.
