It also provides new and recent words, including internet vocabulary, which enables students to understand and properly use the most up-to-date expressions alongside everyday language.

Useful sections on common social interactions are included, along with an invaluable guide to the finer nuances of body language.

Clear, readable, and easy to consult, this is an essential reference for learners seeking access to one of the world's most important languages.
