Can someone recommend me a good translation dictionary for learning English words in Spanish.. I speak English and am trying to learn Spanish.. there are a lot of different dialects and dictionaries. I would like a carry around translation dictionary that includes pronunciation.. does anyone know of any good ones?
Thanks,
S.

A really cheap one, which has usage by country, is the Bantam New College Spanish/English dictionary. My old one fell apart (after several years) and I just bought another one for $5 something. This dictionary only goes so far, though -- definitely not top of the class. I've heard that the American Heritage dictionary is good, but don't own one myself.

Thanks, Quentin. Right after I posted, I read the original message again and quickly deleted my message. I guess I wasn't fast enough for you though and you caught me! And I'll certainly back you up on the Franklin electronic dictionary recommendation. They are wonderful! But just to stick to my original message a little, if you have a cellphone with internet capabilities, SpanishDict.com loads wonderfully. I use it on my iPhone all the time with great results.

I think you missed the part about he wants to carry it around. I have a Franklin electronic dictionary (Merriam-Webster) that articulates the words at the press of a button. They're fairly cheap if you pick one up on eBay.

Hi Sandra
Yes they do have them with speech facility but they do come a little bit dearer. I myself have a Franklin (Merriam-Webster) without a speech function.
