The Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary is the most complete and up-to-date dictionary of its size.
The vocabulary is very full and up to date... The new layout with the headwords in colour is excellent. The fuller section on effective communication is also excellent. So the new edition [of the Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary] builds very effectively on the good features of the earlier version. I shall certainly recommend it to my students. - Michael Moriarty, School of Modern Languages, Queen Mary, University of London
