New French Dictionaries

Friday 20th September 2019

The  Modern  Languages  Department  is  delighted  to  announce  the arrival  of  its  new  French  dictionaries !

There  will  be  a  new  set  in Rooms  214, 212, 210 and 209  next week.

They’re  a bit  bigger  and more  clearly  laid-out  than  the  set  we  have  been using  up  to now  and  come  with  free  online  support.  And  colour  photos !  As  the French  say  ‘ C’est  du   jamais   vu ! ‘

If  any  of  our  keen  young  linguists  would like  to  add  one  to  their  Christmas  list,  it’s  the  Oxford Learner’s  Dictionary  (ISBN  978-0-19-840798-0).
