In 1990 Collins launched its highly successful Phrase Book & Dictionary series which has achieved remarkable sales. In 1998 Collins plans to bring out completely new editions.
Previously `two books in one', the new series will contain `three books in one' - a phrase book, a food guide containing a menu reader and a dictionary.
The phrases are short and easy to use. The language reflects everyday speech - there are no lengthy sentences to struggle and sweat over. The phrases have a simple guide to help with pronunciation. There are also practical tips. The 4-colour layout allows easy access to key information.
Collins Phrase Books aren't just for emergencies. The specially commissioned food guides describe the different regional dishes and wines. They also contain a comprehensive menu reader to guide you through the maze of menus.
