The TalkingPEN edition of the best-selling pictorial dual language talking dictionary gives learners instant access to over 650 widely used words, spoken by native speakers. These are sorted into 34 themes: Myself, House and Contents, Classroom, Playground, Town, Road Safety, Weather, Time, Day, Numbers, Opposites, Seaside, Colours, Family, Wild Animals, Fruit, Vegetables, Meal Time, Farm Animals, Computers, Dressing Up, School Bag, Toys and Games, Sport, Music, Space, Months of the Year, Family, Clothes... Simply touch the word with the TalkingPEN and hear it spoken either in English or the language of your choice.
