1) Franklin is a great buy.

2) The Firefly Spanish/English Visual Dictionary contains thousands of pictures of things we need to know. (Like all the parts of a car, food, vegatables, people, etc)

3) Wordreference.com: Great free online dictionary.

4) http://buscon.rae.es/diccionario/drae.htm "DICCIONARIO DE LA LENGUA ESPAÑOLA
". This website is the Royal Acadamy of Spanish and therefore as far as Spain is concerned, the ultimate spanish dictionary. It is entirely in Spanish, but contains lots of useful information.

I have not totally had the time to use it as much as I would like, but I bought a dictionary called Mi Primer Diccionario Everest after browsing through several dictionaries in a Spanish language bookstore when I was in NYC. It is a children's dictionary with some pictures, large text, and 1100 words. It is Spanish-Spanish and you can read through the dictionary and learn by doing that. Even if you know what the word means, you learn words by reading the definition in Spanish. Plus if you don't know the word and don't understand the definition, the pictures can help! Good for intermediate level or high beginner students.
