Besta Electronic Dictionary

Postby elle_yv@hotmail.com » Fri Aug 13, 2010 9:28 am

Hi all,

Would like to check any parents have purchased BESTA Electronic dictionary for their kids in Primary school.

As my girl in P4 would like to buy one, hope to get some advise whether it is useful or not?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm a student.

I have the BESTA Electronic Dictionary, the one approved by MOE.

Generally the MOE approved ones covers the basic phrases and words.

Which model are you referring to?

the normal besta that the child uses for school exam is around $30 and u have to refer to MOE website for the approved version or u can get the creative brand - around same price

If u want the better Besta - with foreign languages, translation - I got one around $600+. It was very useful for a start - after a while, the child may stop using it and the info in them can be obtained fm internet

My BESTA dictionary has been quite useful in school. At home, I go to this website:nciku.com This website offers translation, though I do not know the accuracy in the sample sentences it provides. But it works well for me.

Besta CD668s

If you're planning to use the Besta at home, CD668s is very reliable...I use it a lot now...don't have to refer to dictionary anymore. It also has Collins dictionary (part of the package).

Does this Besta CD668s come with Chinese-English and English-Chinese translation function?

Also does it have an audio function where I can hear the sound of the word? My Mandarin's not too good, so need all the help I can get to help my dd. :oops: :oops:

Thanks

Yes it does. I have a CD668s at home too - it's a very good investment. My kids use them on a daily basis too.
