Tigrinya–English Picture Dictionary

I was browsing the web when I found an excellent new e-book entitled: “Tigrinya – English Picture Dictionary” by

It’s primarily designed for native Tigrigna speakers who want to learn English, but it can work in both directions. Also since it’s a picture dictionary you get to see images of the things/descriptions/actions that are being translated and it’s available free for download. They also provide a page where you can download the individual chapters separately and another one where you can pay them to ship you a book with higher definition.

This is excellent, I recommend all Tigrigna students to take full advantage of this learning resource and also the “My Tigrinya Phrasebook” by Peter A. Crowther.

    Thank you so much for this! I am an American working with an Eritrean family and we have not been able to verbally communicate at all. I am so excited to give her this dictionary, it will be a great jumping off point for both of us to start “talking”!!
    Thank you again.

    I am very happy to have eng-tig dictionary online. But it is difficult to read the tigrigna letters because of the font.
