Hebrew Questions

Hello all,

I am wondering if any of you could recommend a decent Hebrew-English dictionary for beginning students.

Desired features include nikeidot (vowel points), part of speech identification, Hebrew/Israeli idioms and slang, NO TRANSLITERATION PLEASE (I can't stand it!!). Additionally, one of the primary complaints I see on Amazon is that the dictionary is more suitable for Hebrew speakers learning English. not the other way around.

Additionally, I am looking for a detailed grammar guide for Hebrew. I am a native English speaker, but I took two years of ESL in high school, so my understanding of the intricacies of my mother tongue is deep. *shudders* Memorising irregular verb conjugations is not fun at all.

Thank you all!
