Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are
frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running
English-to-Japanese thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this
edition of Earths Holocaust by Nathaniel Hawthorne was edited for
three audiences. The first includes Japanese-speaking students
enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a
Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language
Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The
second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in
bilingual education programs or Japanese speakers enrolled in
English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students
who are actively building their vocabularies in Japanese in order
to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced
Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's
Japanese Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the
reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an
examination in Japanese or English. TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced

Websters edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader
to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English
words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower
priority compared to difficult, yet commonly used words. Rather
than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a
variety of meanings in Japanese, allowing readers to better grasp
the ambiguity of English, and avoid them using the notes as a pure
translation crutch. Having thereader decipher a words meaning
within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and
understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on
previous pages. I
