Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are
frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running
English-to-Chinese Simplified thesaurus at the bottom of each page,
this edition of Georgies Present (Tales of Newfoundland) by Miss
Brightwell was edited for three audiences. The first includes
Chinese Simplified-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 Chinese Simplified speakers enrolled in English-speaking
schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively
building their vocabularies in Chinese Simplified in order to take
foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP)
or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Chinese Simplified
Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader
can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in
Chinese Simplified or English. TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced
Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which

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 Chinese Simplified, allowing readers to
better grasp theambiguity of English, and avoid them using the
notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a
words meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retent
