This edition is written in English. However, there is a running
Chinese Simplified thesaurus at the bottom of each page for the
more difficult English words highlighted in the text. There are
many editions of The Love Affairs of a Bibliomaniac. This edition
would be useful if you would like to enrich your Chinese
Simplified-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for
preparation in advanced of college examinations. Webster's 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" English words. Rather
than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a
variety of meanings in Chinese Simplified, allowing readers to
better grasp the ambiguity of English without using the notes as a
pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's
meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and
understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on
previous pages. This edition is helpful to 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. Students who are actively building their
vocabularies in Chinese Simplified or English may also find this
useful for Advanced Placement (AP ) tests. TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and

book is one of a series of Webster's paperbacks that allows the
reader to obtain more value from the experience of reading.
