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 Man-Eaters of Tsavo and Other East African
Adventures. 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 Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational

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