Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Finnish thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Hard Times by Charles Dickens was edited for three audiences. The first includes Finnish-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 Finnish speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Finnish in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement� (AP�) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Finnish Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Finnish or English.<br>TOEFL�, TOEIC�, AP� and Advanced Placement� are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.
