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 Marguerite Verne (Scenes from Canadian Life) by Agatha Armour 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.

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 the reader decipher a words meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted
