The OPD English-Chinese Third Canadian Edition is an illustrated, theme-based dictionary for second-language learners. Providing a fully translated table of contents, it offers Chinese speakers the additional advantage of having words and phrases defined in their native language. This four-colour dictionary defines words through pictures, and presents each new word in context. Along with its workbooks and many other components, the OPD can be used as a reference book or as text for high school or adult ESL students at the beginner level.
