This dictionary is compiled for the foreigners who have mastered a certain amount of the Chinese language. It can also be used as a reference for those teaching Chinese as a foreign language as well as Chinese teachers and students in college, primary schools and middle schools.
In order to meet the needs of teaching Chinese as a foreign language, we selected 420 groups of synonyms from the 8822 commonly-used words of “The Outline of Grade of Chinese Words and Characters for HSK (the Chinese Abbreviation for Chinese Proficiency Test)”. In differentiating the different words in each group, we did our best to distinguish them in meaning, usage, collocation, etc. To help foreign learners have better comprehension, all the notes and examples have English translation respectively.
