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

Jane Eyre is super well-suited to a shoujo manga format - very soapy! I liked the cute art, though backgrounds were sometimes a little sparse. The plot moves pretty quickly to cover childhood through maturity, and parts are inevitably summarized, but key events got good coverage, and the central rom...
Przez całą powieść oczekiwałam czegoś dziwnego. W końcu losy Jane Eyre miały być dziwne jak mówi tytuł. Ale w powieści nie znajdziemy nic dziwnego. Za to możemy odnaleźć przepiękną historię pełną łez, uśmiechu... pełną przygód. Ta historia pozostanie z nami do końca życia, bo nie sposób o niej zapom...
I was surprised by this combination: english classic literature with japanese popular culture in the form of manga comics. It was strange to read backwards (the correct way to read manga is explained in the book) but I got used to it. I read Pride and Prejudice and Emma by Jane Austen and Jane Eyre...
