New Chinese- English dictionary makes debut

Retired English teacher Uncle Tham in Singapore told me while we met at Orchard Road's Kinokuniya yesterday morning that he finds the very new Chinese-English Dictionary published by China's Foreign Language Press truly useful and also easy to use but it may take a while for it to be available in bookshops in Malaysia and Singapore. Besides being an official language of the United Nations since 1945, Chinese is used by the largest number of people on earth, especially in the economically most vibrant areas of the contemporary world, namely mainland China and Taiwan as well as Hong Kong and Macau.
