A ridiculous number of example sentences. In multiple languages. Free


Work in progress. The English translations are a bit strange sometimes.

The Tatoeba Project allows you to look up example sentences in dozens of languages for whatever word you want to look up. It relies on native speakers to submit example sentences so if you like the project, feel free to submit some yourself!

One of the most beneficial things you can do for your Chinese vocabulary studies is to use the word you are studying in example sentences. When making these, I highly recommend Lang-8 to try out your sentence and have native speakers correct any mistakes. However, if you just want to read through some example sentences, then The Tatoeba Project is what you are going to want to check out.

The Tatoeba Project is a gathering of example sentences in dozens of different languages. You type in the word you want to see used, choose the language you want to see it in, and it gives you example sentences that will show the correct usage of the word. People from all over the world have submitted example sentences in their native language for the benefit of other language learners. It is kind of inspiring to see people from all over the world united in the hopes to aid language learners. Truly a wonderful project.

Here is their video explanation of The Tatoeba Project


The Tatoeba Project is still a work in progress. There certainly are some words that do not have any example sentences yet. Very few of the example sentences have recordings that go along with them. The English translations can be a little strange sometimes. If you can look passed these, The Tatoeba Project is a fantastic website that will be sure to prove itself invaluable.
