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. In languages like Japanese and Chinese, The Tatoeba Project is thriving.  There are hundreds of thousands of example sentences to choose from.  Unfortunately, that is not the case in Korean.  There are very few example sentences written in Korean… for now.  Who knows by the time you read this things could be a lot different.  If they can get more people to submit example sentences, the site would prove to be invaluable.
