About These Sentences

  • This part of our website uses sentences from the Tatoeba Project. (Read About the Tatoeba Project)
  • Please read the warning about the sentences from the Tatoeba Project so you clearly understand that sentences from the Tatoeba Project are not free of errors.
  • I have only used English sentences that I have personally proofread and sentences by native speakers of the other languages, so most sentences should be error-free and sound natural. However, there is still a chance that some of these sentences aren't correct.
  • I have also attempted to filter out sentences that are potentially offensive and not appropriate for all ages and cultures. If you find something that should be removed, please send me a "bug report."
  • These are sorted by length, with the shortest sentences first.

Would you like to help?

  • Currently, there are just over 460,000 good, proofread English sentences. About half of these have audio files.
  • If you are a native speaker of one of these languages, you can join the Tatoeba Project and help by adding translations for the English sentences that aren't yet translated.
  • If your native language isn't here, the Tatoeba Project can add your language.
