I'm kind of a beginner here and I often have problem remembering the vocabulary I learn and was thinking if someone could help and tell me where to find those words actually being used, besides if you Know a dictionary that has examples in it pls tell me,thanks :)

  • Is it ok if other people demonstrate the use of language?

Just enter the character you're interested and it'll list several sentences containing the character, I can't guarantee the quality though, I rarely use this service.


This is my go-to dictionary, for many characters it'll show you the stroke order and for many words it'll even show you example usage, though to be honest I've noticed that the example usage doesn't always align with the definition given.

Hacking Chinese has an article 21 essential dictionaries and corpora for learning Chinese which lists multiple example-sentence websites.

I personally use:
