I just came across an interesting website, linguee, which gives sample phrases in many languages. For example, in Portuguese I used:
You can select other languages in the drop-down box!
(Without ad-blocker the site is a bit annoying though).
For those learning Europeun Portuguese, I am following a sit-com from Lisbon at the moment:
I watch once without subtitles, and once with. I hope to improve my comprehension of simple dialogues!
Happy new year!
silviad, many thanks for the 2nd link. Very interesting for everyone who’s trying to understand a portuguese dialogue!
Linguee is my favorite online dictionary. It is great for German-English.
Linguee is great, but I also like reverso:
Traduções em contexto de palavras, grupos de palavras e expressões, dicionário gratuito com milhões de exemplos em árabe, alemão, inglês, espanhol, francês, hebraico, italiano, japonês, neerlandês, russo, turca, português, coreano, polonês, romeno,...
Unfortunately it doesn’t have Dutch, but you can use other pairs.
Just want to add my appreciation for Linguee. I use it to help with speaking since it matches translations from one language to the next. So you can find particular expressions, set phrases and collocations quite easily.
