Online Books in both English & Chinese

This list of translated English masterpieces (e.g. War and Peace, Tom Sawyer) from Beijing University is for Chinese students learning English, but is useful to any learner because it includes both the Chinese and English versions.



If you're interested in reading Chinese novels, try the Project Gutenberg's growing Chinese section (more than 50 books are available).


Are you learning intermediate or advanced-level Chinese? Here is Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice (written in 1813), with English text and Chinese translation presented side by side for easy comparison.

The English text of Pride and Prejudice can be found at the The Project Gutenberg site. The Chinese translation can be found at Beijing University's English novels page.
