- Lingolia Deutsch
Lingolia is a well organized site that displays overviews of grammar and syntax rules, and has a good collection of interactive exercises sorted by topic. The exercises are not only multiple choice, and allow the user to practice writing out phrases on their own, umlauts provided. This page lays out examples and exceptions to rules, with easily understood explanations.
This page allows the user to practice by grammar, vocab, or conjugation topic in a flashcard format. Questions are displayed, and the user can think of the answer before clicking “answer” to verify they were correct. This page also provides a ‘theory’ component wherein different patterns and grammar rules are explained with examples.
This is a simple page containing German exercises sorted by grammar categories, with concentrations on typical “problem areas.” The problems are sorted by difficulty, and are self-correcting. The format is very easy to use. However, there are a limited number of problems for each type. This page does not require making an account, though making a free account will allow one to save their progress.
- Deutsch Akademie German Grammar Trainer
Deutsch Akademie also sorts problems by grammar categories, allowing for multiple choice answering of questions. The format can be somewhat confusing as answers are not broken up by space, but the page allows the user to customize by level and number of problems.
