Learning DE Grammar - A2 / B1 level - a useful resource

http://www.deutschseite.de/index.html

I found his site to be an excellent resource, and might be for you too.


Quote:
In September 2005 I started writing the first simple excercises to offer an easy way to Cathy learn my language.
At this time I did not plan to publish anything. During the following years our project grew more and more and today it contains:

365 pages + 196 pages grammar solutions
110 pages + 62 pages vocabulary solutions
44 pages + 21 pages of text pages work solutions
It took me a lot of time to write all the HTML code and transfer all the pages into printer friendly PDF files.
In 2007 I stopped counting when I reached 1500 hours of work.

I've always liked dict.cc for their vocab trainer. They also have a free iPhone application which has an internet free dictionary.

This resource from a Uni in Texas was useful as well:

Yes thanks everybody! I found online sites really help. Here's one I like for learning words, and it works well on an iPhone, on the bus. Amazingly it's free but if you want sound/pronunciation you have to pay:

Unfortunately I'm using Tapatalk on the iPhone and it doesn't show a lot of things, like the extra buttons.
Here's another good website for conjugating verbs:
http://www.verbix.com/languages/german.shtml

If anyone has done an online course and it worked well, I'd like to hear about it. My time is getting limited but I don't want to stop learning. Doing it online from home would help a lot. I'm at B2 level now but I'd like to try and get a certificate.

Regards,
Dan

Re: Learning DE Grammar - A2 / B1 level - a useful resource

I found this site today, http://www.nthuleen.com/101/index.html refered from the one in this thread.

Between these two sites I think I might just finally be getting the hang of this German thing.

Re: Learning DE Grammar - A2 / B1 level - a useful resource

the free course part of http://www.deutschakademie.de/online...hkurs/english/ is also very helpful, with forums where you can leave your texts to be checked by german teachers. and lots of exercises with answers.

best luck to all german learners

Deutsche Welle website. The German course is available in 30 different languages including English. The course is covered as a part of an interesting story. Its an audio plus pdf course material.

Have fun,

Cheers!

Re: Learning DE Grammar - A2 / B1 level - a useful resource

Hi,

I found the Babbel.com iPhone app to be very good, especially since it's free:
http://www.babbel.com/a#/flash/navig...ation/homepage

I have not tried the Babbel.com website much yet. I would like to hear what others think of it? I'm at the B1/B2 level and I find it harder to find good online sites for learning. I would be very interested in recommendations. The online sites do seem to be getting better all the time.

Regards,
Dan

I tried the Babbel.com website last night. I was hoping to find something good for practicing sentence structure, however, it seems like they just have you attempt writing a text and then you can send to others to be evaluated. Not very impressive.

The vocabulary exercises seem very good. You start off slowly and then build up to the full spelling of the word. I was hoping they might have something like that for sentences, especially to help with word order.
