German learning app - recommendation

[deactivated user]

    Hallo deutsche Studenten

    Here's an app that I've been using for the past couple of months to complement the Duolingo course:

    Learn German Vocabulary - 6,000 Words


    After testing several apps this is the one I think is the best. There is a wide range of themes and you can translate, fill in the blanks, tap answers... it's quite good to be honest. Give it a try, it's worth it.

    I can also recommend its "brother" app, this one dedicated to phrases:

    Learn German Phrasebook - 5000 Phrases


    I'm posting this on the German channel but for those of you currently learning other languages, they also offer the app in several others. Check their offer here:

    Thank you for the suggestion!! :)

    Do you know what is the approximate level of difficulty there? For example, compared to Duolingo - easier, harder, about the same etc...?

      The level of difficulty on the app is related to the number of words/phrases available. So for Beginner you'll have 1000 words to study, Intermediate adds 2000 more and Advanced ads 3000.

      The way they count words there is different from Duolingo... over here, for instance, Katze and Kazten count as two words... as different verb conjugations also do. In the app they're unique words... so 1000 is a lot.

      To answer your question... the beginner level on the app is about the same as Duolingo.


      Thanks a lot! I will definitely try that :) I especially need to increase my vocabulary and 6000 words seems a really good challenge!

          Fixed now.


          Probably the links are not working because of Duolingo's formatting. To solve this problem you should simply remove the "&hl=en" part at the end of the links. You can see that the "&hl" is not being displayed.

            It was indeed that... a formatting issue. All is fixed now.

            Thanks for the help, appreciated.


            Seems to not work on Apple products unfortunately.

              A fellow Duolingo member found it out for other platforms:

                Oh sorry... forgot to mention my recommendation was for Android systems.
