Websites I use to learn German
- Duolingo! - the best :)
- Lingocracy http://www.lingocracy.com/a/home - For reading and learning words. There aren't so many German reading materials though.
- Bliu Bliu http://bliubliu.com/ - It's really a fun way to learn vocabulary!
- Deutsche Welle (DW) Deutsch Interaktiv - I took the online course A1 before I started using Duolingo. The courses are great :)
- http://www.languageguide.org/german/vocabulary/ - Basic vocab! Interactive pictures + good audio quality
- I used to use Quizlet to make flashcards but not anymore because it's kind of troublesome.
- http://www.phrasen.com/ - idioms/phrases! I find it super useful :)
There are so many great materials out there. :) These above have probably been all recommended here already, but they worked for me so I'd like to share them again!
Also, was sind eure Lieblings-Websites? :)
=========Update 21.May, websites shared in comments! Danke :) =========
@l.josephine 1. http://lang-8.com for practicing writing. I've been working on increasing my fluency with repeat corrections. I've been a premium member for almost four years. (I started when I was learning Italian.) 2. http://memrise.com the advanced german vocab is very nice. It's new to me, but I already like it.
@fabio.alves2013 http://www.lingoda.com -- You can attend as many classes as you are able to on a daily basis, at a very low price (in my opinion). I think it's worth trying.
@DeFriezB I like to use, on top of Duolingo, the German MindSnacks app. It's good for building vocabulary. (It cost's a few dollars though...)
@FrankKool Mänchmal sehe ich das ZDF heute Journal an: http://www.heute.de/zdfheute-nachrichten-startseite-3998.html Und ich habe viele Videos am YouTube gesehen über Komputerspielen ('Let's Play' videos) oder zum beispiel über Geschichte oder Kämpfsporten oder etwas anderes.
@BastianPL Wow! Danke sehr! Ich benutze auch lang8.com. Dort können Sie Texte zu schreiben, und andere Benutzer zu verbessern.
@RhysJohnson92 I find that Babbel is a decent website for language, I use it for Danish. I'd recommend giving it a look if you haven't already. You do have to pay for it though
@AlexandreS937716 I also like the games and interactive learning from Goethe Institut. Zum Bespeil Himmelssheibe von Nebra und Unsere Straße! Viel Spaß!
@SamTowell1 http://www.fluentin3months.com/learning-with-texts/ ----> fi3m.com/lwt The first site explains the second and reading the instructions and following instruction links is essentail, as it be quite hard to get to grips with, it only takes 15ish minutes. Really recommend it!
@leilani238 leo.de is an excellent dictionary site between German and many other languages that's got words and phrases that Duolingo's rollovers don't have as well as more alternate translations and easily-accessible tables of forms for each word.
@johnysunday Ich liebe Deutsch für euch und Easy German auf youtube
@anthony62490 Many of you will know of this one already, but I really enjoyed Yabla for German videos.https://german.yabla.com/ Most of the site is subscription based, but there are a few free videos and the content is pretty good from what I can tell.
Excellent choices I love Duolingo more than anything else after it I prefer Deutsche Welle. It is great and also you can watch their series (made for german learners to learn german) in their youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxUWIEL-USsiPak0Qy6_vVg
In general I'm a fan of:
- http://lang-8.com for practicing writing. I've been working on increasing my fluency with repeat corrections. I've been a premium member for almost four years. (I started when I was learning Italian.)
- http://memrise.com the advanced german vocab is very nice. It's new to me, but I already like it.
The immersion tab translations have been helping me a lot too. Danke für diene Vorschläge baer07!

Danke! Wir suchen Arbeitsblaetter fuer unsere Sohn. Er hat schon viel von Duolingo gerlernt, aber er musst auch etwas Schreiben. Ideen? Thanks! We are looking for printable worksheeets for our son. He has learned a lot through Duolingo, but he needs to also do some writing. Ideas?
For me: http://www.memrise.com/home/ is the best place to learn vocabulary. Two recommended games for learning vocabulary from other post are: https://babadum.com/ and http://www.funeasylearn.com/de/. Two sites which are good and comprehensive are: http://www.babbel.com/dashboard and http://www.busuu.com/enc/. Apps which I recommend are: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=da.app.grammatiktrainer (the site from which you can learn on-line: http://www.deutschakademie.de/online-deutschkurs/); https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nicolatesser.germanadjectivedeclension and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nicolatesser.germanverbpreposition.
I've tried a lot of these but the one that has really helped me: http://www.authenticgermanlearning.com/master-german-grammar-without-effort/ and here is his Youtube channel - he uploads a new video every day and he just talks about everyday stuff. Just watch the videos and you will just learn intuitively. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcNBwmeFr0IeLVlP_49glrA
Linguee/DeepL is fantastic!
Netflix has German shows and you can get the subtitles.
Nancy Thuleen does online German worksheets, for grammar practice and has answer keys.
Correll U has Grimm Grammar which uses fairy tales to go over pieces of grammar, and exercises online to work with. https://coerll.utexas.edu/gg/gr/con_06.html
Great list- thank you! I’ll pass it on to my German students. They find my German language blog quite helpful where I regularly post on various topics in German grammar- from adjective declensions, the cases, to German word order- and I try to explain tricky German words.
