Noun Gender in German

Self-Scoring Quiz | der - die - das

German Tests > Gender Quiz 1 > Gender Quiz 2

This is our second self-grading, 20-item quiz on noun gender in German. It is based on German for Beginners Lesson 3 and the articles Gender Hints and Noun Suffixes and Gender. If you are not completely sure about German genders and the definite article, then you should review those items before attempting the following quiz.

Click the button next to the answer you want. When you reach the bottom of the quiz you'll be able to find out your percentage score. The answers will be listed in the scroll box just below the "Get Score" button, but you might want to avoid the answers if you got less than 100%, and try again until you get it right.

HINT: If you want to revise your answers after getting your score, don't use the "Clear" button unless you want to re-mark all the answers. Just change the answers you think need changing—then click on the "Get Score" button again. But no peeking at the answers!
