The self-scoring, 15-item quiz below relates to the article Day by Day: Day Expressions in German and German for Beginners Lesson 10 and Lesson 12. If you are not completely sure about the German for "day" expressions, then you should review the items above, including the Day by Day Glossary 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.
