Homework help for German is just a click away!
Wegweiser 2

Wegweiser Okay, homework is rarely anyone's favorite subject, but it's an important one. And if you're a student of German at a school, college or university, the topic of Hausaufgaben or Hausarbeiten is also one you can't avoid. We're here to help!

Here at the German Language site, help for your German assignments (Deutschaufgaben) is usually just a click away. This article is designed to help you find what you need when you need it. With a little patience (mit etwas Geduld), you'll learn to navigate around here easily. If you take the time to read this page, you'll be rewarded with a better understanding of how to find your way around this site. There's a lot of stuff, so it pays to know what you're doing!

Before we concentrate specifically on HOMEWORK, a quick word about an earlier article that can help with navigation in general at this site. Der Wegweiser, the directional sign, signpost or guide, was the theme of an article by that name. It lists the various places to head when you're looking for something at this site.

Below we list some pages specifically related to helping you with German homework.


Subjects
On the left side of every page, including this one, you'll find a list of "Subjects" related to German. Each of these Subjects leads to links for that topic. One of the Subjects is "Homework Help" (described below). Another is "Grammar." For a complete list of all the Subjects for German, just click on Subject Library. Below we describe a few "Subjects" that you may find helpful for homework.
