German Nouns and Their Articles

Noun + Article

In German, every noun has a gender and a corresponding article. It’s important to learn these together.


There are general rules or grouping of nouns, either by subject area or by which letters they end on. As always, there are exceptions to these rules. These rules and, when applicable, exceptions are integrated into the game at certain points.
