I recently received an email from Burak Bilgin who let me know about his website LearnPractice.com for the Dutch Australian links page.

After trying it out myself, I thought it was worth a blog post to highlight this great tool for those learning Dutch.

It’s quick and easy to sign up for a free account and this then gives you access to over 800 free online exercises. You can choose from a variety of quiz categories as this screenshot shows:

What I liked most was the instant feedback.  When I’m learning, I like to know immediately what I’ve done wrong, or what I have right.   When you have a correct answer, you go straight through to the next question, with “That was right” on the top of the screen (referring to the previous question).

In the image below you can see, when I had an incorrect answer, it gives me the chance to be able to see where I went wrong and correct myself.  (In this case, I had an extra “a” in kwart)

At the end of a quiz, it will summarise your score.  I also like that this was based on questions I had right the first time – not including the ones I corrected myself on with assistance.  It also shows a summary of my incorrect answers, giving me a good base to revise.

Good luck!  I’d love a comment below if you have tried out this website to hear how you went.
