Here is a new game that can help you learn de and het nouns.
http://www.languagestudygames.com/

This is the first in a series of grammar games. They are designed primarily for native English speakers at beginner or intermediate level. If you have any suggestions or feedback, we would love to hear from you.

Hoi Dora
Heel goed!
It was a bit fast moving but got the hang of it after a few minutes and scored 84% I have saved the link so I can have another go when I get time. This is a fun way of learning but you have to be fast on the mouse :D

Groetjes

Yes, I have had someone else remark that it was fast. I think you want to learn to respond without stopping to think. If you are in a conversation and need to know the gender of a word you must be able to think of it right away. An earlier version adapted its speed based on the skill of the player and the next version will too.

Should I bill it as a speed-building exercise?
