How to turn in German – The Quiz

Written By: Emanuel Updated: March 30, 2024

Hello everyone,

and welcome back your favorite German learning resource, this time with a new episode of  “EFTAWDLW”.
Which is short for “Exercise for the article we did last week”. of course. I mean… duh.
But seriously, last week, we talked about the different ways of translating to turn, and today, we’ll practice that a little bit.

How to turn in German – The Quiz

Now, originally, I wanted to do this really big comprehensive exercise that covers all fringe instances as well. But as I was preparing that, it felt more and more messy and disjointed. So I actually reduced it a little bit again to a managable size.
If there’s too much stuff, too many different contexts and words, then things get confusing.

So instead of bingeing, we’ll do 15 questions that cover the most important aspects of turning in German.
And with each answer, I’ll give you a some commentary as to what’s going on. So you don’t just test yourself, you can actually LEARN.

If you want to review the article you can find it here:

But I’d almost say that it’s better to jump right in, and see how you do and THEN review the article. Like I said… there ARE explanations integrated in the quiz. So maybe that combined with your intuition is already enough.
And then, if you still have open questions or you feel like you need more examples, just leave me a comment.

Oh, and I’d recommend doing the quiz at least twice. Once today, and then again in two or three days. Remember… you’re not doing this to “get  a score”. You’re doing this to learn and get better and for that, the second time matters.

But enough talk. Let’s get active.
Viel Erfolg and viel Spaß :)


And, how did you do? I hope it wasn’t too hard and you have at least one take-away that you could name right now.
If you have any questions about this quiz or about any other aspect of turning in German, then let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to clear it up.
Oh, and come back to do the quiz again in a couple of days (unless you aced it).
As always, I hope you enjoyed it, have a great week and I’ll see you next time.
