German Cases and Genders

I tend to (try to) learn languages by aiming to pick up enough to be understood as quickly as possible, and leaving the details until never.
So far, this has left me bad at german genders.

This article is an attempt to fix that: A gender and cases game.

How to play

It shows an english phrase. It is not correct english, but should be understandable.

You have to write the equivalent german phrase, using up, down, left, right and spacebar to select words to fill in the blanks.

Note that my intention is that the german phrase *is* correct, even though the english one is not. The words were entered in manually, and I've checked reasonably carefully, but there will doubtlessly be errors or exceptions that I've missed.

The phrases are not idiomatic: It randomly chooses sentence parts and puts them together. Don't learn phrases from this.

Firstly, some examples:

I normally do articles about physics. For instance this is an article where I try to explain quantum mechanics using simulations instead of maths - it should be accessible to non-physicists.

Other Articles:


A simple demo of a simulation of an atmosphere. It looks quite cool, but there's not a lot you can do with it yet, and the physics isn't yet all that accurate.

Mars Lander

An interactive simulation of a Mars Lander trying to land on Mars. The term "interactive" here means that you have to write the software, in Javascript, that will land the probe.

Experimental Flying Game

Fly around in a plane. Some physics, but mainly just playing with websockets. If you can get a friend to play at the same time, you should be able to shoot each other down.
