Common Mistakes

Do you sometimes find it difficult to decide which word to use? Are you confused because two words look similar or they have a very similar meaning? Do you find it difficult to differentiate between two words for which there is only one word in your own language? Here we look at common mistakes and difficult words, with explanations and examples to help you. You can also do a little quiz to test yourself.

Consult the Duden for the meaning of words and examples of their use.
