Looking for free German worksheets?
Here at the Linguajunkie blog, you’ll find a nice collection of German worksheets and German PDF workbooks that are meant for beginners. They’re free as a good starting step in your language journey.
Of course, I do suggest getting a German language program later, but first let’s do worksheets.
How to download these German worksheets and workbooks.
- Click on the images below to download the PDFs.
- You can also right click and “save as” to save the PDFs to your device
Remember, since these are worksheets, you need to print out and write on them to do the “work” and get the most out of these.
If you download but don’t use them, you’re never going to learn any German. So, keep that in mind — nothing happens if nothing is done. And you want to speak German one day, right?
1. German Worksheets for the Alphabet
If you’re a beginner…
Then you need to learn the German alphabet so you can read and write in German. Luckily, it’s not too far from the English alphabet although there are some differences — especially with pronunciation. And you’ll need to get used to them. So, download this German worksheet and practice the alphabet.
2. German Worksheets for Greetings
After you learn the alphabet, what’s next?
It’s time to start practicing writing.
And why not start with the must-know basics — how to say hello in German or how to say bye in German. This German worksheet/workbook will help you master the common greetings. By the time you’re done writing them out, you’ll know them like the back of your hand.

Well, this writing workbook teaches you German numbers AND German number-related phrases. Phrases like, “how old are you,” “I am __ years old,” “My phone number is…” and so on. Definitely a very useful workbook to get once you’re done with the Alphabet worksheet above.

So, if you’re learning German because of someone you like, this is a good resource to have. Inside, you’ll get 25+ words and phrases like how to say I love you in German. Then, your job is to print out resource and practice writing the words on the spaces below. It’s that simple.
6. 50+ German Conversational Phrases
What else is fun to learn?
Phrases you will use in conversations with native speakers. And even though you’re learning and writing with these worksheets, you will remember them because you’ve practiced them writing them out. This collection of German worksheets teaches you 50+ phrases like… how to introduce yourself in German, talk about the weather, your plans, and much more.
7. Top 100 German Words
You should also learn the most common words.
These words will give you a solid base of German and help you move forward. Again, just print out this German PDF workbook and practice writing them out.
8. 50 Most Common German Adjectives
Here’s another useful vocabulary boost.
This German workbook teaches you the most common adjectives. 50 is plenty for a beginner. As usual, print it out and go to town writing in it.
Why Learn with German Worksheets & Workbooks?
The reasons are simple.
- You get a chance to practice your German.
- You remember German better through practice (filling out the worksheets).
- You get to speak fluently later… because you’ve practiced.
- You’ll never learn simply by “listening” or “reading about things.” You have to DO things. It’s like learning to dance without actually trying to dance — you simply won’t learn!
The fact is… you can read and listen to things all day long…
But, you will NEVER learn German…
And you will NEVER learn to use it freely and speak it freely like your very own language… if you don’t actually do work — practice writing and speaking.
Hence, worksheets give you a good opportunity to remember what you’ve learned and write things out. Doing this — using the words and writing them — will help you remember them better. So that later, you can freely use them while you’re speaking German.
