About this application
German Chatterbox is an online language learning application. It allows learners to communicate in German with a number of life-like virtual chat personalities. Chat topics are focused on a range of personal and professional interests, including family and friends, hobbies, university study and job training.
Chatting in German practices the learner's writing, reading and decision making skills in a natural environment where live native speakers are not available. The online chat conversations on this site foster the active review and creative use of grammatical form and syntax and also work as a vocabulary builder.
Each of the site's virtual chat partners comes with supplementary worksheets (Arbeitsmaterialien). Every sheet contains a series of questions that the learner can use to note down information from the conversation for specific language tasks (e.g. creating a family tree, writing a newspaper article, renting an apartment, etc.).
For the best experience (microphone function) it is recommended to run the program (MAC or PC) with the following internet browser:
This site also works on most mobile devices.
