These free advanced-level German worksheets provide supplemental practice or exercises for advanced-level German students. All worksheets are in Windows Word format. They are intended as additional practice to complement a regular textbook or German course. They may contain some basic grammar information, but are not sufficient to learn new concepts. The answers to the exercises, if available, are found on a separate sheet with each file.
