Danish Verb Blitz now on iOS: Dansk practice for Apple users!

Another Scandinavian language joins our growing range of iOS grammar drill apps with the release of Danish Verb Blitz for iOS this week.

With well over 100 verbs to learn, review and drill, it’s a great way to hone your language skills. The featured verbs are also amongst the commonest words in the language. That makes the app is a great tool for expanding your vocabulary, too.

Danish drill

The core of the app is its verb reference engine, with a searchable list of verbs with full conjugations. But the app tackles both meaning and conjugation, with the familiar set of games:

  • Infinitive quiz / grid quiz
  • Conjugation quiz
  • Gapfill quiz

Gapfill is one of our favourites, as it really tests your knowledge of written forms – master those spellings!

As well as the activities, there’s a handy tracking system. Using a simple score tracker through the games, you can check at any point which verbs you’ve found trickiest.

Scandinavian trio

Our new dansk addition completes a trio of new apps on the App Store, representing three mainland Scandinavian languages. If you’re a fan of them all, check out Norwegian (Bokmål) Verb Blitz and Swedish Verb Blitz for iOS, too.

Not using an Apple device? All the languages are also available in our Android collection, too. Our full Android catalogue can be found here.
