Let's practice German possessive pronouns with some exercises. While German possessive pronouns are not too difficult to learn, but they do require a little memorization.

Before diving in, make sure you understand how German declension works, since German pronouns - like all other German nouns - decline & change their forms depending on their gender, number & role in the sentence.

If you are unsure about this, check out our free online German lessons & our articles on the German cases, especially the tutorials on the nominative & the accusative case.

But now let's dive into some exercises to practice German possessive pronouns.
