I often get asked by my students how they can extend their vocabulary. One way is via Twitter. If you are new to Twitter or haven’t used it much it, it’s a great way to learn new German words. I have found ten people, who offer a German word, sentence or activity of the day. Follow them, spend a few minutes every day with those new words and – hey presto – you are extending your German vocabulary ➡
Update August 2015: Some of the original links I gave have stopped tweeting, so I have deleted them and added some new ones!
DW – Learn German offers lots of exercise and information

OxfordEDMFL has a German word of the day (also other languages)
