GENDER GENIE

This tool will allow you to assess and train grammatical gender.
To start, please select a language, and how many words to test:

Danish
French
German
Norwegian
Spanish
Portuguese

Gender Genie was originally developed by Eckhard Bick as holiday entertainment for his bilingual daughter, Ina Bick-Nielsen, who thinks that grammatical gender is about tasting a word on your tongue rather than learning it from a list.

Like much of modern language software, the human brain is all about rich data and pattern matching - in the case of grammatical gender, word endings. Which is why Gender Genie, after each round, will provide endings-based statistical rules to help you with difficult words.

If you teach a language that is not on the list, or have a bilingual child youself, you are welcome to provide a word list with gender markup in your language, and we will be happy to add it to the quiz.

We are actively working on replacing all our Java with portable HTML5.
