German websites for learners

German Web addresses (URL) are normally very simple. If you know the name of a company, organisation, newspaper etc, it's worth a try to type in the name after the www and add 'de'. You normally don't have to worry about 'org', 'ac', 'co' etc. Some big companies might have 'com' or 'net' instead of 'de' as a suffix. For example, if you are interested to find out about Audi cars, the address is: www.audi.de.  You might want to find out some information about the university in Frankfurt, the address is www.uni-frankfurt.de  or the Social Democratic party' s website is www.spd.de  Aldi's superstore site is on www.aldi.com.   Many German websites offer you an English language version.

The address ending for Germany is 'de', for Austria 'at', for Switzerland 'ch' and 'li' for Liechtenstein.
