The learning habits of kids and teens have changed massively. This change bears inevitable consequences for the German lessons and German teacher training. While almost all educational institutions have the infrastructure and the hardware required to offer digitised lessons, most lack the necessary software as well as the teacher training.

MintiCity demonstrates how learning German in today’s world can work in schools and support educators from the very first step.

” I see the huge effect that this system has on pupils, in that they learn German faster and more enthusiastically with it. Children do not find learning fun, but they like playing. And the secret of MintiCity is this connection – learning through playing.A video report from Justus-von-Liebig-Schule Mannheim, Germany.

Prof.Dr. Franz Egle, Vorstand DTI Mannheim

“We have been using Minticity for 2 years. As a German teacher, I am very happy to have access to such an interactive software which is great fun for my pupils. They review everything at home and learn German with great motivation and pleasure. Through this motivation, they independently research any topic that was not clear to them within Minticity and end up learning much more. As Büyük Kolej, we are very happy to have Minticity. We are having fun while learning German and we love Minticity.”

büyük kolej  Senay Yildiz, German Teacher – Büyük Kolej

“Thanks to Minticity, our pupils could review everything we learned in class in a fun way. We did not even need to remind them to do so. In addition, this online platform provided our teachers with attractive supplementary activities to use in the classroom. As the German Language Department of Cakabey Schools, we are very satisified with Minticity and we will continue using it next year.”

cakabey  Aylin Uckan, Head of German Language Dept. – Cakabey Schulen
