Immerse learners in the German language.

Immersion is the most successful approach to teaching or learning a new language. MintiCity immerses its users into a virtual world where they hear, read, write and get to think in the German language. All senses are activated and engaged through pictures, photos, videos, music and audios for lasting results.

Spiel und Spass


Motivate young learners through play.

Entertainment, competition and gratification instead of cramming grammar. MintiCity transforms your lessons into a talk-show, a journey back in time or an adventure in a new city. Young German learners act independently, master challenges and reach milestones – 3 success factors for the motivation. Teachers can create their own games through the game management function.



Implement personalised learning effectively.

MintiCity modules enables teachers to assign personalised teaching content and exercises to German learners. The pupils perform tasks at their own speed and in line with their own learning needs. Thus, teachers can address the personal strengths and weaknesses of each pupil in the classroom and facilitate progress.

Manage the performance of your pupils with the option to focus on individual needs and to ensure the development of the whole class. MintiCity is an all-rounder for German teachers.

e-learning Deutsch


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 digitized lessons, most lack the necessary software as well as the teacher training. We created MintiCity out of the desire to offer blended learning in German as a Foreign Language. MintiCity demonstrates how learning German in today’s world can work in schools and support educators from the very first step.

Interactive German Lessons

In MintiCity, kids & teens learn German  at their own pace and receive immediate feedback. Whether at home or at school, they can interact with the other residents of MintiCity. Learning interactively is not only limited to learning German online: All MintiCity users can attend the German Olympic Games, Mint-O-Lympics, and win a real trip to Berlin.




Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

Recognised internationally. Learn German online in line with the CEFR and effectively train all four skills from A1 to C1: listening, reading, writing and speaking. Therefore, Minticity can be easily integrated into your school curriculum for German as a foreign language. In addition, teachers can prepare their pupils for the Zertifikat Deutsch (ZD) or Telc Junior exams.



Access Anytime and Anywhere

With Minticity, you do not need to download or install a software or an app for learning German. You can simply log into MintiCity and use it on a computer (PC / Mac), tablet (iOS / Android) or a mobile device. German teachers can view the assignment results of an entire class on the go and conveniently send new tasks on their mobile devices.

Spielend Lernen

Learn Through Play

Learn while playing or play while learning! Cramming vocabulary and grammar can be extremely boring when learning German. What if you could draw, solve puzzles, play games, find the correct answers and win rewards? Wouldn’t it be fun to learn German grammar online with animations and explanatory videos voiced by native speakers?

visuell lernen

Multi-Channel Learning

The more senses are involved, the better the knowledge is absorbed. See, read, listen and do it yourself: Click, mark, drag, drop, sort, write, hear the pronunciation and see the correct answers immediately. Do you teach German as a foreign language outside of Germany? MintiCity brings native German speakers to your classes and to the homes of your pupils.

Collaboration with German Teachers

German teachers have been using MintiCity in their classes for 10 years. During the annual Minti-Summits, the MintiCity team exchanges views with German teachers from different countries in order to improve the online learning tools and the learning management system. Every year, we implement school specific requirements, introduce new functions, and develop new feedback mechanisms.

Compatible with Smartboards

MintiCity can be used on a computer, tablet or cell phone. As an online platform to learn German, Minticity is constantly improving daily with new content and features. In schools without computer labs, the online learning tool can be projected onto a wall, smartboard or whiteboard. In this way, German teachers can show videos or facilitate group games like “Who wants to be a millionaire?”



Unique Method

Kids & teens learn languages ​​differently. First they listen, they play and gain experience, then they seek social interaction with their peers. MintiCity follows these principles and tackles topics that move kids & teens: friendship, music, sports, video games, social media, school and the future. In order to enable young German learners to live the foreign language German, MintiCity has created a world that inspires kids & teens.

TAKEV, Turkish-German Culture and Education Association, has been using Minticity in its schools for 4 years now. The interschool competitions organised by Minticity ignite great enthusiasm in our pupils. It has always been a great source of happiness to me to see the excitement in their eyes when I give them presents delivered by Minticity in our awards ceremonies.

  Berrin Güller, Coordinator – TAKEV

“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.”

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.”
