“The increase of digitisation in our society has never happened so quickly. We appreciate that learning online can be a lot harder and requires a lot more support, and would like to make it easier for children to use online platforms. In addition to this, we want to simplify the process and decrease the stress associated with online learning for parents”.
MintiCity by DAS Akademie
DAS Akademie, Deutsche Akademie für Sprachen, started teaching German as a foreign language to kids and teens 23 years ago. Since then, we have helped 60,000 students of all ages and nationalities interactively and creatively learn German. Along the way, we have created new tools and techniques for experiential language education. After analysing the expectations of German learners, the DAS Team developed a completely new digital tool to meet their personal needs and goals. And so, for the past 13 years, we have been developing MintiCity German for schools as a blended learning solution. Built on the premise of gamification, MintiCity’s multi-media content is entirely tailored to the needs of young learners. Our close cooperation with K-12 teachers has led us to develop our own comprehensive learning management features for the platform. MintiCity is more than just a digital tool to learn German online; it is a vibrant world in which learners can plunge deeply and have fun while learning in an immersive and supportive environment. Our goal? Make digital learning a possibility for any child in the world.
Why schools and parents choose MintiCity
The advantages of learning through this new and unique platform are endless. Firstly, as a parent, all you need to know is how to log onto MintiCity and start the website for your child, and how to track their progress. Our simple and efficient teaching methods make it easy for your child to learn independently. In addition to this, our lessons are designed like this so that your child will use more than one of their senses when learning. Your child will be encouraged to listen, speak, watch and move around, all whilst learning the essentials of the German language. Finally, the vocabulary which your child learns in each lesson is not only repeated in entertaining activities in that lessons, but it is also incorporated into songs and games in the lessons which follow. This means that your child has the best possible chances of retaining all the information.
Digital Revolution in Teaching German
The pace of technological innovation is nearly exponential. Everyone speaks of a digital revolution and the use of new technology in schools. Classes are to be innovative and student-centered. Digital learning is, and will increasingly become, an integral part of education as we know it. Now more than ever, in a time where online learning is essential, MintiCity offers the integrated, interactive, and creative solution for learning German as a foreign language. Better yet, we are consistently working on the platform to ensure that it develops as fast as the rest of the digital world.
