With “Learn German – The City of Words” the Goethe-Institut is issuing an online game for German learners at Level A1. This free game combines elements from hidden-object puzzles with both co-operative and competitive multi-player games where everyone learning German at beginners’ level can expand their vocabulary skills and compare themselves with others. Playfully presented language exercises transfer basic grammar structures of the German language. The playful approach of “Lern Deutsch – Die Stadt der Wörter” shows that learning German is not difficult at all. And it’s fun!
Update: Now with new “Unicampus” level

helps me learn a lot but question..


I really really enjoy this app! I haven't been able to put it down since I got it this afternoon!Its absolutely perfect for beginners! I find it way more engaging than Duolingo and its free!! Its really helping me learn words and their gender so fast and easy...Super smart way to do things!

But I have a question, I would really like to participate in minigames but I do not understand how.
WhenI click that I want to challenge someone a message pops up saying that s message will be sent to me once they have completed their turn...But where do I receive the message and when can I have a go at the minigame and do I get to choose a topic?
There doesn'tseem to be much info about this.
I would love some help!

How do you turn off challenges?


I just got the game, and I am not ready to play challenges yet. I like everything about the game so far, except that when I decline a challenge the person will try again and again. I just want to turn it off for now. I would like to turn it back on when I feel ready for that.

Really Well Done

I was very impressed by the quality and attention to detail put into this game.
I do think there should be more variety in practicing words you already learned.
the game looks a tiny bit pixely on my iPad. I'm sure it looks great on a phone.
