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

Sever connection

This is a excellent app for me to learn German. However, the network connection isn’t so good. Every time when I played mini games, it took more time on refreshing. Sometimes I play game with people, it told me “The avatar was deleted”, but when I clicked the same person again, their account were still there. Also I was logged out several times, it took me a lot of time on re log in. The sever connection seem to be a big issue. Please fix them.

Looks nice, but audio doesn’t work

I have a lot of high hopes for this app provided that the audio bug is worked out — I’m on an iPhone 6s+ running the latest iOS. The alp looks really nice, and since it’s from the Goethe Institute, I know the instruction will be good.

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!
