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

Bugs in the app

I have an account that I opened with my facebook account using my lappy. However, I cannot sign in from this mobile app, the app freezes every time I sign in using my facebook account.

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.

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.
