“MindSnacks’ German app has helped me so much! I just recently went on a trip to Germany and I felt like I had lived there all my life!”

“German always sounded like a hard language to learn but thanks to this app I’m enjoying it and loving it. Sooo worth it!”


At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our German app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game teaches a specific aspect of the language, creating a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes far beyond basic vocabulary flashcards.

Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating German words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn German, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners, MindSnacks is like your own personal German teacher you can take just about anywhere . You’ll quickly spend less time looking at that German dictionary and more time planning that trip to Berlin.
