The integration of refugees is still much discussed and the learning of the German language is an important aspect. The StartUp Jiki offers learning units for learning the new language as naturally as possible - and which is also suitable for the illiterate. The whole thing was financed by crowdfunding. A founder report.

Helge Straube is the founder of Jickilearning together with Christian Maier.


Natural learning of the German language

My name is Helge Straube and I would like to tell you the story of why we organize a German language day at 13.12.2017.

In 2016 I founded “Jicki - finally learn”. The idea behind it is language showers, with which a new language can be learned particularly easily and in a relaxed atmosphere. I tried a lot to get as close as possible to learning that is based on child learning. So learning that is combined with joy and curiosity.

Ideal learning for refugees

When I put our learning platform online, after a short time, the requests came to our then two-headed team, if we can not develop our speech showers for people with flight experience.

I did not have to think long and I complied with this request. Without further ado, we have five lessons German for Arabic speakers developed and provided free of charge. The response was just wonderful: after a short time this course was downloaded by many refugees and was very well received.

Funding via crowdfunding

At the beginning of 2017, the Jicki team grew up on 5 people and as expected, the question of more lessons came relatively quickly. Again, we did not have to think long and have made immediately to the conception.

But there was a problem: As a young one Company We had to ask ourselves how we finance the course. Because it was important to us that the course continues to be free! That's why we launched a crowdfunding campaign in early summer 2017. With success!

The topic raised so many private individuals that we were able to collect a total of 7.500 €. The joy was great and we started immediately with the implementation. The script on which theCourses are based has been expanded, then we went to the recording studio with our great speakers and recorded the lessons. The whole thing was then mixed and on the 13.12.2017 we can finally publish the course.

How are the lessons structured?

In terms of content, this practice-oriented beginner's course is based on common everyday situations and lifelike vocabulary. It is designed to be usable by Arabic-speaking people, regardless of their age or education level. Knowledge of the German or Arabic written language is not required because the languageCourses are based on auditory learning.

The course consists of 12 lessons of about 20 minutes each and can be listened to anywhere as an app or from the website. This not only enables casual learning on the way or on the road, you can also undisturbed repeat the course until the fabric sits. Speech pauses also invite you to speak and practice pronunciation.

To convey a feeling for the situation of refugees

In this way, waiting times can be ideally and meaningfully bridged and valuable lessons with teachers used for more important things than learning vocabulary. In this combination, it is possible after a short learning time to speak and connect with German speakers.

In order to give Germans a sense of how “foreign” the German language feels to the refugees, we also have a test shower ”Arabic for Germans”Which can also be listened to free of charge. According to our motto: “Make the foreign language into a friend's language”!

German Language Day: Let's talk to each other

"Let's start a conversation" - this is the motto of the Deutschlerntag, The aim of the Day of Action is to draw public attention to the importance of language training for refugees, thus eliminating language barriers.

Everyone can and should participate in order to place integration even more in the public eye. We are glad, if you also participate in the German day and make the day even more colorful.
