WhatsGerman: Easing Refugee Integration

WhatsGerman is a German-language course that operates through popular messaging platform WhatsApp. By texting a specific number, users receive daily courses in the fundamentals of German language. Lessons are complete with emojis, voice messages, and English-Arabic-German translations providing an emphasis on both vocabulary and pronunciation. Developed by a German company and backed by international actors such as Facebook and Caritas, this tool was created to help Syrian refugees better integrate into German society.
