The best way to build your vocabulary is by learning words in a relevant context. Our mini-stories in German provide just that: a relevant (and fun) context! Try it out for free!

Step by step to better German

  1. READ: Choose from different mini-stories. Every story has 5 chapters. It takes about 1 minute to read each chapter.
  2. GET DEFINITIONS: Click on any word in bold to get a definition in German that matches the meaning in that context.
  3. LEARN: Save words you don’t know in your personal learning list and practice them in a series of quiz-like exercises.

The best part is, you only focus on the vocabulary you don’t know, so the app never gets boring. Read and learn German wherever you are. All you need is your smartphone and our StoryPlanet app.

StoryPlanet is for …


StoryPlanet helps you improve your German with stories and an embedded dictionary – making it easier to read and helping you to build vocabulary in the process. Just tap an unfamiliar word to get the definition. You can then save those words to a personal learning list and practice them in little quizzes. Reading is a great way to build confidence in your German skills.


Imagine your learners are excited about reading in German. With StoryPlanet, reading is no longer a chore because learners can simply click on words to get definitions. They can also build up a personal vocabulary list and get interactive exercises. Have a look at our Teacher Area for tips on how StoryPlanet Deutsch can be used in the classroom.


StoryPlanet Deutsch can be licensed by companies to help staff improve their German in their free time. It’s fun, effective and affordable. We can also integrate your own content in the app and publish it with your logo. If you’re interested, get in touch so we can discuss the different options. Access our contact form here.
