German teaching material

Based on numerous experiences acquired while working successfully in German teaching for many years (pupils and adults of all levels and domains, private and professional) Minetosh online is offering multi-media files for learning german. These include grammar exercises and tests, texts and audio-files for simultaneous listening and reading and video- and audio-files dealing with certain topics of german grammar.
For example the “Wechselpräpositionen”. Do have an idea of what this is? Well, “Wechselpräpositionen” are prepositions that change their case with the context in which they are used. Here you can find out, what “Wechselpräpositionen” are and how to use them correctly. So have a look to refresh your German or to learn something new.


Additionally, there's a series of videos (screen-casts) with important german phrases and sentences. With these you may practice some important phrases which might come in handy during a stay inGermany. This may help you to ask for a room in a german “Gasthaus”. Or, when you're sitting in beer-garden and you'd like to order a “Bier” and a “Bratwurst” or some “Apfelwein” and “Handkäse mit Musik”. But there are also sentences dealing with a lot of other situations: asking for one's way, in a garage, at the doctor, etc ...
There is a total of 20 volumes with over 400 phrases available.


You may also download all of these items for free. There are interactive files for LibreOffice / OpenOffice or MS Excel allowing to do the exercises without an Internet connection. The solutions are always included. You may even download the audio tracks of the videos as mp3-files, including the accompanying text files (pdf). And as it has been stated above: all this for free! Just one request: Please do respect the respective licenses (Creative Commons)!



Besides its offers concerning the german language, Minetosh online also offers some web-apps for free:

Furthermore, Minetosh online offers some older Mac software for downloading. However, this section is in “deep sleep mode” until further notice.

Here you'll find the apps EcoHouse, ImpTric and Winkel X.
Winkel X is a tool to convert units of angle and to calculate geological parameters using trigonometrical functions. The conversion of units of angle is also included in the web app ToolBox. It is planned to publish a web app for the calculation of geological parameters as well.

A new version of the program EcoHouse is available as an online application too (see above). This app can be used directly on the web without downloading it.
