What we do
Kanzi is a Berlin-based social startup connecting language learning with rap music. We develop off- and online workshop-based solutions for German language learners across the world. Each of our self-produced rap songs is specifically tailored to suit our students’ linguistic as well as cultural learning needs. Our innovative pedagogical techniques are intrinsically playful and motivating, allowing us to meet learners in their own life world.
