What is it about?

Migrants from Turkey turn "economically literate". Simulation & gaming and praxis-oriented methods confront these migrants with issues like "economy", "globalisation", "household", "poverty", "wealth", "work", and teach them how to productively integrate this knowledge into the concrete reality of their daily lives. Linguistic and social factors that originally made access to economic and financial matters difficult are here compensated. Tested tools for learning economic basics are then integrated into ongoing German lessons for women.
