How to make German lessons more interesting for students? How to motivate them to work more independently, to be creative and to think critically? What else is interesting for them when they use smartphones, social networks, etc. on a daily basis? The widespread use of ICT has not only changed the daily activities and lifestyles of individuals but has also had a profound impact on education at all levels. The joint foreign languages session of secondary school students and ninth graders had to be prepared in a way that was close to them. The COVID -19 pandemic and its associated quarantine have left many of us feeling trapped in a constant state of escape. Therefore, a virtual escape room entitled "Who Stole the Goldfish?" seemed appropriate for this workshop. Using their mobile phones, students entered a virtual world where they could communicate and collaborate without boundaries. The online escape room offered a series of clues, challenges, puzzles, and visual elements that led them to the solution - the discovery of the culprit. The goals of the session were to promote problem solving and team building, develop group problem solving and listening skills, and build better communication skills for collaboration.
