VOX in general is very well organized and professional. The Zürich location is convenient near the main train station. My teacher Miriam is a wonderful instructor and I can see that she is planning the lessons around what I understand vs. what I need to work on more. She gives the lessons in 100% German and makes everything very clear, explaining in English only if I really don't understand something. I also appreciate that she asks me what I'd prefer to learn about, helps me with pronunciation, recommends videos to watch and books to read, and she has created special worksheets just for me. I could not imagine a better instructor.
Great teachers, flexible schedule, convenient location - I enjoyed my German B2 and C1 classes I had with VOX.
(Translated by Google) Very good team, which competently and manifoldly addresses the students and customers. (Original) Sehr gutes Team, das kompetent und vielfältig auf die Studenten und Kunden eingeht.
I had online german course b2 level . There were only 3 people in the class, so I had more chance to talk. My teacher Isabel was very professional and friendly. She gave us the homework after the class and send me the correction back very quickly which helped me a lot. It costs quite a lot, but as there are not many students in a class, so it was worth it. Unfortunately, there was no administrations office in winterthur branch, so it seems all enquries are done only with email or the telephone. But responsible person was in touch in a day time.
After a few courses at VOX, studying German, I can only recommend it for: 1) the quality / professionalism of the teaching (always prepared, hand-outs if necessary, follow-ups over email if a class is missed and topics / words / concepts promptly addressed the following lessons); 2) flexibility of the teaching and administration; 3) small class size (one of my main selection criteria) which allows for a good practice / feedback for all students; 4) convenient location close to HB (which was a big plus when you are trying to strike a balance with work and other chores). Both teachers I had so far (Coralie and Larissa) were extremely helpful, accurate and kind and helped me moved towards my goals.
I came to this school with 0 knowledge of German. I was very nervous at the beginning but the teachers at this school are so welcoming and really make you feel at ease. I especially find Christina's teaching approach really great and feel Ive learnt so much in her classes (both private and joint classes). I couldn't recommend this school enough!
(Translated by Google) I am being taught by Tatiana. I'm super satisfied and couldn't imagine a better lecturer. She explains it to me great, has a lot of patience and supports me. Thank you very much. (Original) Ich werde von Tatiana unterrichtet. Bin super zufrieden und könnte mir keine bessere Dozentin vorstellen. Sie erklärt es mir super, hat viel Geduld und fördert mich. Vielen Dank.
Ich lerne Deutsch! I am in the A1 class, which is being paid for by my employer. Thanks to VOX Sprachschule and especially to our teacher Stefan. I'm amazed by how much we have learned in just 6 weeks.
Very good language school.
Very good results and a great customer service. Will attend future courses.
(Translated by Google) I completed the English course at level B1 at the Vox language school in Winterthur. In one-to-one lessons, I worked with lecturers who have a very high level of expertise. Lessons are adapted to individual needs. The lecturers were able to respond to my needs very well. Due to my previous knowledge, I had no problems with the text and reading comprehension. Thus, during the lesson I was able to concentrate mainly on speaking. (Original) Ich absolvierte den Englischkurs auf dem Niveau B1 bei der Vox-Sprachschule in Winterthur. Im Einzelunterricht arbeitete ich mit Dozenten zusammen, welche eine sehr hohe Fachkompetenz aufweisen. Der Unterricht wird auf die individuellen Bedürfnisse angepasst. Die Dozenten konnten auf meine Bedürfnisse sehr gut eingehen. Durch meine Vorkenntnisse hatte ich keine Probleme mit dem Text- und Leseverständnis. Somit konnte ich mich während dem Unterricht hauptsächlich auf das Sprechen konzentrieren.
The course is going very well, Olga is a great teacher. I'm generally quite happy with the online option, although I prefer face to face. Olga adapts to my needs, corrects my errors spotting. She does her job well and I am making progress.
You will be taught only by carefully selected teachers with a university background in linguistics.
Focus on speaking
Speaking is at the core of our teaching method: It is only by speaking that you can learn to speak.
Max. 3-5 participants
Teaching quality matters to us, which is why we only form groups of 3 to 5 participants.
We avoid dividing the content of each level into several units. In other words, we always aim to complete one level in one course, i.e. you will not encounter course categories such as A1.1 or A1.2 at VOX-Sprachschule.
The schools are a couple of minutes away from the main train station of Zurich and Winterthur.
Free trial lesson
If you are not sure about joining a course, we can always arrange a trial lesson for you free of charge.
