(Translated by Google) I had a private course in French to prepare for my bilingual studies. My teacher Alex was very friendly, competent and motivating! Due to the change of residence, the course time was unfortunately limited to 8 weeks - otherwise I would have liked to continue! (Original) Ich hatte einen Individualkurs in Französisch, um mich optimal für mein zweisprachiges Studium vorzubereiten. Mein Lehrer Alex war sehr freundlich, kompetent und motivierend! Durch den Wohnortwechsel war die Kurszeit leider auf 8 Wochen beschränkt - sonst hätte ich gerne weitergemacht!
(Translated by Google) Dear Mrs. Poulkas, The class with Yana was pretty insightful. I talked a lot during the class and she really helped me correct my mistakes. Yana attended the course in a complicated situation, with lots of lessons ahead and little time to work, but she managed to tweak the content to clarify the most important and fundamental points. I need some time to practice everything I have learned and oriented so that I can continue to learn with the B2 course. With kind regards Rodrigo Aires (Original) Liebe Frau Poulkas, Der Kurs mit Yana war ziemlich aufschlussreich. Ich habe während des Kurses viel geredet und sie hat mir sehr geholfen, meine Fehler zu korrigieren. Yana nahm an dem Kurs in einer komplizierten Situation teil, mit vielen anstehenden Lektionen und wenig Zeit zum Arbeiten, aber sie schaffte es, den Inhalt zu optimieren, um die wichtigsten und grundlegenden Punkte zu klären. Ich brauche etwas Zeit, um alles Gelernte und Orientierte zu üben, damit ich mit dem B2-Kurs weiter lernen kann. Freundliche Grüsse Rodrigo Aires
(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.
I went to VOX for A2-B2 German courses and I plan to continue taking another courses with this school. I did not like classes in Bellingua and Vox, unlike Bellingua, is very flexible and found a perfect option for me. I had a great teacher Nathalie, the groups were always small (2-3 people in my case). So there is enough attention for everyone. We spoke a lot at the class and did not spent time doing boring grammar exercises. What is very important is that the school has adapted very fast and well to the corona-reality. The distant learning is organized perfectly, as well as the classroom learning. I highly recommend Vox!
Great experience. Followed the B1 German course during Corona time and I am impressed by the flexibility of the school and the teacher Priska. The general quality of the course is very good and very personal. Priska is a great teacher - and will definitely recommend her and Vox schule! Thanks! Pieter Laban
(Translated by Google) I am very happy with VOX school. I had my lessons with Kristina. After teaching her, I received the Goethe-Zertifikat C1. I can recommend Kristina for everyone. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit VOX-Schule. Ich habe mein Unterricht mit Kristina gehabt. Nach dem Unterricht bei ihr erhielt ich das Goethe-Zertifikat C1. Ich kann Kristina für jeden empfehlen.
I think I achieved my goals by doing a course with Felicity. I learned something new about learning as well, which I can apply in every studying subject. That's why I can recommend this course to everyone who learns German. The studying materials and school facilities are also of highest quality. Thank you ones more for your team work!
I've worked for VOX for more than two years now. The best thing, among others, is probably a highly motivated team. Every single person here works hard and always tries to improve, including the back office, teachers and the owners of the school who work so hard themselves to offer high quality and well organized courses with personal care. Challenging and live working environment. Highly recommend!
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.
Good school with enthusiastic and well-prepared teachers. Working in small groups is efficient.
Review from my partner Kathleen Izzat I do feel that I am moving towards my goals with this language course and there is enough speaking practice. The lessons are interesting and Priska is very friendly and patient, often encouraging the students to find or to work out the correct answer by ourselves initially, then using help from co-students before stepping in to assist and advise. We are given plenty of relevant, everyday examples of the language in use and are supported well when we try to use German to describe our own experiences and thoughts. Looking back through the course book I can see that the new information being provided very cleverly flows throughout each chapter, as well as from chapter to chapter - it’s a well written course book. I would however, as a memory aid, prefer the book to be more colourful (for example, as in Hueber’s Schritte plus series) but that’s just my own preference. It’s not a problem though and it forces me to make my own notes, but that does take up a lot of home time on this intensive course. Overall though I am very pleased with this course
They are best in their profession... :) <3
