Most excellent place to learn German I have found. Good mix of teaching and speaking practice.
Being a teacher at VOX is a very rich and joyful experience. The VOX method allows the students to get to meet a language from one of the most important sides of it – speaking. Back in the days, when I was learning English and French, a method such as the VOX-method would have helped me a lot and I would have loved to get to know it earlier. VOX provides a learning atmosphere that gives the students a chance to learn a language with a lot of motivation. One of the many advantages is also that the school is located right next to the main train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
(Translated by Google) Very satisfied! Thank you! Gladly again (Original) Sehr zufrieden! Danke! Gerne wieder
I really appreciated to learn at Vox-Sprachschule. Learning in small groups is far more efficient and motivating compared to big groups where the levels of the students are too differents. The organisation was very flexible and fund great solutions to fit both mine and the school interests. They were very reactive against corona situation. I really recommend this school and my great teachers Cedric and Kristina.
(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) Top instruction, friendly colleagues, exciting tasks (Original) Top Unterrichtungen, sympatische Kollegen, spannende Aufgaben
(Translated by Google) When I started learning German in January of this year, I met a teacher who was initially not very happy with him. After a few hours with Maxi, I realized that he had a different way of teaching. He didn't follow the examples in the book, he wanted to explain it to us in a more practical way so that we could think about it. A very good teacher, but strict, it requires that we are always active. In other words, it's great for us students. I finished the B1 course with him. Thanks Max. "I think the online lessons are good, you should have them on offer. I would also like to take lessons from home in the future. I have seen many teachers and schools and Olga is perfect for me. Olga looks at what we do everyone separately needs and adapts to our individual wishes and that is unique. Olga is very hardworking and responds to our opinions. " (Original) Als ich im Januar dieses Jahres anfing, Deutsch zu lernen, traf ich einen Lehrer, der anfangs nicht sehr zufrieden mit ihm war. Nach ein paar Stunden mit Maxi wurde mir klar, dass er eine andere Art zu unterrichten hatte. Er hielt sich nicht an die Beispiele im Buch, er wollte es uns praktischer erklären, damit wir darüber nachdenken. Ein sehr guter Lehrer, aber streng, es erfordert, dass wir immer aktiv sind. Mit anderen Worten, es ist großartig für uns Schüler. Ich habe den B1-Kurs mit ihm beendet. Danke Max. "Den Online- Unterricht finde ich gut, ihr solltet das im festen Angebot haben. Ich würde den Unterricht in Zukunft auch von zu Hause aus machen wollen. Ich habe viele Lehrer und Schulen gesehen und Olga ist perfekt für mich. Olga schaut, was wir alle separat brauchen und passt sich unseren individuellen Wünschen an und das ist einzigartig. Olga ist sehr fleissig und geht auf unsere Meinungen ein."
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!
Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole 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.
Small groups, good progress, relaxed atmosphere
VOX is not the cheapest language school in Zurich, but the quality makes it worth the price. The teachers are well-qualified and kind, and the small class size and mindful composition is much appreciated. Their administration has also been swiftly responsive to any scheduling or other issues raised.
University class teachers
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
To ensure top quality teaching, group size is limited to 3-5 participants.
We always aim to complete one level in one course. You will not encounter such course types 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.
You are always welcome to book a trial lesson before embarking on your language journey with us!
