I started learning german 1:1 with Kristina before COVID hit and everything was forced to close, I've been really impressed how quickly Vox set everything up for me to be able to continue my studies remotely via Zoom. I'm able to use my time productively and continue learning German. Thanks for everything! Darragh
I am currently learning Norwegian and I have to say this school is the best. My teacher, Kirsten, has a lot of patience and she explains everything good and clear. I am satisfied with the course ( couldn’t be better organised - full flexibility ). I would definitely recommend it.
The school's own method used by all of its teachers focuses on pronunciation as well as on the vocabulary and grammar needed to be able to communicate within days of starting a course. This is further emphasized by the small size of the groups and the possibility of attending individual lessons, both of which allow the students' needs to be met. Working here is one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far. If you want or need to learn a language, this really is the place to go.
(Translated by Google) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Friendly, purposeful, reliable, serious but not too much, a creative force and with great pleasure at work. I probably booked private lessons with an optimal teacher. (Original) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Amichevole, finalizzata, affidabile, seria ma non troppo, una forza creativa e con molto piacere sul lavoro. Probabilmente ho prenotato lezioni private con una insegnante ottimale.
I've been working as an English teacher at VOX since January 2020 and have had an extremely positive experience. The communication between teachers and the administrative team has been quick and easy and the teaching method we use is very successful. It's a pleasure to work with hard-working, motivated students and teachers alike. I'm lucky to work as part of such a great team.
(Translated by Google) As a teacher, teaching at VOX gives me incredible pleasure. Not only the organization is great, but also the groups that I was able to teach were very dynamic, motivated and entertaining. On the whole an excellent learning atmosphere. (Original) Als Lehrerin bereitet mir das Unterrichten bei VOX unglaubliche Freude. Nicht nur die Organisation ist top, sondern auch die Gruppen, welche ich unterrichten durfte, waren sehr dynamisch, motiviert und unterhaltsam. Im Grossen und Ganzen eine ausgezeichnete Lernatmosphäre.
(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'm really happy with VOX and Larissa, the lessons are engaging and fun, a lot of speaking practice and grammar. But the most important thing is they care about your experience. Definitely recommending.
The schools is very accommodating of my schedule and preferences. Overall it has been a great experience. I am very happy with my classes with Natalie. She strikes the right balance between grammar and speaking practice. She takes my feedback into consideration and I very much enjoy the learning experience. She is an excellent teacher, patient, knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. She makes learning fun and is definitely one of my all-time favorite teachers! I always look forward to my German classes.
Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole time.
Tatjana is a very good teacher. I'm moving forward with every lesson I've taken. There are tangible results shown are the end of every lesson.
I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
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.
