Very good results and a great customer service. Will attend future courses.
(Translated by Google) For two years now, we have been attending an English language course every two weeks for a couple of years. For some time now with a very competent and sympathetic instructor. We are sure to enjoy a special course with her. Our aim is not to reach a high level within a very short time, but we always want to take a small step further and keep the English "warm". Even previous teachers were very competent and we have always had great fun, which in our eyes is also an essential factor. We can highly recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Wir besuchen zu zweit seit ein paar Jahren alle zwei Wochen einen Englischsprachkurs. Seit geraumer Zeit jetzt bei einer äusserst kompetenten und sympathischen Kursleiterin. Wir geniessen sicher einen etwas speziellen Kurs mit ihr. Unser Ziel ist es nicht, innert kürzester Zeit einen hohen Level zu erreichen, sondern wir möchten immer einen kleinen Schritt weiter kommen und das Englisch "warm" halten. Auch vorherige Kursleiter waren sehr kompetent und es hat uns immer grossen Spass gemacht, was in unseren Augen auch ein wesentlicher Faktor ist. Wir können die VOX-Sprachschule wärmstens empfehlen.
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.
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
As a teacher working for VOX, I could not be happier about my experience here. Teaching to single students or small groups (max five people) allows me to adapt the lessons to their goals, maximize their progress, follow them up thoroughly and establish trustworthy, effective relationships. The focus is on speaking skills, which I consider crucial to prepare the students for contexts of real communication. The team is varied, multilingual, highly motivated and supportive: the students will always find someone that can fit with their timetable and requirements. Finally, the school has a clear ambition to grow, to develop and to provide an ever-improving service. From my point of view, highly recommended for both teachers and students.
(Translated by Google) You learn a lot in a short amount of time and quickly achieve success. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to speak a new language. (Original) Man lernt enorm viel in nur kurzer Zeit und erzielt schnell Erfolge. Ich empfehle diese Schule gerne jedem weiter, der eine neue Sprache beherrschen möchte.
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.
Locations is perfect! Teachers are very professional and just cool ;) Recommend this school in any aspect!
(Translated by Google) A unique school where teaching is fun! I particularly appreciate the focus on speaking and small classes. This is where every student gets his word. I'm happy to be part of the Vox team. (Original) Eine einzigartige Schule, an der das Unterrichten Spass macht! Ganz besonders schätze ich den Fokus auf das Sprechen und die kleinen Klassen. Hier kommt wirklich jeder Schüler zu Wort. Ich freue mich, dass ich Teil des Vox-Teams sein darf.
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.
(Translated by Google) Within a very short time I learned the basics of the Spanish language at the VOX and had a lot of fun! My teacher has adapted the approach and content to my needs, which makes it easier to get started in a new language and keeps your interest and motivation high. The school also scores with a very central location and high flexibility in the organization of appointments - overall I am very satisfied :) (Original) Innerhalb von sehr kurzer Zeit lernte ich an der VOX die Grundzüge der spanischen Sprache und hatte dabei eine ganze Menge Spass! Meine Lehrerin hat die Vorgehensweise und Inhalte stark auf meine Bedürfnisse angepasst, was den Einstieg in eine neue Sprache einerseits erleichtert und das Interesse & Motivation hoch hält. Die Schule punktet zudem mit einem sehr zentralen Standort und hoher Flexibilität bei der Organisation der Termine - insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden :)
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.
