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
Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole time.
(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!
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.
(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.
(Translated by Google) The organization regarding course determination as well as communication and administration was flawless.

Der Französischkurs mit Olga hat mir viel Spass gemacht, sie ist immer sehr gut auf mich eingegangen, wodurch ich meine persönlichen Lernziele erreicht habe.
(Translated by Google) A modern, "crisp", dynamic, flexible and very likable school, where teaching and working with the behind-the-scenes teams is great fun! A great job that I can definitely recommend. (Original) Eine moderne, "knackige", dynamische, flexible und sehr sympathische Schule, an der das Unterrichten und die Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams hinter den Kulissen enormen Spass macht! Ein toller Arbeitsplatz, den ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen kann.
(Translated by Google) I took private lessons in German at VOX Sprachschule and was able to achieve very good results in a short time. My teacher Saskia was very friendly, competent and uncomplicated. She put together an individual program for me, which addressed my weaknesses and we mainly concentrated on speaking. The location of the school is very central and the rooms have high ceilings with lots of light. So I found the atmosphere very pleasant. In summary, I can highly recommend the school if you want to get results quickly. (Original) Ich habe Privatunterricht in Deutsch bei VOX Sprachschule genommen und konnte in einer kurzen Zeit sehr gute Ergebnisse erzielen. Meine Lehrerin Saskia war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert. Sie hat für mich ein individuelles Programm zusammengestellt, welches auf meine Schwächen eingegangen ist und wir haben uns vor allem auf das Sprechen konzentriert. Die Lage der Schule ist sehr zentral und die Räume haben hohe Decken mit viel Licht. Ich fand die Atmosphäre daher sehr angenehm. Zusammenfassend kann ich die Schule sehr empfehlen, wenn man schnell Ergebnisse erzielen möchte.
Probably, the best language school in Zurich. I'm happy to share, that I passed my CAE with a C1 level! With Tatiana we have improved my English knowledge from B1 to C1 in 9 months. Great teacher and a great place. Highly recommend!
(Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the English course with Cedric. The course location was ideal, the course book I found very interesting and helpful. Thanks also for the good discussions and for the flexibility. A great school! (Original) Der Englischkurs mit Cedric hat mir sehr gefallen. Der Kursort war ideal, das Kursbuch fand ich sehr interessant und hilfreich. Danke auch für die guten Gespräche und für die Flexibilität. Eine tolle Schule!
I really like the school. It is organized, my teacher is really good (almost no English during the German class) and there are maximum 5 studens per class, which is important for the learning process.
I am currently doing a B2 German course with 3 other students online. All the other courses I have done in other schools have been in much larger groups. I feel that the course is more tailored to us as individuals and I’m learning more as a result. Agi is an excellent teacher! She explains everything clearly, allows us to practise and corrects our mistakes without destroying confidence. This has been perfect for me as a refresher course but you would have to be motivated to do extra homework if everything were new as the speed is quite fast. I am finally getting to grips with cases and am slowly learning to speak with fewer grammatical errors. I would highly recommend Vox to those who want to learn quickly and want to improve their speaking ability.
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.
