(Translated by Google) I am very happy with my teacher Agnieszka. After each lesson, I notice that I am learning a lot because she does it very well. So my feeling is that the school works with very successful, professional teachers. I recommend the VOX school to anyone who wants to learn a foreign language. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meiner Lehrerin Agnieszka. Nach jedem Unterricht merke ich, dass ich viel lerne weil sie das ganze einfach sehr gut macht. Deshalb ist mein Gefühl, dass die Schule mit sehr erfolgreichen, professionellen Lehrern arbeitet. Ich empfehle die Schule VOX jeden, der eine Fremdsprache lernen möchte.
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.
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
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!
(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 did B2 German course and I absolutely recommend it. The course with Agnieszka has been amazing! Aga's teaching style is fantastic and she always manages to make learning pleasant and fun. I definitely improved my grammar skills which was what I was hoping for. One of my favorite parts is that Aga always uses examples from real life so I could implement what I had learned in the very same evening during conversations with my friends and family. That boosts motivation a lot. Plus the more 'dramatic' expressions (such as: dieser Zug ist abgefahren, hier hört der Spass auf) make it easier to remember and are fun to use afterwards. We were often asked what we would like to do more so I can't say anything was missing. I really wouldn't know how to improve the course, it was already above my expectations :)
(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.
A really great school and the team. The teaching method works!
(Translated by Google) Attended private lessons at Tatiana for the preparation of the CAE test and passed it successfully (C2 level). Tatiana has given good inputs where more practice is needed, so that an efficient improvement could be determined if her tips were followed consistently. We recommend. Thanks a lot! (Original) Privatlektionen bei Tatiana für die Vorbereitung des CAE-Tests besucht und erfolgreich bestanden (C2-Level). Tatiana hat gute Inputs gegeben, wo noch vermehrt Übung nötig ist, so dass eine effiziente Verbesserung bei konsequenter Befolgung ihrer Tipps feststellbar war. Sehr zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank!
It is a nice language school. Teachers are professional and care students and their needs. The program is well planned as a student’s level. One of my friends strongly recommended me here and I will do as well. I am improving a lot here.
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.
(Translated by Google) I am super happy with Tatiana's lessons and cannot give her enough laurels. She is really very knowledgeable and can always answer my, sometimes strange questions as a linguist, wonderfully. Her knowledge of phonetics is also super helpful. I have the feeling that I am making good progress and I also feel very comfortable. A + for Tatiana! (Original) Ich bin super happy mit Tatianas Unterricht und kann gar nicht genug Lorbeeren an sie verteilen. Sie ist wirklich sehr sachkundig und kann meine, wohl manchmal etwas seltsamen Fragen als Linguistin, immer auch wunderbar beantworten. Ihre Phonetik-Kenntnisse sind auch super hilfreich. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich gute Fortschritte mache und fühle mich auch sehr wohl. A+ für Tatiana!
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.
