(Translated by Google) I attended a test preparation course with VOX at Tatiana. The course was super structured and well organized. I was able to learn a lot in a short time. The teacher recognized my strengths and weaknesses immediately and adapted the course content to them. I would say it's one of the best courses I've ever attended and I definitely recommend it to anyone. (Original) Ich habe bei VOX einen Prüfungsvorbereitungs-Kurs bei Tatiana besucht. Der Kurs war super strukturiert und gut organisiert. Ich konnte in kurzer Zeit sehr viel lernen. Die Lehrerin erkannte meine Stärken und Schwächen sofort und passte die Kursinhalte auch an diese an. Ich würde sagen, es ist einer der besten Kurse, den ich bisher besucht habe und ich kann die Schule auf jeden Fall jedem empfehlen.
I am currently taking German A1 with VOX-Sprachschule and have been very happy with their concept. The small group size and the skillful teacher have made it easy to reach the goals set, and I signed up for the next level without hesitation. Importantly, I travel a lot in my work and have therefore had to miss out on a number of classes, but this has never been an issue. The teacher has kindly provided me with homework for the lessons missed, so that I have had no problems keeping up with the other students. Also from the admin side everything has been very streamlined. All in all, I warmly recommend this language school.
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.
(Translated by Google) Good school with a teacher (Marcella) who is very professional. (Original) Bonne école avec un professeur (Marcella) qui est très professionnel.
(Translated by Google) The space and the location are excellent. My teacher Tatiana is very good! She makes the lessons very varied and full of passion. She recognized my strengths and weaknesses immediately and adapted the course content to them. She is the best teacher I have ever had. Thank you, for the great lessons. I'm really looking forward to the next lesson. (Original) Die Räumlichkeit und der Standort sind hervorragend. Meine Lehrerin Tatiana ist sehr gut! Sie gestaltet den Unterricht sehr abwechslungsreich und mit voller Leidenschaft. Sie erkannte meine Stärken und Schwächen sofort und passte den Kursinhalt auch an diese an. Sie ist die beste Lehrerin, die ich jemals hatte. Vielen Dank, für den tollen Unterricht. Ich freue mich schon sehr, auf den nächsten Unterricht.
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
(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!
Great teacher and very helpful staff
(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!
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 did a German B2 superintensive course. Both my teachers were great. Remarkable skills of delivering the information, knowledgeable of the language , interested to make me learn. Very well organized school. Very strongly recommended.
(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.
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.
