(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.
Really excellent teaching method and class size makea this a great school. Teachers of top quality. Supplies for students such bottled mineral water is free. Great managers and staff which are very helpful with issues. Highly recommended.
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.
They are best in their profession!!!
(Translated by Google) I enjoyed the German courses B1 and B2, I am completely satisfied! We had a small group and talked a lot during the class, that was great! The teachers are professional and nice. Thank you so much! (Original) Die Deutschkurse B1 und B2 sind mir gefallen, ich bin völlig zufrieden! Wir hatten eine kleine Gruppe und sprachen viel Zeit während des Unterrichts, das war super! Die Lehrerinnen sind professionell und nett. Vielen Dank!
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.
After living about 10 years in Switzerland and having tried many different language schools, i have finally found a place to hone my German and Swiss German skills. Quite logical teaching method appeals to human brain memorization mechanisms, making language learning so natural, as it used to be with oneself's mother tongue in childhood time. The method is based upon academical linguistic education, as well as personal experience (bilingualism) of the school founder. Many thanks and greetings to Igor!
Excellent VOX to learn German and especially with the teacher Nathalie N. ! Clean and tidy rooms, professional and pedagogical teacher, small groups and very nice people ! Thank you very much VOX !
I am extremely satisfied with Laura’s lessons. I loved her method and I improved a lot. The course was perfect with her, she is a great teacher and I am truly thankful to her for what I have learned. I would definitely recommend VOX Schule to other people. Small classes for qualitative results.
Great location and very professional and motivated teachers. Have been going there for a year now and can totally recommend it!
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

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.
