Great experience. Followed the B1 German course during Corona time and I am impressed by the flexibility of the school and the teacher Priska. The general quality of the course is very good and very personal. Priska is a great teacher - and will definitely recommend her and Vox schule! Thanks! Pieter Laban
(Translated by Google) Dear Mrs. Poulkas, The class with Yana was pretty insightful. I talked a lot during the class and she really helped me correct my mistakes. Yana attended the course in a complicated situation, with lots of lessons ahead and little time to work, but she managed to tweak the content to clarify the most important and fundamental points. I need some time to practice everything I have learned and oriented so that I can continue to learn with the B2 course. With kind regards Rodrigo Aires (Original) Liebe Frau Poulkas, Der Kurs mit Yana war ziemlich aufschlussreich. Ich habe während des Kurses viel geredet und sie hat mir sehr geholfen, meine Fehler zu korrigieren. Yana nahm an dem Kurs in einer komplizierten Situation teil, mit vielen anstehenden Lektionen und wenig Zeit zum Arbeiten, aber sie schaffte es, den Inhalt zu optimieren, um die wichtigsten und grundlegenden Punkte zu klären. Ich brauche etwas Zeit, um alles Gelernte und Orientierte zu üben, damit ich mit dem B2-Kurs weiter lernen kann. Freundliche Grüsse Rodrigo Aires
I was learning English with the level A2-B1. I had good experiences with this school. My teacher was Tatiana. She is very professional and organized. Tatiana always sensed what exactly I need to improve my knowledge of the language. She is an excellent teacher. No question was left unanswered:) I'm really happy that I had such a good teacher. I attented other courses before and left without progress. This investion was worth it. This location is easily accessible from the HB Zürich.
Very good language school.
I feel that I am moving towards my goals, and that Priska is a great teacher. I get plenty of speaking practice, which is super. Priska makes sure that I Get the necessary grammatical exercises, and she is great at explaining the grammatical rules.
I came to this school with 0 knowledge of German. I was very nervous at the beginning but the teachers at this school are so welcoming and really make you feel at ease. I especially find Christina's teaching approach really great and feel Ive learnt so much in her classes (both private and joint classes). I couldn't recommend this school enough!
(Translated by Google) I really liked the course. Our teacher Leah has been very responsive to our goals and needs and has managed to bring them under one roof. I made the greatest progress in speaking. The many conversations during the lessons have enabled me to speak a lot more fluently and has expanded my active vocabulary. With Leah we often looked at the origin of the word, the exact meaning and the “area of use” of new vocabulary, which made it a lot easier for me to remember and understand them. Leah's attentive and personable way of teaching suited me very well. I would go back to class with her in a heartbeat. Nothing comes to my mind spontaneously that could have been done better, except maybe that we only received the books in the middle of the course, which firstly wasn't your fault and secondly didn't bother me at all. Leah managed it great :) (Original) Der Kurs hat mir richtig gut gefallen. Unsere Lehrerin Leah ist super auf unsere Ziele und Bedürfnisse eingegangen und hat es geschafft diese unter einen Hut zu bringen. Den grössten Fortschritt habe ich beim Sprechen gemacht. Die vielen Unterhaltungen während den Lektionen haben es mir ermöglicht nun einiges fliessender sprechen zu können und hat meinen aktiven Wortschatz erweitert. Wir haben mit Leah oft die Wortherkunft, die genaue Bedeutung und den „Verwendungsbereich“ von neuen Vokabeln angeschaut, was es mir enorm erleichtert hat mir diese zu merken und zu verstehen. Leahs aufmerksame und sympathische Art zu unterrichten hat sehr gut zu mir gepasst. Ich würde sofort wieder zu ihr in den Unterricht gehen. Gerade spontan kommt mir nichts in den Sinn, das man hätte besser machen können, ausser vielleicht dass wir die Bücher erst Mitte des Kurses erhalten haben, was erstens nicht euer Fehler war und zweitens gar nicht so gestört hat. Leah hat das super gemanagt :)
My experience with Tanja has been exceptional for the following reasons: - She always makes sure that we have actually understood the chapter. - She also goes a mile further and sends us exercises that helps us a lot, resulting with us improving. - She is very patient with every student and does not rush the class. - Her style of teaching is very refreshing and makes it easy for me to understand better. - If one is lacking somewhere, she will explain it again and again. As someone who lacks in this language, she is the perfect teacher that will correct you but will not make you feel you are less than anyone else.
VOX is not only a different school for people who want to learn a new language, but for teachers as well! Small groups, tailored courses and a focus on speaking provied a unique experience for everyone. I'm honoured to be part of the team!
Nathalie Nüssli is a wonderful teacher and we were very fortunate to have a great group. I learnt so much more than I would have on my own.
(Translated by Google) Very happy with the classes at VOX Sprachschule. Nice and professional teacher. Course in small groups. I recommend. (Original) Très content des cours effectués auprès de VOX Sprachschule. Professeure sympa et professionnelle. Cours en petits groupes. Je recommande.
Being a teacher at VOX is a very rich and joyful experience. The VOX method allows the students to get to meet a language from one of the most important sides of it – speaking. Back in the days, when I was learning English and French, a method such as the VOX-method would have helped me a lot and I would have loved to get to know it earlier. VOX provides a learning atmosphere that gives the students a chance to learn a language with a lot of motivation. One of the many advantages is also that the school is located right next to the main train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
