In the A2 course at VOX you will not only learn the basics of the language, but also work on your goal to start speaking actively and independently as soon as possible according to your personal life situation. To achieve this, the grammar required for speaking will be explained to you using the VOX method, so that you can use it immediately in your everyday life and use it also as a foundation for further learning. These include the following topics: verb conjugations, order of the sentence, tenses, declensions of nouns, declensions of adjectives and prepositions.

Our Goethe-Zertifikat A2 preparation courses are perfect for those who already have a basic command of German (completed A1) and want to build on their knowledge in order to sit the Goethe A2 exam, for example Non-EU nationals who need to show that their German skills are A2 level to obtain a Swiss C-permit. The Goethe-Zertifikat A2 is officially accepted for this purpose. In order to pass the exam, it is vital to not only have the required language skills, but also to be familiar with the exam itself. This exam preparation course will cover all parts of the exam: reading, listening, writing and speaking.
At VOX, we believe in the importance of speaking since language is first and foremost a tool of oral communication. In small groups (3-5 students), your teacher will help you improve your German skills to the appropriate level and will encourage you to speak with confidence. In addition to improving your German, your experienced teacher will guide you through all sections of the exam and give you tips so you will be fully prepared. Our small groups ensure you receive enough attention and teachers are able to directly respond to your individual needs. Thorough preparation will reduce any exam-induced anxiety and build confidence.

(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.
Vox Language School has an amazing philosophy when it comes to teaching and language learning. The students are in the centre of attention and their needs and wants are focused on with empathy and interest. The whole team is warm and welcoming and as a teacher I especially appreciate the recognition from my students and boss. I can definitely recommend this school to anyone - students and teachers!
(Translated by Google) Last autumn I took private lessons in French for several weeks and was very satisfied with the support and preparation of the language teacher. We made the course very dynamic and focused on speaking. On the one hand, he recognized individual weaknesses and placed the learning focus on them, and on the other hand, he was always able to answer spontaneous questions about the French language confidently and well. I can definitely recommend the language school without reservation! (Original) Im letzten Herbst habe ich über mehrere Wochen Privatstunden in Französisch besucht und war mit der Betreuung und Vorbereitungs des Sprachlehrers sehr zufrieden. Wir haben den Kurs sehr dynamisch ausgestaltet und den Fokus aufs Sprechen gelegt. Dabei hat er einerseits individuelle Schwächen erkannt und darauf den Lernfokus gelegt und andererseits konnte er immer wieder auftauchende Spontanfragen zur französischen Sprache stets souverän und gut beantworten. Kann die Sprachschule auf jeden Fall uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!
I was taking a C2 English course at the VOX language school to prepare for a Toefl exam. The school is located in the heart of the city right on Central square. After my request for a C2 level course, I was quickly given a recommendation about who would be the best teacher for me. I was being introduced to Tatiana who is a great teacher and she helped me out in any way I needed her. I didn’t have much time for my exam preparation, but Tatiana made sure we covered everything for the exam just in time. All in all, I would highly recommend studying at VOX language school and would definitely join again if I wanted to improve or learn another language!
I had a very good experience with Aida who helped me to find the right course for me, and Silvan as a fantastic teacher for private Swiss German classes on zoom! Very friendly and professional.
I was surprised myself how fast I made progress with my language skills. Very professional teachers teach at VOX, who know their field very well.
I really appreciated to learn at Vox-Sprachschule. Learning in small groups is far more efficient and motivating compared to big groups where the levels of the students are too differents. The organisation was very flexible and fund great solutions to fit both mine and the school interests. They were very reactive against corona situation. I really recommend this school and my great teachers Cedric and Kristina.
Very personal service, good organization and high quality of the lessons, even if they were taught online. We covered a whole level within one course and I noticed the difference right away in real life conversations!!! Within a few weeks I was able to refresh all the knowledge I already had and actively build on this, which is exactly what my goal was! The lessons were in a small group, which is very nice as you meet new people and can practice together, but the group is still small enough to get personal attention. There is a very good balance between speaking, grammar and vocabulary in every lesson. As part of the course you get a book that is okay (I would like some more grammar explanation in the book, it is mostly exercises), however there are a lot of good exercises that we were not able to cover all during the course, which allows you to keep practicing even after the course. What I appreciated most is the tips from the teacher about common phrases and swiss terms, that only a native speaker can tell you and you definitelly do not get through platforms like DuoLingo that I was using before! All with all definitely very happy I joined the course :)
Vox school is in the complex well organized and offers both private lessons and small-group lessons. I liked also the possibility to attend the course online, that makes it even more flexible and gives you the possibility to attend the course from anywhere. I think that one of the advantages of the school is that the teachers are very well prepared. I am enjoying my German course with Larissa, she is very professional and she has very good teaching skills. I also appreciate that she prepares the class in advance and that she always prepare for me a summary of each lesson, that is very helpful for the learning process. Because of my experience, I strongly recommend Vox school.
Language learning at Vox has been a great experience. They are very flexible and responsive and always tried to tailor lessons to fit and grow my actual abilities.
They are best in their profession... :) <3
Great teachers, flexible schedule, convenient location - I enjoyed my German B2 and C1 classes I had with VOX.
