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.

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
The best of its kind in Zürich - if not Switzerland! Amazing staff.
Good school with enthusiastic and well-prepared teachers. Working in small groups is efficient.
(Translated by Google) You learn a lot in a short amount of time and quickly achieve success. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to speak a new language. (Original) Man lernt enorm viel in nur kurzer Zeit und erzielt schnell Erfolge. Ich empfehle diese Schule gerne jedem weiter, der eine neue Sprache beherrschen möchte.
(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 :)
(Translated by Google) A great school with a very pleasant atmosphere, which invites to learn and to speak. I am very happy to be part of the VOX team! (Original) Eine super Schule mit sehr angenehmer Atmosphäre, die zum Lernen und Sprechen einlädt. Ich bin sehr froh, Teil des VOX-Teams zu sein!

(Original) Prima Kommunikation zum Finden des geeigneten Kurses! Super nette Lehrerin, die professionell lehrt und auf die eigenen Bedürfnisse eingeht! Ich werde weitere Kurse buchen!! Merci!!
I have had an excellent experience during my B2 German course with VOX. Yana is an incredible teacher, she is really encouraging and patient and my German has improved more than I ever could have hoped! Yana made sure that every lesson was tailored towards my needs and really went above and beyond in making sure I was always getting the most out of the course and our lessons - can't thank her enough!!
Highly recommend it!!
Thank you Vox Sprachschule for handling all my enquiries promptly and professionally. I have really enjoyed my online German lessons with Valentina. The lessons are always fun, the content relevant and the grammar has been so clearly explained and summarised!
(Translated by Google) My teacher Priska is very nice and always patient. (Original) Meine Lehrerin Priska ist sehr nett und immer geduldig.
I'm on my second course learning German with vox and enjoying every minute of it! Had 3 different teachers so far and each of them have been super knowledgeable and bring a clear structure to the course, while also keeping an eye on the progress of the students, making sure that they are understanding the topics. Definitely recommend.
