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.

I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
I'm really happy with VOX and Larissa, the lessons are engaging and fun, a lot of speaking practice and grammar. But the most important thing is they care about your experience. Definitely recommending.
I took some swiss-german courses with Silvan per Zoom. It was perfect, efficient, well organised. This school has very friendly teachers. Recommanded.
My experience with VOX was fantastic. I did a 2 month private online course with Isabel and I was amazed at how much I actually learned in such a short time. She is a very skilled teacher and the lessons were always relaxed and friendly. When I struggled with some of the concepts she was able to really explain the intricate details In an easy way that really helped me progress and really understand what I was learning. I will definitely continue on with VOX and Isabel, I highly recommend their services for learning German.
(Translated by Google) I really like the Swiss German course at Vox with Nataly. The usual dull memorization and editing of tasks to textbook is completely eliminated. Rather, emphasis is placed on the daily application and as Nataly pays much attention to the pronunciation and binds according to individual difficulties appropriate teaching materials and exercise variants. It is a class that is fun and where I feel well cared for. I gladly recommend the Vox language school. (Original) Der schweizerdeutsch Kurs bei Vox mit Nataly gefällt mir sehr. Das übliche stumpfe Auswendiglernen und Bearbeiten von Aufgaben nach Lehrbuch entfällt völlig. Vielmehr wird Wert auf die tägliche Anwendung gelegt und da achtet Nataly sehr auf die Aussprache und bindet je nach individuellen Schwierigkeiten entsprechende Lehrunterlagen und Übungsvarianten ein. Es ist ein Unterricht, der Spass macht und wo ich mich gut aufgehoben fühle. Gerne empfehle ich die Vox Sprachenschule weiter.
Great flexibility, professional teachers, smooth and pleasant admin. After searching both in CH and abroad, I decided for this school because of their personalized and flexible approach, competitive price and the lessons turned out to be at a very high standard (online private lessons for me - super efficient). Thank you!
VOX is not the cheapest language school in Zurich, but the quality makes it worth the price. The teachers are well-qualified and kind, and the small class size and mindful composition is much appreciated. Their administration has also been swiftly responsive to any scheduling or other issues raised.
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!
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!
After a few courses at VOX, studying German, I can only recommend it for: 1) the quality / professionalism of the teaching (always prepared, hand-outs if necessary, follow-ups over email if a class is missed and topics / words / concepts promptly addressed the following lessons); 2) flexibility of the teaching and administration; 3) small class size (one of my main selection criteria) which allows for a good practice / feedback for all students; 4) convenient location close to HB (which was a big plus when you are trying to strike a balance with work and other chores). Both teachers I had so far (Coralie and Larissa) were extremely helpful, accurate and kind and helped me moved towards my goals.
Very positive experience, I could see a clear improvement of my german level after doing the A2 course. Very competent teachers and a strong focus on speaking which is the best way to fill confident in actually speaking the language. I recommend!
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.
