(Translated by Google) The VOX school is recommended, has very good, committed teachers. (Original) Die VOX Schule ist empfehlenswert, hat sehr gute, engagierte Lehrer.
Very easy to find course type and time slots that will fit the needs of students. Positive, friendly atmosphere , no unnecessary stress about German;)
I took some swiss-german courses with Silvan per Zoom. It was perfect, efficient, well organised. This school has very friendly teachers. Recommanded.
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.
I am very satisfied with my lessons with Isabel. She is a pedagogue and professional teacher. She listened to my needs and adapted the exercises accordingly. We put a focus on oral expression and acquisition of vocabulary. We also worked on important grammar aspects and written expression. I confirm that I have learned things and improved my level thanks to Isabel's teaching. She is skilled and able to adapt precisely to the needs. Please, congratulate her on my behalf. I also congratulate you and your institution for your seriousness.
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
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 train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.

Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole time.
