(Translated by Google) I took private lessons in German at VOX Sprachschule and was able to achieve very good results in a short time. My teacher Saskia was very friendly, competent and uncomplicated. She put together an individual program for me, which addressed my weaknesses and we mainly concentrated on speaking. The location of the school is very central and the rooms have high ceilings with lots of light. So I found the atmosphere very pleasant. In summary, I can highly recommend the school if you want to get results quickly. (Original) Ich habe Privatunterricht in Deutsch bei VOX Sprachschule genommen und konnte in einer kurzen Zeit sehr gute Ergebnisse erzielen. Meine Lehrerin Saskia war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert. Sie hat für mich ein individuelles Programm zusammengestellt, welches auf meine Schwächen eingegangen ist und wir haben uns vor allem auf das Sprechen konzentriert. Die Lage der Schule ist sehr zentral und die Räume haben hohe Decken mit viel Licht. Ich fand die Atmosphäre daher sehr angenehm. Zusammenfassend kann ich die Schule sehr empfehlen, wenn man schnell Ergebnisse erzielen möchte.
A convincing approach and a pleasant team! Students get to train all the linguistic skills (especially speaking) on a regular basis thanks to small group classes. As a teacher, it is really rewarding to be able to focus on the individual student‘s needs.
Excellent VOX to learn German and especially with the teacher Nathalie N. ! Clean and tidy rooms, professional and pedagogical teacher, small groups and very nice people ! Thank you very much VOX !
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 :)
(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
Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole time.
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.
I am very happy with the teaching method of this school. Before I started to learn German with this method, I had been learning German already two years. Nevertheless I didn't feel power to communicate, not even talking about passing the exam in order to receive permit C. And with the method of this school I only needed one and a half months and I passed the exam with 85% out of 100%. I started to talk to people. I started to understand cases and genders. Rules of the German language no longer scare me. It all became like a game for me. And my learning now goes on, ones you understand the method, you can continue learning all the time. I recommend this school very much. And if I decide to learn some other language more, I will absolutely go only to this language school.
I started learning german 1:1 with Kristina before COVID hit and everything was forced to close, I've been really impressed how quickly Vox set everything up for me to be able to continue my studies remotely via Zoom. I'm able to use my time productively and continue learning German. Thanks for everything! Darragh
I had online German course B2 level . There were only 3 people in our class, so I had a lot more chance to talk in German. My teacher Isabel was very professional and friendly, I would definitely recommend her for the lesson. She always gave us the homeworks and sent us back correted answer quickly which helped me a lot as well. It costs quite a lot, but as there are not many students in a class, so it was worth it. Unfortunately, there was no administrations office in Winterthur branch, so it seems all enquries are done only with email or the telephone. But Administrative person calling me back in a short time.
(Translated by Google) The workout for your language muscles. Fitness for the Speech Muscles - the Vox method convinced me to become part of a great team of teachers. Together we get the students talking. (Original) The workout for your language muscles. Fitness für die Sprechmuskeln – die Vox-Methode überzeugte mich, Teil eines tollen Lehrerteams zu werden. Gemeinsam bringen wir die Studierenden zum Sprechen.
