The A2 Key (formerly KET) exam preparation course is suitable for students who already possess basic knowledge of English (completed A1) and corresponds to the A2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The Cambridge Key exam is accepted worldwide and demonstrates that you can communicate at a basic level with native speakers using a variety of basic phrases and expressions and understand basic written English.
Your teacher will help you improve your level, particularly your speaking level, through varied practice in our small groups (3-5 students). You will receive ample feedback from your teacher thanks to the small class sizes. Speaking practice is vital to make you feel comfortable speaking the language in real-life situations and will help the grammar sink in.
In addition to improving your grasp of grammar and starting to expand your basic vocabulary, your teacher will help you prepare for the Cambridge A2 Key. You will practise all aspects of the exam in class so you are fully prepared for the exam tasks by the end of the class.
Upcoming Cambridge exams
Great opportunity to practice speaking and listening skills with the group and teacher. Flexible online approach with mature technology made lessons during lockdown possible. Review materials are shared promptly in pdf after each lesson. I also like that Isabelle inspired us to learn from multiple angles including reading a book together and watching YouTube videos in between lessons.
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 :)
Had a very good learning period with Nadine! Would definitely recommend VOX-Sprachschule to anyone who would be interested to start picking up a new language in the fastest way possible!

I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
I did a German B2 superintensive course. Both my teachers were great. Remarkable skills of delivering the information, knowledgeable of the language , interested to make me learn. Very well organized school. Very strongly recommended.
I'm currently learning German faster than I thought possible. I'm very impressed with Mr. Botchkarev's method, very systematic and oriented towards practical application.
(Translated by Google) Good school with a teacher (Marcella) who is very professional. (Original) Bonne école avec un professeur (Marcella) qui est très professionnel.
I came to this school with 0 knowledge of German. I was very nervous at the beginning but the teachers at this school are so welcoming and really make you feel at ease. I especially find Christina's teaching approach really great and feel Ive learnt so much in her classes (both private and joint classes). I couldn't recommend this school enough!
(Translated by Google) I am happy with the course. I liked the flexibility best. I hope I am close enough to my goal to pass the C1 exam. I can't think of anything spontaneously that you could have done better. Therefore: thumbs up !! (Original) Ich bin zufrieden mit dem Kurs. Am besten hat mir die Flexibilität gefallen. Ich hoffe, ich bin meinem Ziel genug nah, um die Prüfung im C1 zu bestehen. Spontan fällt mir nichts ein, was Sie hätten besser machen können. Deshalb: Daumen hoch!!
