A big thank you to Vicky from Vox-Sprachschule! She was always very supportive and knew exactly what I needed to focus on to improve my English for my C1 exam.
(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.
(Translated by Google) My teacher Priska is very nice and always patient. (Original) Meine Lehrerin Priska ist sehr nett und immer geduldig.
I could not be more happy with my French course. The instructor really knows how teach a language. The course is well structured, but the teacher also knows how to improvise when this makes sense. Even though I am a beginner, I feel like I can already practice my speaking right away during this course. The teacher is both very friendly and professional. This course not only efficiently helps me to improve my French, it also makes learning fun! A nice added advantage of Vox is that they make signing up super easy without any unnecessary admisntrative hassle.

Vielen Dank für das Engagement und die tolle Erfahrung, wie einfach und doch intensiv die deutsche Sprache zu erlernen ist an Ihrer Schule. Grosses Lob!
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.
(Translated by Google) I completed an online one-to-one course in English level B2 and I am very satisfied. Communication with the teacher is very easy and I have benefited extremely. The school is very professional and the course has a logical structure and good school materials. Very motivating. Thanks to the VOX language school! (Original) Habe einen Online Einzel-Kurs absolviert in Englisch Level B2 und bin sehr zufrieden. Die Kommunikation mit der Lehrerin ist sehr einfach und ich habe extrem profitiert.

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 !
This is an amazing experience ☺ I participated in german B2 and now on C1 level. My teacher, Priska, is very good at understanding individual strengths and needs and adapts the lesson accordingly, no matter if in a group or private lesson context. The tempo is intense with homework in between the lessons. The upside is the great progress that you feel which comes in a short period of time. The school is so great that it makes me want to continue studying more languages once I'm happy with my German ☺
(Translated by Google) I had the opportunity to take my first French course (A1 / A2) with Sebastien Pruvost. Sebastien is now one of my favorite teachers so far, trying hard to teach French quickly and in a structured manner. His method is based on traditional textbooks such as Grammaire en dialogues as well as on playful, authentic auditory and visual options. He is flexible and specifically caters to the needs of his student. I can heartily recommend Sebastien as a French teacher at the VOX School! (Original) Ich hatte die Gelegenheit meinen ersten Französischkurs (A1/A2) mit Sebastien Pruvost zu belegen. Sebastien ist mittlerweile einer meiner bisherigen Lieblingslehrer, bemüht einem Französisch schnell und strukturiert beizubringen. Seine Methode basiert auf traditionelle Lehrbücher wie Grammaire en dialogues sowie auf spielerische, authentische auditive und visuelle Optionen. Er zeigt sich flexibel und geht gezielt auf die Bedürfnisse seines Schülers ein. Ich kann Sebastien als Französischlehrer der VOX Schule von Herzen empfehlen!
I did B2 German course and I absolutely recommend it. The course with Agnieszka has been amazing! Aga's teaching style is fantastic and she always manages to make learning pleasant and fun. I definitely improved my grammar skills which was what I was hoping for. One of my favorite parts is that Aga always uses examples from real life so I could implement what I had learned in the very same evening during conversations with my friends and family. That boosts motivation a lot. Plus the more 'dramatic' expressions (such as: dieser Zug ist abgefahren, hier hört der Spass auf) make it easier to remember and are fun to use afterwards. We were often asked what we would like to do more so I can't say anything was missing. I really wouldn't know how to improve the course, it was already above my expectations :)
Really enjoyed the A1 course with Hanna. She's always been very patient and available to explain things several times when needed.
