The Cambridge Advanced exam (formerly known as CAE) corresponds to the C1 level (second highest) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and is accepted by English-speaking universities worldwide. At the C1 level you will be able to communicate successfully at a professional level with a high level of fluency.
Our small class sizes (3-5 students) ensure a lot of individual attention. In such small groups your teacher is able to adapt to any individual needs and requests you may have. The course will help you to expand your vocabulary, fill any grammar gaps and communicate in a more nuanced way.
Materials specially designed for exam preparation will be used to train your ability to accurately answer the type of questions asked in this exam. You will also practise all the different text types required in the written exam. By the end of the exam you will be fully prepared to sit your exam with confidence.

I'm on my second course learning German with vox and enjoying every minute of it! Had 3 different teachers so far and each of them have been super knowledgeable and bring a clear structure to the course, while also keeping an eye on the progress of the students, making sure that they are understanding the topics. Definitely recommend.
I had the privilege to meet my teachers Kenny and Alex and learn German in a proactive and fun way. They inspired me to continously improve my german skills and not be afraid of speaking a new language. They always accommodated with the needs of the students and really emerge us in the culture and language. I recommend VOX to anybody that wants to learn German.
Der Englischkurs mit Cedric hat mir sehr gefallen. Der Kursort war ideal, das Kursbuch fand ich sehr interessant und hilfreich. Danke auch für die guten Gespräche und für die Flexibilität. Eine tolle Schule! (Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the English course with Cedric. The course location was ideal, I found the course book very interesting and helpful. Thanks also for the good discussions and for the flexibility. A great school!
They are best in their profession!!!
I love the teachers but wish for flexible lesson schedules
Die Erfahrung, einen Online-Kurs zu belegen, hat mir gut gefallen. Super praktisch und hat mir einen wunderbaren Fortschritt gebracht (Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the experience of taking an online course. Super practical and has given me wonderful progress
My experience with VOX has been overall very positive and I cannot stress enough how their format of teaching to a maximum of 4 people at a time helps students developing their linguistic skills faster: you have more time to speak, to ask questions and to interact with your co-students. Isabelle has been a fantastic teacher. I attended A1 and A2 German courses with her. She was always ready to help whenever I needed assistance and answered my questions super quickly every time. She also pushed me and motivated me constantly. Herzlichen Dank Isabelle!!
A really great school and the team. The teaching method works!
(Translated by Google) I did module A1 with teacher Yana and she is certainly the best of all!! The school's method is very busy, which means it's not for everyone, but with Yana's classes twice a week, I felt very encouraged to speak the language (German), in addition to her teaching skills being great. Linguistic knowledge all teachers have. (Original) Fiz o módulo A1 com a professora Yana e certamente é a melhor de todas!! O método da escola é bem corrido, o que significa que não é para qualquer um, mas com as aulas da Yana duas vezes por semana, me senti muito estimulada a falar o idioma (alemão), além da didática dela ser ótima. Conhecimento linguístico todos os professores têm.
Super teacher for Swiss German - Silvan Plattner. Highly flexible regarding scheduling, fun lessons, overall very good value and IMO very good improvement of my Swiss German.
I have to admit that my experience with VOX up to now is really positive. I really love having my French course with Sébastien: he is really professional, he knows how to teach French and he makes my learning really pleasant. I am definitely moving toward my goals (and also pretty fast), if I think I started learning french only a few months ago. During the lessons we just go fast through the grammar (which I can do alone at home) and we have a lot of speaking practice together. I am really satisfied up to now and I intend to continue my course with VOX :D
Locations is perfect! Teachers are very professional and just cool ;) Recommend this school in any aspect!
