Kurzgymi Exam Preparation in Zurich

This course is aimed at students in the 2nd/3rd grade of Sekundarschule.
People interested in Gymi from grade 6 of Primarschule please visit this page:
Langgymi course.

Before they can attend the Kurzgymnasium students must pass the central entrance examination after the 2nd or 3rd grade of Sekundarschule. This is an ambitious goal, as they must perform above average in German, mathematics and French.

With the proven LearningCulture course programme we enable them to gain the knowledge and self-confidence they need to achieve this goal.

What characterises our courses

Course Instructors

Our coaches are experienced teachers with extensive knowledge of German, French and mathematics. They are selected according to the LearningCulture quality guidelines and prepared for the current conditions of the entrance examination.

You, the parents, stay informed

Communicating with you is important to us. After three course days, you will receive the first written feedback on your child's performance and commitment. You’ll get the second feedback in the middle of the course and the third after the exam simulation. The coaches also keep a personal "logbook" for all children, which you can consult at any time.

Small Groups

Individual support is absolutely necessary in order to address comprehension difficulties and problems of individual students and to provide direct feedback. To ensure that everyone receives as much personal attention as possible from our coaches, we have limited the maximum size of our courses to six participants.

Professional Teaching Aids

We could not find any teaching aids that met our requirements, so we simply developed our own. Our teaching aids for Langgymi explain the material vividly, provide simple memory aids and contain versatile exercises including tasks from old examinations. In addition, the structure is perfectly adapted to our course concept.

Thematic Courses During Summer Holidays, Autumn Holidays and Christmas Holidays

Do you need some additional tricks to solve "Satzaufgaben" in math? Should the essays ("Aufsätze") be more convincing? In our themed courses, students can practise and improve exam-related skills. Specialised coaches show what is important during the exams, provide solutions and take away the fear of the tasks.

Essay training topics (Aufsatztraining): essays, active/passive, indirect speech, subjunctive 1 and 2.

Maths topics (Satzaufgaben): Simplification of terms, equations, typesetting tasks, surface areas and volumes.
