Preparation for the Langgymi Entrance-Exam in Zurich
The offers on this page are aimed at pupils of the 6th grade of primary school. People interested in Gymi from 2nd/3rd secondary school please visit this page:Kurzgymi-Coursess.
Before they can attend the “Gymnasium”, pupils must pass the central entrance examination. That’s an ambitious goal because in order to achieve this the knowledge of the 6th grade material of Primarschule must be above average.
With the reliable LearningCulture course programme we enable them to gain the knowledge and self-confidence they need to achieve this goal.
What characterizes our courses
Our coaches are experienced teachers with extensive knowledge of German and mathematics. They are selected according to the LearningCulture quality guidelines and prepared for the current conditions of the entrance examination. Short profiles of our Gymi coaches.pdf
Our Students Give us Good Marks
In order to ensure and continuously improve the quality of our courses, we depend on feedback from parents. But we also regularly ask our students what they think of our lessons. You can read some of the answers here. Student feedback on thematic courses.pdf
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.

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. Langgymi math teaching material excerpt.pdf
Our classic introduction to Gymi preparation. Gaps from school lessons are being closed and the methods and skills are being learned which are needed for intensive practise for the Gymi examination and in the examination training (Part 2).
Part 2 (10 x 4 lessons)
Here we familiarise our students with the types of tasks they will encounter during the Gymi exam. Step by step, solutions and procedures are learned and practised, which can then be accessed during the examination. A complete exam simulation under real conditions, including grading, is included.
The courses include preparation for the two examination subjects Mathematics and German. Visiting only one subject is also possible, please contact us.
Thematic Courses During Summer Holidays, Autumn Holidays and Christmas Holidays
Do you need some additional tricks to solve "Satzaufgaben" in math? Should the essays 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.
Intensive courses during “Sportferien”, including exam simulation
During the "Sportferien" in February we offer 5-day intensive courses. We concentrate on exercises in order to become confident in dealing with examination tasks. The course also includes two practise exams, which we created ourselves for this purpose. Under real conditions, the students can train the exam situation and then receive a well-founded assessment and valuable tips and tricks.
No matter how well you master the theory, the stress and time pressure of the examination situation can make everyone sweat. In our exam simulation students can prepare themselves for this situation and get an impression of their current state of knowledge. Our pedagogical management develops the exams based on the current examination regulations of the Canton of Zürich. The exam is corrected, graded and returned to the students with written feedback including tips for further preparation.
