Langgymi Entrance Exam Preparation
in Zurich

For students to attend the Gymnasium after primary school, they need to pass the “Zentrale Aufnahmeprüfung”. This is an ambitious goal because it requires above-average knowledge at 6th-grade primary school level.

Our tried and trusted LearningCulture course program allows the students to gain the necessary knowledge and confidence to achieve their goal.

The offers on this page aim at the students in the 6th grade who want to attend the Langymnasium. Students in the 7th - 9th grade (Sekundarschule) may visit the following page: Kurzgymi Course.

Exceptional Situation / Corona-Virus: Our courses are expected to take place on-site and in-person starting June 8th, 2020. (Updated 27.05.2020)

This course focuses on the most challenging type of questions in the exam: word problems. During 5 half-days, students will learn how to solve these problems best.

Intensive Course During the “Sportferien” Incl. Mock Exam

The “Sportferien” are the last holidays before the entrance exam, and the students who would like to transfer to the “Gymnasium” should use this time to study. Our intensive courses offer the best opportunity for this revision.

German: The first three days will be dedicated to the three parts of the German exam: Writing an Essay (text types, structure and outline, increase attractiveness, spelling and discussion of an example essay), Text Comprehension (question types, answers), Language Understanding (grammar, understanding of language, construct of language and rare questions).

Mathematics: We will be mainly working with word problems since these make up a considerable portion of the exam and consist of different types of problems: general word problems, word problems with fractions and distance-time-velocity word problems.

Day 4: Mock exam

Day 5: Discussion of the mock exam and individual coaching to work on weak spots.

Mock Exam

No matter how extensively one has studied the theory, the stress and time pressure during the entrance exam can make everyone break a sweat. Thanks to our mock exam, students can prepare themselves for this kind of situation and get an impression of their current state of knowledge. Our pedagogical administration develops the exam based on the current exam regulations of the Canton of Zurich. The exam is marked, graded and returned to the student with written feedback, including tips on further exam preparations.

If you wish, the mock exam results and the remaining exam preparation can be discussed with Nicole Rüede individually. She is our pedagogical director and the key coordinator for the Langgymi entrance exam preparations at LearningCulture.

Further Information

  • Realistic exam conditions
  • Self-created exam
  • Several exam dates (you may participate in multiple mock exams)
  • On request: individual discussion of the results (included in the price)

All Langgymi Course Types

What Makes Us Stand Out

LearningCulture Course Books LearningCulture Lehrmittel Langgymi

There are no course books on the market which meet our requirements. That’s why we developed our own. Our Langgymi course books explain the topics comprehensively, give helpful tips on how to remember difficult topics and contain diverse exercises, including old exam questions. Their structure is also perfectly aligned with our course concept. See for yourself:

Professional Course Instructors

Our coaches are experienced teachers with strong didactic skills, a lot of patience and a positive, motivating personality. They are selected according to the LearningCulture Quality Guidelines and trained to the latest entrance exam conditions by our pedagogical director Nicole Rüede.

She is responsible for the LearningCulture Langgymi entrance exam preparation and also teaches as a course instructor.
David HeilDavid Heil
David Heil is an expert in picking up students where they are in terms of understanding. He knows how to help them overcome their weaknesses and encourage their strengths. In addition to his extensive experience as a tutor, he also taught in a private school for 3 years.
Elena EreminElena Eremin
As a trained primary school teacher, Elena Eremin has been part of the LearningCulture-Team since 2018. She has taught many lessons already and is very popular among her clients. At present, she is fully focused on the Langgymi entrance exam preparations.

Communication & Transparency

The preparation for the entrance exam is a big project for your child, as well as for you as a family. We consider the direct and honest exchange with you to be an essential part of our offer. Depending on course type, one to two individual meetings with our pedagogical director Nicole Rüede are included. The course instructors are also available for questions before and after every lesson.

Customer Testimonials

To ensure and continuously improve the quality of our courses, we rely on feedback from parents. But we also regularly ask our students for their opinion on the lessons. You can read a few replies (translated from German) here:

„The entire week was awesome! If I always had these teachers and lessons this interesting, I’d be in school 24/7.“

Alexander, primary school student, intensive course February 2018

„The exam preparation course for the Langzeitgymnasium met all our expectations. The school's atmosphere is very positive. The teacher assessed our son correctly after only a short time and gave him concrete tips. The communication with the parents was excellent and pleasant, the pedagogical leader Ms. Rüede and the secretariat have been especially friendly and helpful. It was nice to see that at LearningCulture, the child’s needs are met that well. For us, it's clearly the Nr. 1 in Zurich, since we’ve also experienced other courses. We 100% recommend this school and would definitely book another course there. Thank you very much for your help.“

Erika Stifter, Langgymi intensive course 2019 (Google Review)

„Dear Ms Rüede, in short: “We are delighted and would recommend LearningCulture at any time.” Mia and Samuel enjoy going to the exam preparation and have confirmed multiple times – unprompted – that they learn a lot. The concept with its assessments gives Mia, Samuel and us as parents a good idea of where they stand in terms of preparation. The regular feedback contributes to the transparency of the preparation status. The course books seem to be on a professional level. The study atmosphere in the preparation courses have been described as very focused and pleasant. When the participation on a Sunday afternoon wasn’t possible, the secretariat offered us a simple alternative – without us having to pay additional fees. But to improve, criticism is necessary. Unfortunately, we cannot help in that instance, because – even after a lot of thinking – we couldn't find anything to criticize. I wish you continued enjoyment in teaching and further developing your company. Best regards.“

Mr & Mrs Menzer, Langgymi entrance exam preparation course 2017/18

„Dear Ms Rüede. We would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the positive feedback Moritz has given us today, especially regarding you as a teacher. He told us that you respond well to the kids' needs. He knows that you only checked the kids in terms of their level of understanding today and that the course will get harder. He told us in his own words that he is looking forward to the next course day because he knows he can tackle even the hardest topics with you. We couldn’t wish for more after the first course day! I am curious to see how this continues. The good start was very important to us. Thank you very much!“

Mr & Mrs Lehner, Langgymi entrance exam preparation course 2018/19
