Pre-course 1st year secondary

Jump-start a successful future

Solidify German and maths skills

New exam in 2020

The exam regulations for the entrance exam from secondary school 2/3 to Zürich Gymnasiums will be completely reorganized in the year 2020. The incoming marks and the teacher's recommendation will be important again. This means that it is important to ensure a constant level of academic performance from early on.

As a leading provider of preparatory courses for the entrance exams, Lern-Forum has adjusted our course offerings accordingly.

We now offer themed courses beginning in the first year of secondary school.

The effect of the pre-course on 1st-year secondary students

Parents often ask themselves: when is the proper time to begin preparing for the next level of education?

The child should learn that constant, regular study is the key to success. This ensures that they do not have gaps in their understanding and are able to work on problem areas without rushing. The truth is that teachers prefer and encourage good students. The best students can build on this advantage.

If 1st-year secondary teachers see Gymnasium in your child's future, your child can profit from special attention and become more confident. School is more fun when you understand the material. Homework is no longer a torment, instead becoming a way to confirm and solidify ability.

Due to a large number of parent requests, we now offer a pre-course for 1st-year secondary students.

As usual, our courses are tightly run, led by excellent and motivated teachers and located centrally near Stadelhofen Train Station.
