On B1 level at VOX, you will work towards the goal of being able to speak actively and independently, because at level B1 practically all of the grammar required for speaking freely will be completed. To achieve this, the principles of language usage on B1 level will be explained to you in a simple way using the VOX method, so that you can apply them immediately in your everyday life. We will work in a very focused and playful way on the sentence structure, declension of the nouns, declension of the adjectives, verb conjugation, Konjunktiv II, tenses and prepositions so that you can master these topics perfectly by the end of the course.

If you are ready to sit your first intermediate level exam for German, then this course is for you. This course is also perfect for those who want to gain Swiss citizenship and need to prove that they have B1-level speaking skills or for your C-permit.
In this course, you will progress from a basic to an independent user of German and you will be able to deal with most daily situations in German by the end of the course through our speaking-based method. Your experienced teacher will not only help you to improve your language skills, but also to develop strategies for tackling the different parts of the exam efficiently and accurately.
Our classes are very small (3-5 people). This small size means your teacher can adapt to you and any special requirements you may have. Just ask your teacher. This course will cover all parts of the exam: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, language elements (vocabulary and grammar), writing and, naturally, VOX’s specialty, speaking. Through repetition of exam-like exercises in class, working through the exam will be a breeze by the end.

Professional service, excellent teacher! Strongly recommend
This is an amazing experience ☺ I participated in german B2 and now on C1 level. My teacher, Priska, is very good at understanding individual strengths and needs and adapts the lesson accordingly, no matter if in a group or private lesson context. The tempo is intense with homework in between the lessons. The upside is the great progress that you feel which comes in a short period of time. The school is so great that it makes me want to continue studying more languages once I'm happy with my German ☺
(Translated by Google) I completed the B1 level English course at the Vox language school in Winterthur. In one-to-one lessons, I worked with lecturers who have a very high level of professional competence. The lessons are adapted to individual needs. The lecturers were able to respond very well to my needs. Due to my previous knowledge, I had no problems with text and reading comprehension. So I was able to concentrate mainly on speaking during the class. (Original) Ich absolvierte den Englischkurs auf dem Niveau B1 bei der Vox-Sprachschule in Winterthur. Im Einzelunterricht arbeitete ich mit Dozenten zusammen, welche eine sehr hohe Fachkompetenz aufweisen. Der Unterricht wird auf die individuellen Bedürfnisse angepasst. Die Dozenten konnten auf meine Bedürfnisse sehr gut eingehen. Durch meine Vorkenntnisse hatte ich keine Probleme mit dem Text- und Leseverständnis. Somit konnte ich mich während dem Unterricht hauptsächlich auf das Sprechen konzentrieren.
I think I achieved my goals by doing a course with Felicity. I learned something new about learning as well, which I can apply in every studying subject. That's why I can recommend this course to everyone who learns German. The studying materials and school facilities are also of highest quality. Thank you ones more for your team work!
(Translated by Google) Last autumn I took private lessons in French for several weeks and was very satisfied with the support and preparation of the language teacher. We made the course very dynamic and focused on speaking. On the one hand, he recognized individual weaknesses and placed the learning focus on them, and on the other hand, he was always able to answer spontaneous questions about the French language confidently and well. I can definitely recommend the language school without reservation! (Original) Im letzten Herbst habe ich über mehrere Wochen Privatstunden in Französisch besucht und war mit der Betreuung und Vorbereitungs des Sprachlehrers sehr zufrieden. Wir haben den Kurs sehr dynamisch ausgestaltet und den Fokus aufs Sprechen gelegt. Dabei hat er einerseits individuelle Schwächen erkannt und darauf den Lernfokus gelegt und andererseits konnte er immer wieder auftauchende Spontanfragen zur französischen Sprache stets souverän und gut beantworten. Kann die Sprachschule auf jeden Fall uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!
I could not be more happy with my French course. The instructor really knows how teach a language. The course is well structured, but the teacher also knows how to improvise when this makes sense. Even though I am a beginner, I feel like I can already practice my speaking right away during this course. The teacher is both very friendly and professional. This course not only efficiently helps me to improve my French, it also makes learning fun! A nice added advantage of Vox is that they make signing up super easy without any unnecessary admisntrative hassle.
(Translated by Google) Within a very short time I learned the basics of the Spanish language at the VOX and had a lot of fun! My teacher has adapted the approach and content to my needs, which makes it easier to get started in a new language and keeps your interest and motivation high. The school also scores with a very central location and high flexibility in the organization of appointments - overall I am very satisfied :) (Original) Innerhalb von sehr kurzer Zeit lernte ich an der VOX die Grundzüge der spanischen Sprache und hatte dabei eine ganze Menge Spass! Meine Lehrerin hat die Vorgehensweise und Inhalte stark auf meine Bedürfnisse angepasst, was den Einstieg in eine neue Sprache einerseits erleichtert und das Interesse & Motivation hoch hält. Die Schule punktet zudem mit einem sehr zentralen Standort und hoher Flexibilität bei der Organisation der Termine - insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden :)
(Translated by Google) Professional and committed teachers and a generally pleasant atmosphere. I can only recommend it! (Original) Professionelle und engatierte Lehrer*innen und allgemein eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Nur zu empfehlen!
Me and my wife took 5 different classes at VOX and we are 100% satisfied with the level of attention and quality of instructions we have recieved during our courses. Both German (A1, A2) and English (C1) classes helped us in ramping up our language skills.
I honestly have to say I’m truly satisfied by the course you are providing. Cristina is a highly professional teacher and she really cares about our improvements. She is always at your disposal for any request and despite the limited time available she does manage to organize the lessons in order to cover both theory and practice. In addition, I think there is a perfect balancing of homework load, always with a view to the achievements of the objectives required to prepare for the A1 exam.
(Translated by Google) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Friendly, purposeful, reliable, serious but not too much, a creative force and with great pleasure at work. I probably booked private lessons with an optimal teacher. (Original) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Amichevole, finalizzata, affidabile, seria ma non troppo, una forza creativa e con molto piacere sul lavoro. Probabilmente ho prenotato lezioni private con una insegnante ottimale.
I am extremely satisfied with Laura’s lessons. I loved her method and I improved a lot. The course was perfect with her, she is a great teacher and I am truly thankful to her for what I have learned. I would definitely recommend VOX Schule to other people. Small classes for qualitative results.
