The C1 level is already about the complexity of language use. The vocabulary will be massively expanded again and we will work on the ability to deal with complex communicative context in any situation of your life. If you still have gaps or uncertainties from previous levels, we will of course help you to close them in an effective and fun way.

Our Goethe-Zertifikat C1 exam preparation course is ideal if you need to improve your German for work or in order to study in German. If you have already successfully completed B2, we would love to help you get ready for the Goethe C1 exam.
There are two main components to passing a language exam: having the right language level and being familiar with the exam format. During this course, your teacher will assist you on both fronts. You will become acquainted with every section of the exam while using exam-specific materials while also improving your language skills.
Our class sizes are very small (3-5 participants), which ensures that you teacher is able to adapt the class to your requirements. You will learn to express yourself more fluently in professional and social situations and work on developing your formal writing skills to help you at university or at work. By the end of the class you will be able to sit your exam with confidence knowing that you have prepared well.

I did a German B2 superintensive course. Both my teachers were great. Remarkable skills of delivering the information, knowledgeable of the language , interested to make me learn. Very well organized school. Very strongly recommended.
(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.
(Translated by Google) Excellent school, very good teachers. Completely recommendable. (Original) Excelente escuela, muy buenos maestros. Completamente recomendable.
I was taking individual classes and I had good teacher during the training. More focus on practical learning vs. overkill with grammar.
Einfach Top. Wir lernen in kleinen Gruppen und werden bestens versorgt. Volle Empfehlung 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
(Translated by Google) A modern, "crisp", dynamic, flexible and very likable school, where teaching and working with the behind-the-scenes teams is great fun! A great job that I can definitely recommend. (Original) Eine moderne, "knackige", dynamische, flexible und sehr sympathische Schule, an der das Unterrichten und die Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams hinter den Kulissen enormen Spass macht! Ein toller Arbeitsplatz, den ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen kann.
Learned a lot and my teacher is patience and helpful.
My experience with VOX was fantastic. I did a 2 month private online course with Isabel and I was amazed at how much I actually learned in such a short time. She is a very skilled teacher and the lessons were always relaxed and friendly. When I struggled with some of the concepts she was able to really explain the intricate details In an easy way that really helped me progress and really understand what I was learning. I will definitely continue on with VOX and Isabel, I highly recommend their services for learning German.
Thank you Vox Sprachschule for handling all my enquiries promptly and professionally. I have really enjoyed my online German lessons with Valentina. The lessons are always fun, the content relevant and the grammar has been so clearly explained and summarised!
(Translated by Google) I really like the Swiss German course at Vox with Nataly. The usual dull memorization and editing of tasks to textbook is completely eliminated. Rather, emphasis is placed on the daily application and as Nataly pays much attention to the pronunciation and binds according to individual difficulties appropriate teaching materials and exercise variants. It is a class that is fun and where I feel well cared for. I gladly recommend the Vox language school. (Original) Der schweizerdeutsch Kurs bei Vox mit Nataly gefällt mir sehr. Das übliche stumpfe Auswendiglernen und Bearbeiten von Aufgaben nach Lehrbuch entfällt völlig. Vielmehr wird Wert auf die tägliche Anwendung gelegt und da achtet Nataly sehr auf die Aussprache und bindet je nach individuellen Schwierigkeiten entsprechende Lehrunterlagen und Übungsvarianten ein. Es ist ein Unterricht, der Spass macht und wo ich mich gut aufgehoben fühle. Gerne empfehle ich die Vox Sprachenschule weiter.
Professional, motivated and engaging teachers and comfortable environment over all. I really recommend trying out this language school: Personally I learned several languages there!
I went to VOX for A2-B2 German courses and I plan to continue taking another courses with this school. I did not like classes in Bellingua and Vox, unlike Bellingua, is very flexible and found a perfect option for me. I had a great teacher Nathalie, the groups were always small (2-3 people in my case). So there is enough attention for everyone. We spoke a lot at the class and did not spent time doing boring grammar exercises. What is very important is that the school has adapted very fast and well to the corona-reality. The distant learning is organized perfectly, as well as the classroom learning. I highly recommend Vox!
