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.

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'm currently attending the Vox language school in Winterthur and can only recommend it to super nice people and they really help you reach your goal 👍👍👍😁😁😁 (Original) Ich besuche momentan die Vox- Sprachschule in Winterthur und kann es nur weiterempfehlen super nette Leute und sie helfen dir wirklich dein Ziel zu erreichen 👍👍👍😁😁😁
The school's own method used by all of its teachers focuses on pronunciation as well as on the vocabulary and grammar needed to be able to communicate within days of starting a course. This is further emphasized by the small size of the groups and the possibility of attending individual lessons, both of which allow the students' needs to be met. Working here is one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far. If you want or need to learn a language, this really is the place to go.
(Translated by Google) For two years now, we have been attending an English language course every two weeks for a couple of years. For some time now with a very competent and sympathetic instructor. We are sure to enjoy a special course with her. Our aim is not to reach a high level within a very short time, but we always want to take a small step further and keep the English "warm". Even previous teachers were very competent and we have always had great fun, which in our eyes is also an essential factor. We can highly recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Wir besuchen zu zweit seit ein paar Jahren alle zwei Wochen einen Englischsprachkurs. Seit geraumer Zeit jetzt bei einer äusserst kompetenten und sympathischen Kursleiterin. Wir geniessen sicher einen etwas speziellen Kurs mit ihr. Unser Ziel ist es nicht, innert kürzester Zeit einen hohen Level zu erreichen, sondern wir möchten immer einen kleinen Schritt weiter kommen und das Englisch "warm" halten. Auch vorherige Kursleiter waren sehr kompetent und es hat uns immer grossen Spass gemacht, was in unseren Augen auch ein wesentlicher Faktor ist. Wir können die VOX-Sprachschule wärmstens empfehlen.

Vox school is in the complex well organized and offers both private lessons and small-group lessons. I liked also the possibility to attend the course online, that makes it even more flexible and gives you the possibility to attend the course from anywhere. I think that one of the advantages of the school is that the teachers are very well prepared. I am enjoying my German course with Larissa, she is very professional and she has very good teaching skills. I also appreciate that she prepares the class in advance and that she always prepare for me a summary of each lesson, that is very helpful for the learning process. Because of my experience, I strongly recommend Vox school.
(Translated by Google) I am very happy with VOX school. I had my lessons with Kristina. After teaching her, I received the Goethe-Zertifikat C1. I can recommend Kristina for everyone. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit VOX-Schule. Ich habe mein Unterricht mit Kristina gehabt. Nach dem Unterricht bei ihr erhielt ich das Goethe-Zertifikat C1. Ich kann Kristina für jeden empfehlen.
Great location and very professional and motivated teachers. Have been going there for a year now and can totally recommend it!
(Translated by Google) Dear Mrs. Poulkas, The class with Yana was pretty insightful. I talked a lot during the class and she really helped me correct my mistakes. Yana attended the course in a complicated situation, with lots of lessons ahead and little time to work, but she managed to tweak the content to clarify the most important and fundamental points. I need some time to practice everything I have learned and oriented so that I can continue to learn with the B2 course. With kind regards Rodrigo Aires (Original) Liebe Frau Poulkas, Der Kurs mit Yana war ziemlich aufschlussreich. Ich habe während des Kurses viel geredet und sie hat mir sehr geholfen, meine Fehler zu korrigieren. Yana nahm an dem Kurs in einer komplizierten Situation teil, mit vielen anstehenden Lektionen und wenig Zeit zum Arbeiten, aber sie schaffte es, den Inhalt zu optimieren, um die wichtigsten und grundlegenden Punkte zu klären. Ich brauche etwas Zeit, um alles Gelernte und Orientierte zu üben, damit ich mit dem B2-Kurs weiter lernen kann. Freundliche Grüsse Rodrigo Aires
The course is going very well, Olga is a great teacher. I'm generally quite happy with the online option, although I prefer face to face. Olga adapts to my needs, corrects my errors spotting. She does her job well and I am making progress.
I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
It has been an excellent experience working with Cedric and Coralie. I have progressed fast and have had excellent support. I highly recommend VOX and its courses - the best in town. I find the entire set up very professional, excellent quality and highly customer focus.
