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.

Great flexibility, professional teachers, smooth and pleasant admin. After searching both in CH and abroad, I decided for this school because of their personalized and flexible approach, competitive price and the lessons turned out to be at a very high standard (online private lessons for me - super efficient). Thank you!
(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!
A convincing approach and a pleasant team! Students get to train all the linguistic skills (especially speaking) on a regular basis thanks to small group classes. As a teacher, it is really rewarding to be able to focus on the individual student‘s needs.
They are best in their profession... :) <3
(Translated by Google) You learn a lot in a short amount of time and quickly achieve success. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to speak a new language. (Original) Man lernt enorm viel in nur kurzer Zeit und erzielt schnell Erfolge. Ich empfehle diese Schule gerne jedem weiter, der eine neue Sprache beherrschen möchte.
I attended a private A2 German course online and never had any kind of issue. Teacher (Yana) was very professional and always available for the explanations. I learned a lot attending that course. Likely I'll start another course afther the sommer break.
(Translated by Google) Top instruction, friendly colleagues, exciting tasks (Original) Top Unterrichtungen, sympatische Kollegen, spannende Aufgaben
After a few courses at VOX, studying German, I can only recommend it for: 1) the quality / professionalism of the teaching (always prepared, hand-outs if necessary, follow-ups over email if a class is missed and topics / words / concepts promptly addressed the following lessons); 2) flexibility of the teaching and administration; 3) small class size (one of my main selection criteria) which allows for a good practice / feedback for all students; 4) convenient location close to HB (which was a big plus when you are trying to strike a balance with work and other chores). Both teachers I had so far (Coralie and Larissa) were extremely helpful, accurate and kind and helped me moved towards my goals.
Very professional and individual approach to the students
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.
Good school with enthusiastic and well-prepared teachers. Working in small groups is efficient.
(Translated by Google) I attended the VOX language school for a month to improve my English language skills. In addition to the well-located location, the lessons with Nico were sensational. The lessons were individually tailored to me, and the teaching materials were also very helpful. I can only recommend the VOX language school to everyone. (Original) Ich besuchte die VOX-Sprachschule für einen Monat um meine Sprachkenntnisse im Englisch zu verbessern. Neben der gut gelegenen Lage war auch der Unterricht bei Nico sensationell. Der Unterricht wurde individuell auf mich abgestimmt, auch die Lehrmittel waren sehr hilfreich. Ich kann jedem nur die VOX-Sprachschule weiterempfehlen.
