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.

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.
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.
Small groups, good progress, relaxed atmosphere

(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.
Very professional and individual approach to the students
Vox Language School has an amazing philosophy when it comes to teaching and language learning. The students are in the centre of attention and their needs and wants are focused on with empathy and interest. The whole team is warm and welcoming and as a teacher I especially appreciate the recognition from my students and boss. I can definitely recommend this school to anyone - students and teachers!
A big thank you to Vicky from Vox-Sprachschule! She was always very supportive and knew exactly what I needed to focus on to improve my English for my C1 exam.
(Translated by Google) I attended a test preparation course with VOX at Tatiana. The course was super structured and well organized. I was able to learn a lot in a short time. The teacher recognized my strengths and weaknesses immediately and adapted the course content to them. I would say it's one of the best courses I've ever attended and I definitely recommend it to anyone. (Original) Ich habe bei VOX einen Prüfungsvorbereitungs-Kurs bei Tatiana besucht. Der Kurs war super strukturiert und gut organisiert. Ich konnte in kurzer Zeit sehr viel lernen. Die Lehrerin erkannte meine Stärken und Schwächen sofort und passte die Kursinhalte auch an diese an. Ich würde sagen, es ist einer der besten Kurse, den ich bisher besucht habe und ich kann die Schule auf jeden Fall jedem empfehlen.
