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.

Very professional and individual approach to the students
I am very pleased with this school as well as Juliana Müller, she is wonderful, the best teacher possible.
(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.
(Translated by Google) The school is centrally located and the rooms are nicely decorated. My teacher is very competent and motivating. Although it demands a lot, it is fun and very instructive, so that the hour usually passes far too fast. (Original) Die Schule ist zentral gelegen und die Räume sind schön eingerichtet. Meine Lehrperson ist sehr kompetent und motivierend. Obwohl sie viel fordert, macht es Spass und ist sehr lehrreich, so dass die Stunde meist viel zu schnell verfliegt.
This is an excellent language school. I was looking for a flexible program that could accommodate my work and travel schedule, and yet allow me to gain a working knowledge of German fairly quickly. The staff at VOX-sprachschule were incredibly cooperative and helpful. With their assistance I was able to find the right level and schedule for lessons. In my case this was private lessons via video. But am sure the group lessons are excellent as well. The teaching materials and the quality of instruction is really superb. I am especially pleased with my instructor, Isabelle Wegmüller, who is very knowledgeable, patient and fun. I am making good progress and expect to continue on with my lessons for the foreseeable future. I highly recommend this language school.
Best language school in Zurich. My English and German course was exactly tailored to my needs. Cristina and Tatiana are really great teachers!
(Translated by Google) When I started learning German in January of this year, I met a teacher who was initially not very happy with him. After a few hours with Maxi, I realized that he had a different way of teaching. He didn't follow the examples in the book, he wanted to explain it to us in a more practical way so that we could think about it. A very good teacher, but strict, it requires that we are always active. In other words, it's great for us students. I finished the B1 course with him. Thanks Max. "I think the online lessons are good, you should have them on offer. I would also like to take lessons from home in the future. I have seen many teachers and schools and Olga is perfect for me. Olga looks at what we do everyone separately needs and adapts to our individual wishes and that is unique. Olga is very hardworking and responds to our opinions. " (Original) Als ich im Januar dieses Jahres anfing, Deutsch zu lernen, traf ich einen Lehrer, der anfangs nicht sehr zufrieden mit ihm war. Nach ein paar Stunden mit Maxi wurde mir klar, dass er eine andere Art zu unterrichten hatte. Er hielt sich nicht an die Beispiele im Buch, er wollte es uns praktischer erklären, damit wir darüber nachdenken. Ein sehr guter Lehrer, aber streng, es erfordert, dass wir immer aktiv sind. Mit anderen Worten, es ist großartig für uns Schüler. Ich habe den B1-Kurs mit ihm beendet. Danke Max. "Den Online- Unterricht finde ich gut, ihr solltet das im festen Angebot haben. Ich würde den Unterricht in Zukunft auch von zu Hause aus machen wollen. Ich habe viele Lehrer und Schulen gesehen und Olga ist perfekt für mich. Olga schaut, was wir alle separat brauchen und passt sich unseren individuellen Wünschen an und das ist einzigartig. Olga ist sehr fleissig und geht auf unsere Meinungen ein."
Great experience. Followed the B1 German course during Corona time and I am impressed by the flexibility of the school and the teacher Priska. The general quality of the course is very good and very personal. Priska is a great teacher - and will definitely recommend her and Vox schule! Thanks! Pieter Laban
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 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!
(Translated by Google) I have had a really good experience with VOX language school, I attended a B2 English course to prepare for Cambridge First. My teacher (Tatiana) did an excellent job. The classes were held in small groups, which I really liked. In addition to the homework for the course, she also gave me homework for exam preparation, which I found very good. I will definitely attend a course at VOX again one day greetings Nils (Original) Ich habe wirklich gute Erfahrung gemacht mit VOX-Sprachschule, ich besuchte einen B2 Englisch Kurs, um mich auf das Cambridge First vorzubereiten. Meine Lehrerin (Tatiana) machte einen ausgezeichneten Job. Der Unterricht fand in kleinen Gruppen statt, was mir wirklich sehr gefiel. Neben den Hausaufgaben des Kurses gab sie mir auch noch Hausaufgaben für die Prüfungsvorbereitung, was ich sehr gut fand. Ich werde sicher wieder einmal einen Kurs bei VOX besuchen gruss Nils
