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.

Probably, the best language school in Zurich. I'm happy to share, that I passed my CAE with a C1 level! With Tatiana we have improved my English knowledge from B1 to C1 in 9 months. Great teacher and a great place. Highly recommend!
(Translated by Google) Good school with a teacher (Marcella) who is very professional. (Original) Bonne école avec un professeur (Marcella) qui est très professionnel.
(Translated by Google) I am very happy with my teacher Agnieszka. After each lesson, I notice that I am learning a lot because she does it very well. So my feeling is that the school works with very successful, professional teachers. I recommend the VOX school to anyone who wants to learn a foreign language. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meiner Lehrerin Agnieszka. Nach jedem Unterricht merke ich, dass ich viel lerne weil sie das ganze einfach sehr gut macht. Deshalb ist mein Gefühl, dass die Schule mit sehr erfolgreichen, professionellen Lehrern arbeitet. Ich empfehle die Schule VOX jeden, der eine Fremdsprache lernen möchte.
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!
I am very happy with Cristina’s courses, she is always very dynamic, always pays attention to both our grammar and pronunciation, and makes all of us practice speaking.
VOX Sprachschule and their teachers (shout out to Priska who has been my tutor) have always ensured that the courses I have taken were tailored to my needs, with focus on the areas that were most important to me, and always at times that suit me well. This has helped my German and Swiss German language skills tremendously.
(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 really appreciated to learn at Vox-Sprachschule. Learning in small groups is far more efficient and motivating compared to big groups where the levels of the students are too differents. The organisation was very flexible and fund great solutions to fit both mine and the school interests. They were very reactive against corona situation. I really recommend this school and my great teachers Cedric and Kristina.
Very personal service, good organization and high quality of the lessons, even if they were taught online. We covered a whole level within one course and I noticed the difference right away in real life conversations!!! Within a few weeks I was able to refresh all the knowledge I already had and actively build on this, which is exactly what my goal was! The lessons were in a small group, which is very nice as you meet new people and can practice together, but the group is still small enough to get personal attention. There is a very good balance between speaking, grammar and vocabulary in every lesson. As part of the course you get a book that is okay (I would like some more grammar explanation in the book, it is mostly exercises), however there are a lot of good exercises that we were not able to cover all during the course, which allows you to keep practicing even after the course. What I appreciated most is the tips from the teacher about common phrases and swiss terms, that only a native speaker can tell you and you definitelly do not get through platforms like DuoLingo that I was using before! All with all definitely very happy I joined the course :)
My experience with VOX has been incredible. I would recommend you for sure. Michael was extremely good, patient and always came prepared. If I did not understood something, he would take his time and explain again (and sometimes again) without any impatience. Thank you very much for the well planned itenarary and accommodating me in the Corona...🤔..... Times
Great opportunity to practice speaking and listening skills with the group and teacher. Flexible online approach with mature technology made lessons during lockdown possible. Review materials are shared promptly in pdf after each lesson. I also like that Isabelle inspired us to learn from multiple angles including reading a book together and watching YouTube videos in between lessons.
Really excellent teaching method and class size makea this a great school. Teachers of top quality. Supplies for students such bottled mineral water is free. Great managers and staff which are very helpful with issues. Highly recommended.
