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.

I had the pleasure of attending both a group course and individual private lesson with Vox Sprache. In both cases, I had the opportunity to practise and improve my speaking skills. There is difference between learning theory and actually articulating the language. I like to share that my private lessons with Isabelle have been such a positive experience. She prepared and tailored the lessons specifically for my needs. She was consistently attentive to help me improve my language skills. As a result of this experience, I feel more comfortable communicating with native speakers and better prepared for my B1 mündlichen Prüfung. Thank you Isabelle for not only teaching me but also motivating me throughout the course. Your passion for teaching is filter through in every lesson. Thank you.
I have had an excellent experience during my B2 German course with VOX. Yana is an incredible teacher, she is really encouraging and patient and my German has improved more than I ever could have hoped! Yana made sure that every lesson was tailored towards my needs and really went above and beyond in making sure I was always getting the most out of the course and our lessons - can't thank her enough!!
(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.
I have taken two classes with Isabel - b1 and b2 German and i have been very happy with both. She’s an excellent and compassionate teacher. I like the emphasis on communication - reading, writing and speaking. I like the online format, and the teaching materials. I‘ve learned a lot and will consider a Vox class when I continue.
I'm currently learning German faster than I thought possible. I'm very impressed with Mr. Botchkarev's method, very systematic and oriented towards practical application.
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.
I've worked for VOX for more than two years now. The best thing, among others, is probably a highly motivated team. Every single person here works hard and always tries to improve, including the back office, teachers and the owners of the school who work so hard themselves to offer high quality and well organized courses with personal care. Challenging and live working environment. Highly recommend!
I have a pleasure to be a student of Isabelle and it’s the best language learning experience I have ever got. Professionalism, passion, friendliness, openness, effectiveness! I highly recommend!
(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.
Great teacher and very helpful staff
(Translated by Google) I had a private course in French to prepare for my bilingual studies. My teacher Alex was very friendly, competent and motivating! Due to the change of residence, the course time was unfortunately limited to 8 weeks - otherwise I would have liked to continue! (Original) Ich hatte einen Individualkurs in Französisch, um mich optimal für mein zweisprachiges Studium vorzubereiten. Mein Lehrer Alex war sehr freundlich, kompetent und motivierend! Durch den Wohnortwechsel war die Kurszeit leider auf 8 Wochen beschränkt - sonst hätte ich gerne weitergemacht!
Here is my honest review of VOX Sprachschule Winterthur: I have taken two courses (B1 and B2 German) with Vox and I have had a very positive experience so far. I have recommended Vox to a close friend of mine as well. My teachers at Vox were some of the best I’ve had. Each lesson plan is organised, the class sizes are small, and the teachers are highly educated. I am currently taking B2 German with Daniel M. The lessons are organised and structured letting you know which concepts are covered. This makes it easy to look back and practice on your own. My teacher does a great job breaking down German grammar principles into simple components and explaining the rules involved in sentence structure and conversation. My language acquisition is quicker and easier thanks to this method of teaching. He pays extra attention to making sure your pronunciation is correct when speaking. This has improved my communication skills greatly. The reading, writing, and conversational exercises are very helpful. Overall this course continues to give me the tools to become fluent in German. I have previously taken B1 with VOX as well, and I was also impressed with my former teacher, Alys B.-C. We learned in a structured yet stress-free manner. It was easy to speak to my other classmates online. I appreciated the instructor's detailed notes, conversation, handouts, and written exercises. I would definitely take another Vox class again. It is worth the price. The teachers are supportive and you can e-mail them outside of class time. The school is flexible so working and learning is not a problem. The staff checks in with you to make sure your feedback about your class is taken into consideration. My understanding of German has vastly improved. My ability to read, write, and speak are much better than before. Overall Vox Sprachschule Winterthur gets a 5/5 for me.
