In the B2 course at VOX you will work towards the goal of expanding your competence for active and independent speaking, because at level B2 all the grammar required for speaking freely will be completed and the vocabulary will be massively expanded. If you still have gaps or uncertainties in the free use of language, we polish the following topics until they fit perfectly: sentence order, declension of nouns, declension of adjectives, verb conjugations, Konjunktiv II, passive, tenses and prepositions.

Whether you need to pass the Goethe-Zertifikat B2 for your career, to attend a German-speaking university, for a residency permit or whether you just want to set yourself a challenge, we will help you succeed.
Our very small class sizes of 3-5 people ensure that your teacher will be able to give you direct feedback on your progress and help you to brush up on any necessary grammar and vocabulary to fill any gaps in your German knowledge. Your teacher will help you to significantly expand your vocabulary and you will learn to express yourself in a more nuanced way through discussion of a wide range of topics. You will also gain a better grasp of formal German suitable for university and the workplace.
Along with improving your German, you also need to be intricately familiar with the exam format. This course will cover each exam section in detail and your teacher will help you develop strategies for each part to allow you to answer questions efficiently, accurately and with confidence.

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.

(Translated by Google) The organization regarding course determination as well as communication and administration was flawless. I really enjoyed the French course with Olga, she always responded very well to me, which enabled me to achieve my personal learning goals. (Original) Die Organisation bezüglich Kursfindung sowie Kommunikation und Administration war einwandfrei. Der Französischkurs mit Olga hat mir viel Spass gemacht, sie ist immer sehr gut auf mich eingegangen, wodurch ich meine persönlichen Lernziele erreicht habe.
Being a teacher at VOX is a very rich and joyful experience. The VOX method allows the students to get to meet a language from one of the most important sides of it – speaking. Back in the days, when I was learning English and French, a method such as the VOX-method would have helped me a lot and I would have loved to get to know it earlier. VOX provides a learning atmosphere that gives the students a chance to learn a language with a lot of motivation. One of the many advantages is also that the school is located right next to the train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
Larissa was great. Patient and explained grammar concepts very well :)
(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.
I enjoy all of my German lessons and I feel like I am advancing quite fast! The teacher, Maxi, is excellent. He is very thorough and has a vast knowledge of linguistics. I can only recommend VOX-Sprachschule Zürich!
(Translated by Google) I really liked the course. Our teacher Leah has been very responsive to our goals and needs and has managed to bring them under one roof. I made the greatest progress in speaking. The many conversations during the lessons have enabled me to speak a lot more fluently and has expanded my active vocabulary. With Leah we often looked at the origin of the word, the exact meaning and the “area of use” of new vocabulary, which made it a lot easier for me to remember and understand them. Leah's attentive and personable way of teaching suited me very well. I would go back to class with her in a heartbeat. Nothing comes to my mind spontaneously that could have been done better, except maybe that we only received the books in the middle of the course, which firstly wasn't your fault and secondly didn't bother me at all. Leah managed it great :) (Original) Der Kurs hat mir richtig gut gefallen. Unsere Lehrerin Leah ist super auf unsere Ziele und Bedürfnisse eingegangen und hat es geschafft diese unter einen Hut zu bringen. Den grössten Fortschritt habe ich beim Sprechen gemacht. Die vielen Unterhaltungen während den Lektionen haben es mir ermöglicht nun einiges fliessender sprechen zu können und hat meinen aktiven Wortschatz erweitert. Wir haben mit Leah oft die Wortherkunft, die genaue Bedeutung und den „Verwendungsbereich“ von neuen Vokabeln angeschaut, was es mir enorm erleichtert hat mir diese zu merken und zu verstehen. Leahs aufmerksame und sympathische Art zu unterrichten hat sehr gut zu mir gepasst. Ich würde sofort wieder zu ihr in den Unterricht gehen. Gerade spontan kommt mir nichts in den Sinn, das man hätte besser machen können, ausser vielleicht dass wir die Bücher erst Mitte des Kurses erhalten haben, was erstens nicht euer Fehler war und zweitens gar nicht so gestört hat. Leah hat das super gemanagt :)
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.
