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 am currently learning Norwegian and I have to say this school is the best. My teacher, Kirsten, has a lot of patience and she explains everything good and clear. I am satisfied with the course ( couldn’t be better organised - full flexibility ). I would definitely recommend it.
I’m so glad that I found Vox Sprachschule! I strongly recommend this school.
(Translated by Google) I attended the German course B2 in Winterthur and I really liked it. Although the course is expensive, it is also efficient. The teaching method is suitable for each student and really contributes to the progress in the language. The teachers are competent and interested. (Original) Ich habe den Deutschkurs B2 in Winterthur besucht und es hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Obwohl der Kurs teuer ist, ist er auch effizient. Die Unterrichtsmethode ist für jeden Schüler geeignet und trägt wirklich zum Fortschritt in der Sprache bei. Die Lehrer sind kompetent und interessiert.
I am currently taking German A1 with VOX-Sprachschule and have been very happy with their concept. The small group size and the skillful teacher have made it easy to reach the goals set, and I signed up for the next level without hesitation. Importantly, I travel a lot in my work and have therefore had to miss out on a number of classes, but this has never been an issue. The teacher has kindly provided me with homework for the lessons missed, so that I have had no problems keeping up with the other students. Also from the admin side everything has been very streamlined. All in all, I warmly recommend this language school.
I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
I am very satisfied with my lessons with Isabel. She is a pedagogue and professional teacher. She listened to my needs and adapted the exercises accordingly. We put a focus on oral expression and acquisition of vocabulary. We also worked on important grammar aspects and written expression. I confirm that I have learned things and improved my level thanks to Isabel's teaching. She is skilled and able to adapt precisely to the needs. Please, congratulate her on my behalf. I also congratulate you and your institution for your seriousness.
The best of its kind in Zürich - if not Switzerland! Amazing staff.
The schools is very accommodating of my schedule and preferences. Overall it has been a great experience. I am very happy with my classes with Natalie. She strikes the right balance between grammar and speaking practice. She takes my feedback into consideration and I very much enjoy the learning experience. She is an excellent teacher, patient, knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. She makes learning fun and is definitely one of my all-time favorite teachers! I always look forward to my German classes.
It is a nice language school. Teachers are professional and care students and their needs. The program is well planned as a student’s level. One of my friends strongly recommended me here and I will do as well. I am improving a lot here.
(Translated by Google) Very satisfied! Thank you! Gladly again (Original) Sehr zufrieden! Danke! Gerne wieder
(Translated by Google) I can only agree with the positive reviews. Everything is going perfectly, from the first contact to the class. I am currently doing a Swiss German course. My teacher Silvan studied languages and addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the student. He pays great attention to little things. The lessons are relaxed and a lot of fun. After six weeks I made good progress which motivates me further. I can fully recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Kann mich den positiven Bewertungen nur anschliessen. Es läuft alles perfekt, vom Erstkontakt bis zum Unterricht. Ich mache gerade einen Schweizerdeutschkurs. Mein Lehrer Silvan hat Sprachen studiert und geht auf die Stärken und Schwächen des Schülers ein. Er achtet sehr auf Kleinigkeiten. Der Unterricht ist locker und macht echt viel Spass. Nach sechs Wochen habe ich schon gute Fortschritte gemacht die mich weiter motivieren. Ich kann die VOX Sprachschule uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
