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.

(Translated by Google) Very happy with the classes at VOX Sprachschule. Nice and professional teacher. Course in small groups. I recommend. (Original) Très content des cours effectués auprès de VOX Sprachschule. Professeure sympa et professionnelle. Cours en petits groupes. Je recommande.
VOX is not only a different school for people who want to learn a new language, but for teachers as well! Small groups, tailored courses and a focus on speaking provied a unique experience for everyone. I'm honoured to be part of the team!
I am currently doing a B2 German course with 3 other students online. All the other courses I have done in other schools have been in much larger groups. I feel that the course is more tailored to us as individuals and I’m learning more as a result. Agi is an excellent teacher! She explains everything clearly, allows us to practise and corrects our mistakes without destroying confidence. This has been perfect for me as a refresher course but you would have to be motivated to do extra homework if everything were new as the speed is quite fast. I am finally getting to grips with cases and am slowly learning to speak with fewer grammatical errors. I would highly recommend Vox to those who want to learn quickly and want to improve their speaking ability.
Great location and very professional and motivated teachers. Have been going there for a year now and can totally recommend it!
Language learning at Vox has been a great experience. They are very flexible and responsive and always tried to tailor lessons to fit and grow my actual abilities.
(Translated by Google) Top instruction, friendly colleagues, exciting tasks (Original) Top Unterrichtungen, sympatische Kollegen, spannende Aufgaben
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!
Very effective teaching methodology! If you really want to learn, you will learn fast!!!
I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
(Translated by Google) relaxed and informal atmosphere, very good quality teacher, small class for optimal learning effect. I'm looking forward to the next lesson. We recommend! (Original) entspannte und ungezwungene Atmosphäre, qualitativ sehr gute Lehrerin, kleine Klasse für optimalen Lerneffekt. Ich freue mich schon auf die nächste Lektion. Sehr zu empfehlen!
(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!
I took some swiss-german courses with Silvan per Zoom. It was perfect, efficient, well organised. This school has very friendly teachers. Recommanded.
