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.

I did B2 German course and I absolutely recommend it. The course with Agnieszka has been amazing! Aga's teaching style is fantastic and she always manages to make learning pleasant and fun. I definitely improved my grammar skills which was what I was hoping for. One of my favorite parts is that Aga always uses examples from real life so I could implement what I had learned in the very same evening during conversations with my friends and family. That boosts motivation a lot. Plus the more 'dramatic' expressions (such as: dieser Zug ist abgefahren, hier hört der Spass auf) make it easier to remember and are fun to use afterwards. We were often asked what we would like to do more so I can't say anything was missing. I really wouldn't know how to improve the course, it was already above my expectations :)
(Translated by Google) A great school with a very pleasant atmosphere, which invites to learn and to speak. I am very happy to be part of the VOX team! (Original) Eine super Schule mit sehr angenehmer Atmosphäre, die zum Lernen und Sprechen einlädt. Ich bin sehr froh, Teil des VOX-Teams zu sein!
(Translated by Google) I am currently attending a business English course, as well as individual lessons. flexible, uncomplicated, solution-oriented! Registration with desired dates possible, which also brought me to VOX. Group courses with max. 5 participants ensure quick progress. I can also recommend private lessons. The teachers know how to motivate and are technically top! (Original) Ich besuche zur Zeit einen Business-Englischkurs, ebenso parallel dazu Einzellektionen. flexibel, unkompliziert, lösungsorientiert! Anmeldung mit Wunschterminen möglich, was mich auch zu VOX gebracht hat. Gruppenkurse mit max. 5 Teilnehmern sorgen für schnelles Weiterkommen. Ebenfalls kann ich Privatlektionen weiterempfehlen. Die Lehrerinnen und Lehrer verstehen es zu motivieren und sind fachlich top!
Great flexibility, professional teachers, smooth and pleasant admin. After searching both in CH and abroad, I decided for this school because of their personalized and flexible approach, competitive price and the lessons turned out to be at a very high standard (online private lessons for me - super efficient). Thank you!
As a teacher working for VOX, I could not be happier about my experience here. Teaching to single students or small groups (max five people) allows me to adapt the lessons to their goals, maximize their progress, follow them up thoroughly and establish trustworthy, effective relationships. The focus is on speaking skills, which I consider crucial to prepare the students for contexts of real communication. The team is varied, multilingual, highly motivated and supportive: the students will always find someone that can fit with their timetable and requirements. Finally, the school has a clear ambition to grow, to develop and to provide an ever-improving service. From my point of view, highly recommended for both teachers and students.
They are best in their profession... :) <3
I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
I could not be more happy with my French course. The instructor really knows how teach a language. The course is well structured, but the teacher also knows how to improvise when this makes sense. Even though I am a beginner, I feel like I can already practice my speaking right away during this course. The teacher is both very friendly and professional. This course not only efficiently helps me to improve my French, it also makes learning fun! A nice added advantage of Vox is that they make signing up super easy without any unnecessary admisntrative hassle.
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
(Translated by Google) I took private lessons in German at VOX Sprachschule and was able to achieve very good results in a short time. My teacher Saskia was very friendly, competent and uncomplicated. She put together an individual program for me, which addressed my weaknesses and we mainly concentrated on speaking. The location of the school is very central and the rooms have high ceilings with lots of light. So I found the atmosphere very pleasant. In summary, I can highly recommend the school if you want to get results quickly. (Original) Ich habe Privatunterricht in Deutsch bei VOX Sprachschule genommen und konnte in einer kurzen Zeit sehr gute Ergebnisse erzielen. Meine Lehrerin Saskia war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert. Sie hat für mich ein individuelles Programm zusammengestellt, welches auf meine Schwächen eingegangen ist und wir haben uns vor allem auf das Sprechen konzentriert. Die Lage der Schule ist sehr zentral und die Räume haben hohe Decken mit viel Licht. Ich fand die Atmosphäre daher sehr angenehm. Zusammenfassend kann ich die Schule sehr empfehlen, wenn man schnell Ergebnisse erzielen möchte.
