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.

Very personal service, good organization and high quality of the lessons, even if they were taught online. We covered a whole level within one course and I noticed the difference right away in real life conversations!!! Within a few weeks I was able to refresh all the knowledge I already had and actively build on this, which is exactly what my goal was! The lessons were in a small group, which is very nice as you meet new people and can practice together, but the group is still small enough to get personal attention. There is a very good balance between speaking, grammar and vocabulary in every lesson. As part of the course you get a book that is okay (I would like some more grammar explanation in the book, it is mostly exercises), however there are a lot of good exercises that we were not able to cover all during the course, which allows you to keep practicing even after the course. What I appreciated most is the tips from the teacher about common phrases and swiss terms, that only a native speaker can tell you and you definitelly do not get through platforms like DuoLingo that I was using before! All with all definitely very happy I joined the course :)
(Translated by Google) A unique school where teaching is fun! I particularly appreciate the focus on speaking and small classes. This is where every student gets his word. I'm happy to be part of the Vox team. (Original) Eine einzigartige Schule, an der das Unterrichten Spass macht! Ganz besonders schätze ich den Fokus auf das Sprechen und die kleinen Klassen. Hier kommt wirklich jeder Schüler zu Wort. Ich freue mich, dass ich Teil des Vox-Teams sein darf.
(Translated by Google) I am being taught by Tatiana. I'm super satisfied and couldn't imagine a better lecturer. She explains it to me great, has a lot of patience and supports me. Thank you very much. (Original) Ich werde von Tatiana unterrichtet. Bin super zufrieden und könnte mir keine bessere Dozentin vorstellen. Sie erklärt es mir super, hat viel Geduld und fördert mich. Vielen Dank.
(Translated by Google) Last autumn I took private lessons in French for several weeks and was very satisfied with the support and preparation of the language teacher. We made the course very dynamic and focused on speaking. On the one hand, he recognized individual weaknesses and placed the learning focus on them, and on the other hand, he was always able to answer spontaneous questions about the French language confidently and well. I can definitely recommend the language school without reservation! (Original) Im letzten Herbst habe ich über mehrere Wochen Privatstunden in Französisch besucht und war mit der Betreuung und Vorbereitungs des Sprachlehrers sehr zufrieden. Wir haben den Kurs sehr dynamisch ausgestaltet und den Fokus aufs Sprechen gelegt. Dabei hat er einerseits individuelle Schwächen erkannt und darauf den Lernfokus gelegt und andererseits konnte er immer wieder auftauchende Spontanfragen zur französischen Sprache stets souverän und gut beantworten. Kann die Sprachschule auf jeden Fall uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!
I think I achieved my goals by doing a course with Felicity. I learned something new about learning as well, which I can apply in every studying subject. That's why I can recommend this course to everyone who learns German. The studying materials and school facilities are also of highest quality. Thank you ones more for your team work!
Perfect location and very good teachers. I am 11 Months with VOX now
(Translated by Google) I am very happy with VOX school. I had my lessons with Kristina. After teaching her, I received the Goethe-Zertifikat C1. I can recommend Kristina for everyone. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit VOX-Schule. Ich habe mein Unterricht mit Kristina gehabt. Nach dem Unterricht bei ihr erhielt ich das Goethe-Zertifikat C1. Ich kann Kristina für jeden empfehlen.
Great school and a fantastic service! A+
I learnt Russian with Vox-Sprachschule. Currently I learn German and Arabic with them. They have very professional teachers, and individual flexible approach to students. I'd especially like to recommend Mr Botchkarev as a teacher to people who think they are bad at learning languages. Mr. Botchkarev will not only teach you the language, but also will learn you how to learn languages.
Very effective teaching methodology! If you really want to learn, you will learn fast!!!
Great experience. Followed the B1 German course during Corona time and I am impressed by the flexibility of the school and the teacher Priska. The general quality of the course is very good and very personal. Priska is a great teacher - and will definitely recommend her and Vox schule! Thanks! Pieter Laban
