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.

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 :)
VOX Sprachschule and their teachers (shout out to Priska who has been my tutor) have always ensured that the courses I have taken were tailored to my needs, with focus on the areas that were most important to me, and always at times that suit me well. This has helped my German and Swiss German language skills tremendously.
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.
Great experience and amazing quality of teaching. I had the opportunity to follow A2-level lessons for German with Cristina Kaiser. I was amazed by her detailed knowledge of the Language, desire to share it, and ability to make the subject and material stimulating and interesting.
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.
(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.
Very positive experience, I could see a clear improvement of my german level after doing the A2 course. Very competent teachers and a strong focus on speaking which is the best way to fill confident in actually speaking the language. I recommend!
I'm on my second course learning German with vox and enjoying every minute of it! Had 3 different teachers so far and each of them have been super knowledgeable and bring a clear structure to the course, while also keeping an eye on the progress of the students, making sure that they are understanding the topics. Definitely recommend.
(Translated by Google) I am super happy with Tatiana's lessons and cannot give her enough laurels. She is really very knowledgeable and can always answer my, sometimes strange questions as a linguist, wonderfully. Her knowledge of phonetics is also super helpful. I have the feeling that I am making good progress and I also feel very comfortable. A + for Tatiana! (Original) Ich bin super happy mit Tatianas Unterricht und kann gar nicht genug Lorbeeren an sie verteilen. Sie ist wirklich sehr sachkundig und kann meine, wohl manchmal etwas seltsamen Fragen als Linguistin, immer auch wunderbar beantworten. Ihre Phonetik-Kenntnisse sind auch super hilfreich. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich gute Fortschritte mache und fühle mich auch sehr wohl. A+ für Tatiana!
(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.
They are best in their profession!!!
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 main train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
