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 have a pleasure to be a student of Isabelle and it’s the best language learning experience I have ever got. Professionalism, passion, friendliness, openness, effectiveness! I highly recommend!
Currently studying Deutsch-A1 in this school. There is focus on speaking,which helps you to learn fast, groups are small, which means focus on everyone and there is attention to student's specific language needs. No experience of other schools and classes but i like what i am getting and learning.
(Translated by Google) A modern, "crisp", dynamic, flexible and very likable school, where teaching and working with the behind-the-scenes teams is great fun! A great job that I can definitely recommend. (Original) Eine moderne, "knackige", dynamische, flexible und sehr sympathische Schule, an der das Unterrichten und die Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams hinter den Kulissen enormen Spass macht! Ein toller Arbeitsplatz, den ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen kann.
(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.

Die Lehrerinnen und Lehrer verstehen es zu motivieren und sind fachlich top!
The course is going very well, Olga is a great teacher. I'm generally quite happy with the online option, although I prefer face to face. Olga adapts to my needs, corrects my errors spotting. She does her job well and I am making progress.
Great teacher and very helpful staff
After a few courses at VOX, studying German, I can only recommend it for: 1) the quality / professionalism of the teaching (always prepared, hand-outs if necessary, follow-ups over email if a class is missed and topics / words / concepts promptly addressed the following lessons); 2) flexibility of the teaching and administration; 3) small class size (one of my main selection criteria) which allows for a good practice / feedback for all students; 4) convenient location close to HB (which was a big plus when you are trying to strike a balance with work and other chores). Both teachers I had so far (Coralie and Larissa) were extremely helpful, accurate and kind and helped me moved towards my goals.
(Translated by Google) Very good online course The French course A1 super intensive at Sébastien Pruvost in January 2021. I learned a lot, very good structure of the course and good preparation from Sébastien. I'm really excited about the progress I've made in the short time. The entire A1 level in one month. Top. (Original) Sehr guter online Kurs Der Französisch Kurs A1 superintensiv bei Sébastien Pruvost im Januar 2021. Ich habe sehr viel gelernt sehr guter Aufbau des Kurses und gute Vorbereitung von Sébastien. Bin wirklich begeistert vom Fortschritt den ich gemacht habe in der kurzen Zeit. Das ganze Niveau A1 in einem Monat. Top.
(Translated by Google) I really liked the course. Our teacher Leah has been very responsive to our goals and needs and has managed to bring them under one roof. I made the greatest progress in speaking. The many conversations during the lessons have enabled me to speak a lot more fluently and has expanded my active vocabulary. With Leah we often looked at the origin of the word, the exact meaning and the “area of use” of new vocabulary, which made it a lot easier for me to remember and understand them. Leah's attentive and personable way of teaching suited me very well. I would go back to class with her in a heartbeat. Nothing comes to my mind spontaneously that could have been done better, except maybe that we only received the books in the middle of the course, which firstly wasn't your fault and secondly didn't bother me at all. Leah managed it great :) (Original) Der Kurs hat mir richtig gut gefallen. Unsere Lehrerin Leah ist super auf unsere Ziele und Bedürfnisse eingegangen und hat es geschafft diese unter einen Hut zu bringen. Den grössten Fortschritt habe ich beim Sprechen gemacht. Die vielen Unterhaltungen während den Lektionen haben es mir ermöglicht nun einiges fliessender sprechen zu können und hat meinen aktiven Wortschatz erweitert. Wir haben mit Leah oft die Wortherkunft, die genaue Bedeutung und den „Verwendungsbereich“ von neuen Vokabeln angeschaut, was es mir enorm erleichtert hat mir diese zu merken und zu verstehen. Leahs aufmerksame und sympathische Art zu unterrichten hat sehr gut zu mir gepasst. Ich würde sofort wieder zu ihr in den Unterricht gehen. Gerade spontan kommt mir nichts in den Sinn, das man hätte besser machen können, ausser vielleicht dass wir die Bücher erst Mitte des Kurses erhalten haben, was erstens nicht euer Fehler war und zweitens gar nicht so gestört hat. Leah hat das super gemanagt :)
I had online German course B2 level . There were only 3 people in our class, so I had a lot more chance to talk in German. My teacher Isabel was very professional and friendly, I would definitely recommend her for the lesson. She always gave us the homeworks and sent us back correted answer quickly which helped me a lot as well. It costs quite a lot, but as there are not many students in a class, so it was worth it. Unfortunately, there was no administrations office in Winterthur branch, so it seems all enquries are done only with email or the telephone. But Administrative person calling me back in a short time.
I was taking a C2 English course at the VOX language school to prepare for a Toefl exam. The school is located in the heart of the city right on Central square. After my request for a C2 level course, I was quickly given a recommendation about who would be the best teacher for me. I was being introduced to Tatiana who is a great teacher and she helped me out in any way I needed her. I didn’t have much time for my exam preparation, but Tatiana made sure we covered everything for the exam just in time. All in all, I would highly recommend studying at VOX language school and would definitely join again if I wanted to improve or learn another language!
I really appreciated to learn at Vox-Sprachschule. Learning in small groups is far more efficient and motivating compared to big groups where the levels of the students are too differents. The organisation was very flexible and fund great solutions to fit both mine and the school interests. They were very reactive against corona situation. I really recommend this school and my great teachers Cedric and Kristina.
