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) I can only agree with the positive reviews. Everything is going perfectly, from the first contact to the class. I am currently doing a Swiss German course. My teacher Silvan studied languages and addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the student. He pays great attention to little things. The lessons are relaxed and a lot of fun. After six weeks I made good progress which motivates me further. I can fully recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Kann mich den positiven Bewertungen nur anschliessen. Es läuft alles perfekt, vom Erstkontakt bis zum Unterricht. Ich mache gerade einen Schweizerdeutschkurs. Mein Lehrer Silvan hat Sprachen studiert und geht auf die Stärken und Schwächen des Schülers ein. Er achtet sehr auf Kleinigkeiten. Der Unterricht ist locker und macht echt viel Spass. Nach sechs Wochen habe ich schon gute Fortschritte gemacht die mich weiter motivieren. Ich kann die VOX Sprachschule uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
I came to this school with 0 knowledge of German. I was very nervous at the beginning but the teachers at this school are so welcoming and really make you feel at ease. I especially find Christina's teaching approach really great and feel Ive learnt so much in her classes (both private and joint classes). I couldn't recommend this school enough!
Einfach Top. Wir lernen in kleinen Gruppen und werden bestens versorgt. Volle Empfehlung 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
(Translated by Google) I wholeheartedly recommend this school. I have been teaching at Vox for 2 years now and I think the whole team works with great commitment. We always try to find solutions for language learners and teachers, without fear of going our own way as a language school and inventing and offering new models. I enjoy working here! (Original) Ich empfehle diese Schule von ganzem Herzen. Bereits 2 Jahre unterrichte ich jetzt bei Vox und finde, dass das ganze Team mit grossem Einsatz arbeitet. Es wird immer versucht, Lösungen für die Sprachlernenden sowie für die Lehrenden zu finden, ohne Angst, als Sprachschule einen eigenen Weg zu gehen und neue Modelle zu erfinden und anzubieten. Mir macht es Freude, hier mitzuwirken!
I honestly have to say I’m truly satisfied by the course you are providing. Cristina is a highly professional teacher and she really cares about our improvements. She is always at your disposal for any request and despite the limited time available she does manage to organize the lessons in order to cover both theory and practice. In addition, I think there is a perfect balancing of homework load, always with a view to the achievements of the objectives required to prepare for the A1 exam.
Tatjana is a very good teacher. I'm moving forward with every lesson I've taken. There are tangible results shown are the end of every lesson.
(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.
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.
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.
