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.

The methodology, which is based on speaking, is very successful in the learning process. I took two levels of German at this School and I noticed quick progress. During this time I had 5 teachers and all of them were amazing!! their explanations were very clear and thanks to them, it was easier to improve my German.
I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.

Great teachers, flexible schedule, convenient location - I enjoyed my German B2 and C1 classes I had with VOX.
(Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the English course with Cedric. The course location was ideal, the course book I found very interesting and helpful. Thanks also for the good discussions and for the flexibility. A great school! (Original) Der Englischkurs mit Cedric hat mir sehr gefallen. Der Kursort war ideal, das Kursbuch fand ich sehr interessant und hilfreich. Danke auch für die guten Gespräche und für die Flexibilität. Eine tolle Schule!
Great opportunity to practice speaking and listening skills with the group and teacher. Flexible online approach with mature technology made lessons during lockdown possible. Review materials are shared promptly in pdf after each lesson. I also like that Isabelle inspired us to learn from multiple angles including reading a book together and watching YouTube videos in between lessons.
I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
I was taking individual classes and I had good teacher during the training. More focus on practical learning vs. overkill with grammar.
