The C1 level is already about the complexity of language use. The vocabulary will be massively expanded again and we will work on the ability to deal with complex communicative context in any situation of your life. If you still have gaps or uncertainties from previous levels, we will of course help you to close them in an effective and fun way.

Our Goethe-Zertifikat C1 exam preparation course is ideal if you need to improve your German for work or in order to study in German. If you have already successfully completed B2, we would love to help you get ready for the Goethe C1 exam.
There are two main components to passing a language exam: having the right language level and being familiar with the exam format. During this course, your teacher will assist you on both fronts. You will become acquainted with every section of the exam while using exam-specific materials while also improving your language skills.
Our class sizes are very small (3-5 participants), which ensures that you teacher is able to adapt the class to your requirements. You will learn to express yourself more fluently in professional and social situations and work on developing your formal writing skills to help you at university or at work. By the end of the class you will be able to sit your exam with confidence knowing that you have prepared well.

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
Best language school in Zurich. My English and German course was exactly tailored to my needs. Cristina and Tatiana are really great teachers!
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.
I took B1 course and the atmosphere was really good and our teacher was very kind. I enjoyed this class very much. Small group worked very good to me.
(Translated by Google) I really like the Swiss German course at Vox with Nataly. The usual dull memorization and editing of tasks to textbook is completely eliminated. Rather, emphasis is placed on the daily application and as Nataly pays much attention to the pronunciation and binds according to individual difficulties appropriate teaching materials and exercise variants. It is a class that is fun and where I feel well cared for. I gladly recommend the Vox language school. (Original) Der schweizerdeutsch Kurs bei Vox mit Nataly gefällt mir sehr. Das übliche stumpfe Auswendiglernen und Bearbeiten von Aufgaben nach Lehrbuch entfällt völlig. Vielmehr wird Wert auf die tägliche Anwendung gelegt und da achtet Nataly sehr auf die Aussprache und bindet je nach individuellen Schwierigkeiten entsprechende Lehrunterlagen und Übungsvarianten ein. Es ist ein Unterricht, der Spass macht und wo ich mich gut aufgehoben fühle. Gerne empfehle ich die Vox Sprachenschule weiter.
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 :)
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.
(Translated by Google) As a teacher, teaching at VOX gives me incredible pleasure. Not only the organization is great, but also the groups that I was able to teach were very dynamic, motivated and entertaining. On the whole an excellent learning atmosphere. (Original) Als Lehrerin bereitet mir das Unterrichten bei VOX unglaubliche Freude. Nicht nur die Organisation ist top, sondern auch die Gruppen, welche ich unterrichten durfte, waren sehr dynamisch, motiviert und unterhaltsam. Im Grossen und Ganzen eine ausgezeichnete Lernatmosphäre.
Professional service, excellent teacher! Strongly recommend
(Translated by Google) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Friendly, purposeful, reliable, serious but not too much, a creative force and with great pleasure at work. I probably booked private lessons with an optimal teacher. (Original) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Amichevole, finalizzata, affidabile, seria ma non troppo, una forza creativa e con molto piacere sul lavoro. Probabilmente ho prenotato lezioni private con una insegnante ottimale.
Please find below your text if you wish to leave it after the rating: I’m extremely happy with my classes with Solange. I feel there is a good balance between conversation and grammar, and I believe I’m improving every week. I look forward to continuing with her for the next levels. Thank you!
