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 did B2 German course and I absolutely recommend it. The course with Agnieszka has been amazing! Aga's teaching style is fantastic and she always manages to make learning pleasant and fun. I definitely improved my grammar skills which was what I was hoping for. One of my favorite parts is that Aga always uses examples from real life so I could implement what I had learned in the very same evening during conversations with my friends and family. That boosts motivation a lot. Plus the more 'dramatic' expressions (such as: dieser Zug ist abgefahren, hier hört der Spass auf) make it easier to remember and are fun to use afterwards. We were often asked what we would like to do more so I can't say anything was missing. I really wouldn't know how to improve the course, it was already above my expectations :)
I have done the C1 course with the teacher named Tatiana. I would gladly recommend it. Right from the beginning she studied carefully my case and prepared a course fitting perfectly to my needs. I am quiet satisfied with the outcome.
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 train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
A convincing approach and a pleasant team! Students get to train all the linguistic skills (especially speaking) on a regular basis thanks to small group classes. As a teacher, it is really rewarding to be able to focus on the individual student‘s needs.
The school's own method used by all of its teachers focuses on pronunciation as well as on the vocabulary and grammar needed to be able to communicate within days of starting a course. This is further emphasized by the small size of the groups and the possibility of attending individual lessons, both of which allow the students' needs to be met. Working here is one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far. If you want or need to learn a language, this really is the place to go.
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
(Translated by Google) Attended private lessons at Tatiana for the preparation of the CAE test and passed it successfully (C2 level). Tatiana has given good inputs where more practice is needed, so that an efficient improvement could be determined if her tips were followed consistently. We recommend. Thanks a lot! (Original) Privatlektionen bei Tatiana für die Vorbereitung des CAE-Tests besucht und erfolgreich bestanden (C2-Level). Tatiana hat gute Inputs gegeben, wo noch vermehrt Übung nötig ist, so dass eine effiziente Verbesserung bei konsequenter Befolgung ihrer Tipps feststellbar war. Sehr zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank!
Learning language at your own pace in friendly environment. Very good teachers with excellent management. Small groups so that teachers are more focused on individuals. What else to say, im really impressed with the learning culture here.
(Translated by Google) Professional and committed teachers and a generally pleasant atmosphere. I can only recommend it! (Original) Professionelle und engatierte Lehrer*innen und allgemein eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Nur zu empfehlen!
I had a very good experience with Aida who helped me to find the right course for me, and Silvan as a fantastic teacher for private Swiss German classes on zoom! Very friendly and professional.
My experience with VOX has been incredible. I would recommend you for sure. Michael was extremely good, patient and always came prepared. If I did not understood something, he would take his time and explain again (and sometimes again) without any impatience. Thank you very much for the well planned itenarary and accommodating me in the Corona...🤔..... Times
