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.

(Translated by Google) I am happy with the course. I liked the flexibility best. I hope I am close enough to my goal to pass the C1 exam. I can't think of anything spontaneously that you could have done better. Therefore: thumbs up !! (Original) Ich bin zufrieden mit dem Kurs. Am besten hat mir die Flexibilität gefallen. Ich hoffe, ich bin meinem Ziel genug nah, um die Prüfung im C1 zu bestehen. Spontan fällt mir nichts ein, was Sie hätten besser machen können. Deshalb: Daumen hoch!!
I have had an excellent experience during my B2 German course with VOX. Yana is an incredible teacher, she is really encouraging and patient and my German has improved more than I ever could have hoped! Yana made sure that every lesson was tailored towards my needs and really went above and beyond in making sure I was always getting the most out of the course and our lessons - can't thank her enough!!
As a teacher working for VOX, I could not be happier about my experience here. Teaching to single students or small groups (max five people) allows me to adapt the lessons to their goals, maximize their progress, follow them up thoroughly and establish trustworthy, effective relationships. The focus is on speaking skills, which I consider crucial to prepare the students for contexts of real communication. The team is varied, multilingual, highly motivated and supportive: the students will always find someone that can fit with their timetable and requirements. Finally, the school has a clear ambition to grow, to develop and to provide an ever-improving service. From my point of view, highly recommended for both teachers and students.
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!
I was surprised myself how fast I made progress with my language skills. Very professional teachers teach at VOX, who know their field very well.
(Translated by Google) Good school with a teacher (Marcella) who is very professional. (Original) Bonne école avec un professeur (Marcella) qui est très professionnel.
(Translated by Google) An excellent place to learn, very friendly and professional people who give you all the necessary support, a very good option without a doubt! (Original) Un lugar excelente para aprender, personas muy amables y profesionales que te brindan todo el apoyo necesario, una muy buena opción sin duda alguna!
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) relaxed and informal atmosphere, very good quality teacher, small class for optimal learning effect. I'm looking forward to the next lesson. We recommend! (Original) entspannte und ungezwungene Atmosphäre, qualitativ sehr gute Lehrerin, kleine Klasse für optimalen Lerneffekt. Ich freue mich schon auf die nächste Lektion. Sehr zu empfehlen!
(Translated by Google) I am currently attending a business English course, as well as individual lessons. flexible, uncomplicated, solution-oriented!

The teachers know how to motivate and are technically top! (Original) Ich besuche zur Zeit einen Business-Englischkurs, ebenso parallel dazu Einzellektionen. flexibel, unkompliziert, lösungsorientiert! Anmeldung mit Wunschterminen möglich, was mich auch zu VOX gebracht hat. Gruppenkurse mit max. 5 Teilnehmern sorgen für schnelles Weiterkommen. Ebenfalls kann ich Privatlektionen weiterempfehlen.
