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.

Great teachers, flexible schedule, convenient location - I enjoyed my German B2 and C1 classes I had with VOX.
Nathalie Nüssli is a wonderful teacher and we were very fortunate to have a great group. I learnt so much more than I would have on my own.
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 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!!

This is an amazing experience ☺ I participated in german B2 and now on C1 level. My teacher, Priska, is very good at understanding individual strengths and needs and adapts the lesson accordingly, no matter if in a group or private lesson context. The tempo is intense with homework in between the lessons. The upside is the great progress that you feel which comes in a short period of time. The school is so great that it makes me want to continue studying more languages once I'm happy with my German ☺
(Translated by Google) I am currently attending a business English course, as well as individual lessons. flexible, uncomplicated, solution-oriented! Registration with desired dates possible, which also brought me to VOX. Group courses with max. 5 participants ensure quick progress. I can also recommend private lessons. 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. Die Lehrerinnen und Lehrer verstehen es zu motivieren und sind fachlich top!
Vox school is in the complex well organized and offers both private lessons and small-group lessons. I liked also the possibility to attend the course online, that makes it even more flexible and gives you the possibility to attend the course from anywhere. I think that one of the advantages of the school is that the teachers are very well prepared. I am enjoying my German course with Larissa, she is very professional and she has very good teaching skills. I also appreciate that she prepares the class in advance and that she always prepare for me a summary of each lesson, that is very helpful for the learning process. Because of my experience, I strongly recommend Vox school.
For me Andreas Freihoff is a very professional guy. His class is very interesting and he shares with us important things. I have already learned a lot. I would recommend him to every other person.
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
It has been an excellent experience working with Cedric and Coralie. I have progressed fast and have had excellent support. I highly recommend VOX and its courses - the best in town. I find the entire set up very professional, excellent quality and highly customer focus.
