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.

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.
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.
I think I achieved my goals by doing a course with Felicity. I learned something new about learning as well, which I can apply in every studying subject. That's why I can recommend this course to everyone who learns German. The studying materials and school facilities are also of highest quality. Thank you ones more for your team work!
Me and my wife took 5 different classes at VOX and we are 100% satisfied with the level of attention and quality of instructions we have recieved during our courses. Both German (A1, A2) and English (C1) classes helped us in ramping up our language skills.
Great location and very professional and motivated teachers. Have been going there for a year now and can totally recommend it!
(Translated by Google) I can only agree with the positive reviews. Everything is going perfectly, from the first contact to the class. I am currently doing a Swiss German course. My teacher Silvan studied languages and addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the student. He pays great attention to little things. The lessons are relaxed and a lot of fun. After six weeks I made good progress which motivates me further. I can fully recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Kann mich den positiven Bewertungen nur anschliessen. Es läuft alles perfekt, vom Erstkontakt bis zum Unterricht. Ich mache gerade einen Schweizerdeutschkurs. Mein Lehrer Silvan hat Sprachen studiert und geht auf die Stärken und Schwächen des Schülers ein. Er achtet sehr auf Kleinigkeiten. Der Unterricht ist locker und macht echt viel Spass. Nach sechs Wochen habe ich schon gute Fortschritte gemacht die mich weiter motivieren. Ich kann die VOX Sprachschule uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
Learned a lot and my teacher is patience and helpful.
(Translated by Google) Within a very short time I learned the basics of the Spanish language at the VOX and had a lot of fun! My teacher has adapted the approach and content to my needs, which makes it easier to get started in a new language and keeps your interest and motivation high. The school also scores with a very central location and high flexibility in the organization of appointments - overall I am very satisfied :) (Original) Innerhalb von sehr kurzer Zeit lernte ich an der VOX die Grundzüge der spanischen Sprache und hatte dabei eine ganze Menge Spass! Meine Lehrerin hat die Vorgehensweise und Inhalte stark auf meine Bedürfnisse angepasst, was den Einstieg in eine neue Sprache einerseits erleichtert und das Interesse & Motivation hoch hält. Die Schule punktet zudem mit einem sehr zentralen Standort und hoher Flexibilität bei der Organisation der Termine - insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden :)
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.
Probably, the best language school in Zurich. I'm happy to share, that I passed my CAE with a C1 level! With Tatiana we have improved my English knowledge from B1 to C1 in 9 months. Great teacher and a great place. Highly recommend!
Super teacher for Swiss German - Silvan Plattner. Highly flexible regarding scheduling, fun lessons, overall very good value and IMO very good improvement of my Swiss German.
I have taken two classes with Isabel - b1 and b2 German and i have been very happy with both. She’s an excellent and compassionate teacher. I like the emphasis on communication - reading, writing and speaking. I like the online format, and the teaching materials. I‘ve learned a lot and will consider a Vox class when I continue.
