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.
Upcoming Goethe exams
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.
Ich lerne Deutsch! I am in the A1 class, which is being paid for by my employer. Thanks to VOX Sprachschule and especially to our teacher Stefan. I'm amazed by how much we have learned in just 6 weeks.
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.
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 a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
(Translated by Google) I attended a test preparation course with VOX at Tatiana. The course was super structured and well organized. I was able to learn a lot in a short time. The teacher recognized my strengths and weaknesses immediately and adapted the course content to them. I would say it's one of the best courses I've ever attended and I definitely recommend it to anyone. (Original) Ich habe bei VOX einen Prüfungsvorbereitungs-Kurs bei Tatiana besucht. Der Kurs war super strukturiert und gut organisiert. Ich konnte in kurzer Zeit sehr viel lernen. Die Lehrerin erkannte meine Stärken und Schwächen sofort und passte die Kursinhalte auch an diese an. Ich würde sagen, es ist einer der besten Kurse, den ich bisher besucht habe und ich kann die Schule auf jeden Fall jedem empfehlen.
I took some swiss-german courses with Silvan per Zoom. It was perfect, efficient, well organised. This school has very friendly teachers. Recommanded.
(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) A modern, "crisp", dynamic, flexible and very likable school, where teaching and working with the behind-the-scenes teams is great fun! A great job that I can definitely recommend (Original) Eine moderne, "knackige", dynamische, flexible und sehr sympathische Schule, an der das Unterrichten und die Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams hinter den Kulissen enormen Spass macht! Ein toller Arbeitsplatz, den ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen kann
I had the pleasure of attending both a group course and individual private lesson with Vox Sprache. In both cases, I had the opportunity to practise and improve my speaking skills. There is difference between learning theory and actually articulating the language. I like to share that my private lessons with Isabelle have been such a positive experience. She prepared and tailored the lessons specifically for my needs. She was consistently attentive to help me improve my language skills. As a result of this experience, I feel more comfortable communicating with native speakers and better prepared for my B1 mündlichen Prüfung. Thank you Isabelle for not only teaching me but also motivating me throughout the course. Your passion for teaching is filter through in every lesson. Thank you.
I'm currently learning German faster than I thought possible. I'm very impressed with Mr. Botchkarev's method, very systematic and oriented towards practical application.
(Translated by Google) academically trained teachers, pleasant classroom climate, a little thin walls in the building. I can only recommend the school :) (Original) akademisch ausgebildete Lehrer, angenehmes Unterrichtsklima, ein wenig dünne Wände im Gebäude. Die Schule kann ich nur empfehlen :)
