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.

(Translated by Google) I took private lessons in German at VOX Sprachschule and was able to achieve very good results in a short time. My teacher Saskia was very friendly, competent and uncomplicated. She put together an individual program for me, which addressed my weaknesses and we mainly concentrated on speaking. The location of the school is very central and the rooms have high ceilings with lots of light. So I found the atmosphere very pleasant. In summary, I can highly recommend the school if you want to get results quickly. (Original) Ich habe Privatunterricht in Deutsch bei VOX Sprachschule genommen und konnte in einer kurzen Zeit sehr gute Ergebnisse erzielen. Meine Lehrerin Saskia war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert. Sie hat für mich ein individuelles Programm zusammengestellt, welches auf meine Schwächen eingegangen ist und wir haben uns vor allem auf das Sprechen konzentriert. Die Lage der Schule ist sehr zentral und die Räume haben hohe Decken mit viel Licht. Ich fand die Atmosphäre daher sehr angenehm. Zusammenfassend kann ich die Schule sehr empfehlen, wenn man schnell Ergebnisse erzielen möchte.

(Translated by Google) I am very happy with my teacher Agnieszka. After each lesson, I notice that I am learning a lot because she does it very well. So my feeling is that the school works with very successful, professional teachers. I recommend the VOX school to anyone who wants to learn a foreign language. (Original) Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meiner Lehrerin Agnieszka. Nach jedem Unterricht merke ich, dass ich viel lerne weil sie das ganze einfach sehr gut macht. Deshalb ist mein Gefühl, dass die Schule mit sehr erfolgreichen, professionellen Lehrern arbeitet. Ich empfehle die Schule VOX jeden, der eine Fremdsprache lernen möchte.
(Translated by Google) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Friendly, purposeful, reliable, serious but not too much, a creative force and with great pleasure at work. I probably booked private lessons with an optimal teacher. (Original) Freundlich, zielgerichtet, zuverlässig, kreativ und mit Freude am Werk. Habe wohl Privatunterricht bei der optimalen Lehrerin (I) gebucht. Amichevole, finalizzata, affidabile, seria ma non troppo, una forza creativa e con molto piacere sul lavoro. Probabilmente ho prenotato lezioni private con una insegnante ottimale.
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.
This is an excellent language school. I was looking for a flexible program that could accommodate my work and travel schedule, and yet allow me to gain a working knowledge of German fairly quickly. The staff at VOX-sprachschule were incredibly cooperative and helpful. With their assistance I was able to find the right level and schedule for lessons. In my case this was private lessons via video. But am sure the group lessons are excellent as well. The teaching materials and the quality of instruction is really superb. I am especially pleased with my instructor, Isabelle Wegmüller, who is very knowledgeable, patient and fun. I am making good progress and expect to continue on with my lessons for the foreseeable future. I highly recommend this language school.
(Translated by Google) For two years now, we have been attending an English language course every two weeks for a couple of years. For some time now with a very competent and sympathetic instructor. We are sure to enjoy a special course with her. Our aim is not to reach a high level within a very short time, but we always want to take a small step further and keep the English "warm". Even previous teachers were very competent and we have always had great fun, which in our eyes is also an essential factor. We can highly recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Wir besuchen zu zweit seit ein paar Jahren alle zwei Wochen einen Englischsprachkurs. Seit geraumer Zeit jetzt bei einer äusserst kompetenten und sympathischen Kursleiterin. Wir geniessen sicher einen etwas speziellen Kurs mit ihr. Unser Ziel ist es nicht, innert kürzester Zeit einen hohen Level zu erreichen, sondern wir möchten immer einen kleinen Schritt weiter kommen und das Englisch "warm" halten. Auch vorherige Kursleiter waren sehr kompetent und es hat uns immer grossen Spass gemacht, was in unseren Augen auch ein wesentlicher Faktor ist. Wir können die VOX-Sprachschule wärmstens empfehlen.
