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 have had a really good experience with VOX language school, I attended a B2 English course to prepare for Cambridge First. My teacher (Tatiana) did an excellent job. The classes were held in small groups, which I really liked. In addition to the homework for the course, she also gave me homework for exam preparation, which I found very good. I will definitely attend a course at VOX again one day greetings Nils (Original) Ich habe wirklich gute Erfahrung gemacht mit VOX-Sprachschule, ich besuchte einen B2 Englisch Kurs, um mich auf das Cambridge First vorzubereiten. Meine Lehrerin (Tatiana) machte einen ausgezeichneten Job. Der Unterricht fand in kleinen Gruppen statt, was mir wirklich sehr gefiel. Neben den Hausaufgaben des Kurses gab sie mir auch noch Hausaufgaben für die Prüfungsvorbereitung, was ich sehr gut fand. Ich werde sicher wieder einmal einen Kurs bei VOX besuchen gruss Nils
Locations is perfect! Teachers are very professional and just cool ;) Recommend this school in any aspect!
I honestly have to say I’m truly satisfied by the course you are providing. Cristina is a highly professional teacher and she really cares about our improvements. She is always at your disposal for any request and despite the limited time available she does manage to organize the lessons in order to cover both theory and practice. In addition, I think there is a perfect balancing of homework load, always with a view to the achievements of the objectives required to prepare for the A1 exam.
The course is going very well, Olga is a great teacher. I'm generally quite happy with the online option, although I prefer face to face. Olga adapts to my needs, corrects my errors spotting. She does her job well and I am making progress.
(Translated by Google) The VOX school is recommended, has very good, committed teachers. (Original) Die VOX Schule ist empfehlenswert, hat sehr gute, engagierte Lehrer.
I really appreciated to learn at Vox-Sprachschule. Learning in small groups is far more efficient and motivating compared to big groups where the levels of the students are too differents. The organisation was very flexible and fund great solutions to fit both mine and the school interests. They were very reactive against corona situation. I really recommend this school and my great teachers Cedric and Kristina.
I have done the C1 course with the teacher named Tatiana. I would gladly recommend it. Right from the beginning she studied carefully my case and prepared a course fitting perfectly to my needs. I am quiet satisfied with the outcome.
My experience with VOX has been incredible. I would recommend you for sure. Michael was extremely good, patient and always came prepared. If I did not understood something, he would take his time and explain again (and sometimes again) without any impatience. Thank you very much for the well planned itenarary and accommodating me in the Corona...🤔..... Times
(Translated by Google) Very satisfied! Thank you! Gladly again (Original) Sehr zufrieden! Danke! Gerne wieder
I am very happy with Cristina’s courses, she is always very dynamic, always pays attention to both our grammar and pronunciation, and makes all of us practice speaking.
Great learning experience! I recommend this school to anybody who wants to get a step forward with his/her speaking skills. Class size of 3 to 5 students allows you to take advantage of every minute of the lessons.
I've been very impressed with VOX Sprachschule Zürich. I started A1 classes in a small group lesson in February, then the pandemic hit and my courses were moved online. My teacher, Maximiliano (Maxi) Nigg, is fantastic! The classes are challenging but so helpful and my confidence in German continues to grow. I would recommend VOX and specifically Maxi to anyone who is looking to learn German.
