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.

I started learning german 1:1 with Kristina before COVID hit and everything was forced to close, I've been really impressed how quickly Vox set everything up for me to be able to continue my studies remotely via Zoom. I'm able to use my time productively and continue learning German. Thanks for everything! Darragh
Really excellent teaching method and class size makea this a great school. Teachers of top quality. Supplies for students such bottled mineral water is free. Great managers and staff which are very helpful with issues. Highly recommended.
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.
I have to admit that my experience with VOX up to now is really positive. I really love having my French course with Sébastien: he is really professional, he knows how to teach French and he makes my learning really pleasant. I am definitely moving toward my goals (and also pretty fast), if I think I started learning french only a few months ago. During the lessons we just go fast through the grammar (which I can do alone at home) and we have a lot of speaking practice together. I am really satisfied up to now and I intend to continue my course with VOX :D
Language learning at Vox has been a great experience. They are very flexible and responsive and always tried to tailor lessons to fit and grow my actual abilities.
Very professional and individual approach to the students
(Translated by Google) I am super happy with Tatiana's lessons and cannot give her enough laurels. She is really very knowledgeable and can always answer my, sometimes strange questions as a linguist, wonderfully. Her knowledge of phonetics is also super helpful. I have the feeling that I am making good progress and I also feel very comfortable. A + for Tatiana! (Original) Ich bin super happy mit Tatianas Unterricht und kann gar nicht genug Lorbeeren an sie verteilen. Sie ist wirklich sehr sachkundig und kann meine, wohl manchmal etwas seltsamen Fragen als Linguistin, immer auch wunderbar beantworten. Ihre Phonetik-Kenntnisse sind auch super hilfreich. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich gute Fortschritte mache und fühle mich auch sehr wohl. A+ für Tatiana!
(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!
I have a very good experience with VOX Language School. They work in small groups, have an individual approach and competent teachers.
Great opportunity to practice speaking and listening skills with the group and teacher. Flexible online approach with mature technology made lessons during lockdown possible. Review materials are shared promptly in pdf after each lesson. I also like that Isabelle inspired us to learn from multiple angles including reading a book together and watching YouTube videos in between lessons.
(Translated by Google) The school is centrally located and the rooms are nicely decorated. My teacher is very competent and motivating. Although it demands a lot, it is fun and very instructive, so that the hour usually passes far too fast. (Original) Die Schule ist zentral gelegen und die Räume sind schön eingerichtet. Meine Lehrperson ist sehr kompetent und motivierend. Obwohl sie viel fordert, macht es Spass und ist sehr lehrreich, so dass die Stunde meist viel zu schnell verfliegt.
(Translated by Google) I am so happy to be part of the team! A great school with nice cozy rooms, nice working environment and nice students. Together we are happy about every success of our students and they are numerous🤗🎉 (Original) Freue mich riesig ein Teil des Teams zu sein!
