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'm on my second course learning German with vox and enjoying every minute of it! Had 3 different teachers so far and each of them have been super knowledgeable and bring a clear structure to the course, while also keeping an eye on the progress of the students, making sure that they are understanding the topics. Definitely recommend.
They are best in their profession!!!
Very easy to find course type and time slots that will fit the needs of students. Positive, friendly atmosphere , no unnecessary stress about German;)
(Translated by Google) The space and the location are excellent. My teacher Tatiana is very good! She makes the lessons very varied and full of passion. She recognized my strengths and weaknesses immediately and adapted the course content to them. She is the best teacher I have ever had. Thank you, for the great lessons. I'm really looking forward to the next lesson. (Original) Die Räumlichkeit und der Standort sind hervorragend. Meine Lehrerin Tatiana ist sehr gut! Sie gestaltet den Unterricht sehr abwechslungsreich und mit voller Leidenschaft. Sie erkannte meine Stärken und Schwächen sofort und passte den Kursinhalt auch an diese an. Sie ist die beste Lehrerin, die ich jemals hatte. Vielen Dank, für den tollen Unterricht. Ich freue mich schon sehr, auf den nächsten Unterricht.
I was taking a C2 English course at the VOX language school to prepare for a Toefl exam. The school is located in the heart of the city right on Central square. After my request for a C2 level course, I was quickly given a recommendation about who would be the best teacher for me. I was being introduced to Tatiana who is a great teacher and she helped me out in any way I needed her. I didn’t have much time for my exam preparation, but Tatiana made sure we covered everything for the exam just in time. All in all, I would highly recommend studying at VOX language school and would definitely join again if I wanted to improve or learn another language!
(Translated by Google) I had a private course in French to prepare for my bilingual studies. My teacher Alex was very friendly, competent and motivating! Due to the change of residence, the course time was unfortunately limited to 8 weeks - otherwise I would have liked to continue! (Original) Ich hatte einen Individualkurs in Französisch, um mich optimal für mein zweisprachiges Studium vorzubereiten. Mein Lehrer Alex war sehr freundlich, kompetent und motivierend! Durch den Wohnortwechsel war die Kurszeit leider auf 8 Wochen beschränkt - sonst hätte ich gerne weitergemacht!
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.
They are best in their profession... :) <3
Highly recommend 😊 After changing various school to learn German, in Vox I had the opportunity to get intensive and super-intensive courses with great teachers. The most advantageous is that all classes are hold with 3-5 people strictly which is the perfect number in order the tuition to be efficient.
I was learning English with the level A2-B1. I had good experiences with this school. My teacher was Tatiana. She is very professional and organized. Tatiana always sensed what exactly I need to improve my knowledge of the language. She is an excellent teacher. No question was left unanswered:) I'm really happy that I had such a good teacher. I attented other courses before and left without progress. This investion was worth it. This location is easily accessible from the HB Zürich.
(Translated by Google) My teacher Priska is very nice and always patient. (Original) Meine Lehrerin Priska ist sehr nett und immer geduldig.
I am currently learning Norwegian and I have to say this school is the best. My teacher, Kirsten, has a lot of patience and she explains everything good and clear. I am satisfied with the course ( couldn’t be better organised - full flexibility ). I would definitely recommend it.
