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.

(Translated by Google) I attended the VOX language school for a month to improve my English language skills. In addition to the well-located location, the lessons with Nico were sensational. The lessons were individually tailored to me, and the teaching materials were also very helpful. I can only recommend the VOX language school to everyone. (Original) Ich besuchte die VOX-Sprachschule für einen Monat um meine Sprachkenntnisse im Englisch zu verbessern. Neben der gut gelegenen Lage war auch der Unterricht bei Nico sensationell. Der Unterricht wurde individuell auf mich abgestimmt, auch die Lehrmittel waren sehr hilfreich. Ich kann jedem nur die VOX-Sprachschule weiterempfehlen.
Had a very good learning period with Nadine! Would definitely recommend VOX-Sprachschule to anyone who would be interested to start picking up a new language in the fastest way possible!
I feel that I am moving towards my goals, and that Priska is a great teacher. I get plenty of speaking practice, which is super. Priska makes sure that I Get the necessary grammatical exercises, and she is great at explaining the grammatical rules.
As a teacher working for VOX, I could not be happier about my experience here. Teaching to single students or small groups (max five people) allows me to adapt the lessons to their goals, maximize their progress, follow them up thoroughly and establish trustworthy, effective relationships. The focus is on speaking skills, which I consider crucial to prepare the students for contexts of real communication. The team is varied, multilingual, highly motivated and supportive: the students will always find someone that can fit with their timetable and requirements. Finally, the school has a clear ambition to grow, to develop and to provide an ever-improving service. From my point of view, highly recommended for both teachers and students.
(Translated by Google) I am very happy with VOX school. I had my lessons with Kristina. After teaching her, I received the Goethe-Zertifikat C1. I can recommend Kristina for everyone.

Ich kann Kristina für jeden empfehlen.
Here is my honest review of VOX Sprachschule Winterthur: I have taken two courses (B1 and B2 German) with Vox and I have had a very positive experience so far. I have recommended Vox to a close friend of mine as well. My teachers at Vox were some of the best I’ve had. Each lesson plan is organised, the class sizes are small, and the teachers are highly educated. I am currently taking B2 German with Daniel M. The lessons are organised and structured letting you know which concepts are covered. This makes it easy to look back and practice on your own. My teacher does a great job breaking down German grammar principles into simple components and explaining the rules involved in sentence structure and conversation. My language acquisition is quicker and easier thanks to this method of teaching. He pays extra attention to making sure your pronunciation is correct when speaking. This has improved my communication skills greatly. The reading, writing, and conversational exercises are very helpful. Overall this course continues to give me the tools to become fluent in German. I have previously taken B1 with VOX as well, and I was also impressed with my former teacher, Alys B.-C. We learned in a structured yet stress-free manner. It was easy to speak to my other classmates online. I appreciated the instructor's detailed notes, conversation, handouts, and written exercises. I would definitely take another Vox class again. It is worth the price. The teachers are supportive and you can e-mail them outside of class time. The school is flexible so working and learning is not a problem. The staff checks in with you to make sure your feedback about your class is taken into consideration. My understanding of German has vastly improved. My ability to read, write, and speak are much better than before. Overall Vox Sprachschule Winterthur gets a 5/5 for me.
Really excellent experience - the teacher was totally up to speed on what I needed to do and delivered a targeted programme to help me develop my skills. Thoroughly enjoyable as well!
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.
(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) 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.

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
