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 completed the B1 level English course at the Vox language school in Winterthur. In one-to-one lessons, I worked with lecturers who have a very high level of professional competence. The lessons are adapted to individual needs. The lecturers were able to respond very well to my needs. Due to my previous knowledge, I had no problems with text and reading comprehension. So I was able to concentrate mainly on speaking during the class. (Original) Ich absolvierte den Englischkurs auf dem Niveau B1 bei der Vox-Sprachschule in Winterthur. Im Einzelunterricht arbeitete ich mit Dozenten zusammen, welche eine sehr hohe Fachkompetenz aufweisen. Der Unterricht wird auf die individuellen Bedürfnisse angepasst. Die Dozenten konnten auf meine Bedürfnisse sehr gut eingehen. Durch meine Vorkenntnisse hatte ich keine Probleme mit dem Text- und Leseverständnis. Somit konnte ich mich während dem Unterricht hauptsächlich auf das Sprechen konzentrieren.
Teachers are great, and the small group size makes sure the classes remain interactive and you are engaged all the time
(Translated by Google) I enjoyed the German courses B1 and B2, I am completely satisfied! We had a small group and talked a lot during the class, that was great! The teachers are professional and nice. Thank you so much! (Original) Die Deutschkurse B1 und B2 sind mir gefallen, ich bin völlig zufrieden! Wir hatten eine kleine Gruppe und sprachen viel Zeit während des Unterrichts, das war super! Die Lehrerinnen sind professionell und nett. Vielen Dank!
Being a teacher at VOX is a very rich and joyful experience. The VOX method allows the students to get to meet a language from one of the most important sides of it – speaking. Back in the days, when I was learning English and French, a method such as the VOX-method would have helped me a lot and I would have loved to get to know it earlier. VOX provides a learning atmosphere that gives the students a chance to learn a language with a lot of motivation. One of the many advantages is also that the school is located right next to the train station and that is very convenient both for the students and the teachers.
(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) academically trained teachers, pleasant classroom climate, a little thin walls in the building. I can only recommend the school :) (Original) akademisch ausgebildete Lehrer, angenehmes Unterrichtsklima, ein wenig dünne Wände im Gebäude. Die Schule kann ich nur empfehlen :)
Very positive experience, I could see a clear improvement of my german level after doing the A2 course. Very competent teachers and a strong focus on speaking which is the best way to fill confident in actually speaking the language. I recommend!
Larissa was great. Patient and explained grammar concepts very well :)
I am currently doing a B2 German course with 3 other students online. All the other courses I have done in other schools have been in much larger groups. I feel that the course is more tailored to us as individuals and I’m learning more as a result. Agi is an excellent teacher! She explains everything clearly, allows us to practise and corrects our mistakes without destroying confidence. This has been perfect for me as a refresher course but you would have to be motivated to do extra homework if everything were new as the speed is quite fast. I am finally getting to grips with cases and am slowly learning to speak with fewer grammatical errors. I would highly recommend Vox to those who want to learn quickly and want to improve their speaking ability.
(Translated by Google) Good school with a teacher (Marcella) who is very professional. (Original) Bonne école avec un professeur (Marcella) qui est très professionnel.
Took a 1-1 course to prepare for the German C1 exam and I passed. Teacher Larissa was encouraging the whole time.
After a few courses at VOX, studying German, I can only recommend it for: 1) the quality / professionalism of the teaching (always prepared, hand-outs if necessary, follow-ups over email if a class is missed and topics / words / concepts promptly addressed the following lessons); 2) flexibility of the teaching and administration; 3) small class size (one of my main selection criteria) which allows for a good practice / feedback for all students; 4) convenient location close to HB (which was a big plus when you are trying to strike a balance with work and other chores). Both teachers I had so far (Coralie and Larissa) were extremely helpful, accurate and kind and helped me moved towards my goals.
