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.

I'm really happy with VOX and Larissa, the lessons are engaging and fun, a lot of speaking practice and grammar. But the most important thing is they care about your experience. Definitely recommending.
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.
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.
Just finishing my A2 German class in Vox. Comparing to the other courses that I have taken they were way better in many ways: - they have many options to chose, especially if you are looking for morning classes like me you you will definitely find your slot there. - the classes are very small which gives you lots of chances to practice - they take customer satisfaction very seriously. they frequently get feedback from everyone in the class to make sure everything goes as promised and do the adjustments if needed. ( This is the best part of the course as you feel like they are not just trying to get your money and disappear) I had many attempts to learn German in the past with different courses but they were not successful until I met Vox school.
(Translated by Google) I am so happy to be part of the team! A great school with nice, comfortable rooms, a nice working atmosphere and nice students. We are happy together about every success of our students and they are numerous 🤗🎉 (Original) Freue mich riesig ein Teil des Teams zu sein! Eine tolle Schule mit schönen gemütlichen Räumen, nettes Arbeitsklima und nette Schüler. Man freut sich zusammen über jeden Erfolg von unseren Schülern und die sind zahlreich🤗🎉
I think I achieved my goals by doing a course with Felicity. I learned something new about learning as well, which I can apply in every studying subject. That's why I can recommend this course to everyone who learns German. The studying materials and school facilities are also of highest quality. Thank you ones more for your team work!
The school has a very interesting system to teach! And the teacher Lisa follows the method very well and is an excellent teacher! She was the only one among 4 schools that I went to that finally managed to unlock me in German 💓
They are best in their profession!!!
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) The teachers are passionately good and you learn the content quickly (Original) Die Lehrer sind leidenschaftlich gut und man lernt den Inhalt schnell
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.
