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.
Upcoming Goethe exams
I am currently in A2 German with the amazing Isabelle. She is a great teacher with great teaching technics and amazing personality. All of us in the group really vibe with her and learn with pleasure and smiles. My German has improved drastically and I am more confident to speak now. VOX Sprachschule is the best choice one can make for learning a language.
I have taken two classes with Isabel - b1 and b2 German and i have been very happy with both. She’s an excellent and compassionate teacher. I like the emphasis on communication - reading, writing and speaking. I like the online format, and the teaching materials. I‘ve learned a lot and will consider a Vox class when I continue.
I have had an excellent experience during my B2 German course with VOX. Yana is an incredible teacher, she is really encouraging and patient and my German has improved more than I ever could have hoped! Yana made sure that every lesson was tailored towards my needs and really went above and beyond in making sure I was always getting the most out of the course and our lessons - can't thank her enough!!
With VOX-Sprachschule I was able to improve a lot with German. The Language has opened Doors for me and VOX-Sprachschule and my teacher Silvan Plattner made part of it. I gonna miss the online lessons, very good. Tiptop
It has been an excellent experience working with Cedric and Coralie. I have progressed fast and have had excellent support. I highly recommend VOX and its courses - the best in town. I find the entire set up very professional, excellent quality and highly customer focus.
I am super happy with my experience with VOX. The online intensive three-month course has helped me greatly, and I like how small the classes are. My teacher Anna is just fantastic! Super motivating, helpful, and truly wants us to succeed on our language journey ☺️ I highly recommend VOX
I have just finished my Second Course with VOX Language school in Winterthur and I will be coming back for more in Winter 2022. Olga is a fantastic teacher working through the course at a good pace. She makes sure everyone gets a chance to talk during the class and makes a really nice atmosphere. If you are thinking of doing a course don't hesitate just book it. I highly recommend Vox.
VOX-Sprachschule is top notch. My teacher, Alexander, is always able to answer my questions. His expertise in languages and teaching really shows. Unlike other German courses I've attended, I really enjoyed and looked forward to this one 2x per week. The lessons and homework kept me motivated. The flexibility and personalized learning objectives of the individual lessons was really worth the extra cost for me. I've signed up to take the course again. I would recommend this course to anyone that is serious about learning one of the languages they offer.
I am currently taking German A1 with VOX-Sprachschule and have been very happy with their concept. The small group size and the skillful teacher have made it easy to reach the goals set, and I signed up for the next level without hesitation. Importantly, I travel a lot in my work and have therefore had to miss out on a number of classes, but this has never been an issue. The teacher has kindly provided me with homework for the lessons missed, so that I have had no problems keeping up with the other students. Also from the admin side everything has been very streamlined. All in all, I warmly recommend this language school.
VOX is not only a different school for people who want to learn a new language, but for teachers as well! Small groups, tailored courses and a focus on speaking provied a unique experience for everyone. I'm honoured to be part of the team!
