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.

Great team delivering high quality courses. Not that expensive for what you get in comparison of cheaper (I prefer to invest for result instead of lowering my goals for few $). I started from A1 speaking no german at all and now I'm able to speak and understand a lot. I always had 4 to 5 people in each group which is perfect to stimulate motivation and engage people. Each professor teaches well with different flavor, which enriches dramatically the learning process. I will keep going until C2 with no doubt (unless the vicissitudes of the life decide to not to). UPDATE: Booked individual lesson with Ruben in VOX Zurich to strengthen my B1 level. Enjoyed the learning process tailor made to my needs. I had blazing fast progress and I fell now confident to speak German with German speaking people. Thanks Ruben :)
Excellent VOX to learn German and especially with the teacher Nathalie N. ! Clean and tidy rooms, professional and pedagogical teacher, small groups and very nice people ! Thank you very much VOX !
(Translated by Google) I am happy with the course. I liked the flexibility best. I hope I am close enough to my goal to pass the C1 exam. I can't think of anything spontaneously that you could have done better. Therefore: thumbs up !! (Original) Ich bin zufrieden mit dem Kurs. Am besten hat mir die Flexibilität gefallen. Ich hoffe, ich bin meinem Ziel genug nah, um die Prüfung im C1 zu bestehen. Spontan fällt mir nichts ein, was Sie hätten besser machen können. Deshalb: Daumen hoch!!
Centrally located, and flexible hours. Classes with my teacher, Isabelle Wegmüller, are highly engaging, and I feel like my German is slowly taking shape
(Translated by Google) I can only agree with the positive reviews. Everything is going perfectly, from the first contact to the lessons. I am currently doing a Swiss German course. My teacher Silvan studied languages and focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of the student. He pays great attention to the little things. The lessons are relaxed and a lot of fun. After six weeks I have already made good progress, which motivates me to continue. I can unreservedly recommend the VOX language school. (Original) Kann mich den positiven Bewertungen nur anschliessen. Es läuft alles perfekt, vom Erstkontakt bis zum Unterricht. Ich mache gerade einen Schweizerdeutschkurs. Mein Lehrer Silvan hat Sprachen studiert und geht auf die Stärken und Schwächen des Schülers ein. Er achtet sehr auf Kleinigkeiten. Der Unterricht ist locker und macht echt viel Spass. Nach sechs Wochen habe ich schon gute Fortschritte gemacht die mich weiter motivieren. Ich kann die VOX Sprachschule uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
I am extremely satisfied with Laura’s lessons. I loved her method and I improved a lot. The course was perfect with her, she is a great teacher and I am truly thankful to her for what I have learned. I would definitely recommend VOX Schule to other people. Small classes for qualitative results.
I will highly recommend this school, the teacher is very good. She is very clear when she explains topic matters and also is patient. I feel motivated during every lesson.
(Translated by Google) My teacher Priska is very nice and always patient. (Original) Meine Lehrerin Priska ist sehr nett und immer geduldig.
(Translated by Google) I took private lessons in German at VOX Sprachschule and was able to achieve very good results in a short time. My teacher Saskia was very friendly, competent and uncomplicated. She put together an individual program for me, which addressed my weaknesses and we mainly concentrated on speaking. The location of the school is very central and the rooms have high ceilings with lots of light. So I found the atmosphere very pleasant. In summary, I can highly recommend the school if you want to get results quickly. (Original) Ich habe Privatunterricht in Deutsch bei VOX Sprachschule genommen und konnte in einer kurzen Zeit sehr gute Ergebnisse erzielen. Meine Lehrerin Saskia war sehr freundlich, kompetent und unkompliziert. Sie hat für mich ein individuelles Programm zusammengestellt, welches auf meine Schwächen eingegangen ist und wir haben uns vor allem auf das Sprechen konzentriert. Die Lage der Schule ist sehr zentral und die Räume haben hohe Decken mit viel Licht. Ich fand die Atmosphäre daher sehr angenehm. Zusammenfassend kann ich die Schule sehr empfehlen, wenn man schnell Ergebnisse erzielen möchte.
