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. Your experienced teacher will help you to improve your language skills and also develop strategies for tackling the different parts of the exam. Our classes are small (3-5 people). This small size means your teacher can adapt to you and your needs. This exam preparation course will cover all parts of the exam: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, language elements (vocabulary and grammar), writing and, naturally, VOX’s specialty, speaking, and will familiarise you with the structure of each section. By using Telc-specific exam preparation materials you will be fully prepared for the exam by the end of the course.

I'm on my second course learning German with vox and enjoying every minute of it! Had 3 different teachers so far and each of them have been super knowledgeable and bring a clear structure to the course, while also keeping an eye on the progress of the students, making sure that they are understanding the topics. Definitely recommend.
I had the privilege to meet my teachers Kenny and Alex and learn German in a proactive and fun way. They inspired me to continously improve my german skills and not be afraid of speaking a new language. They always accommodated with the needs of the students and really emerge us in the culture and language. I recommend VOX to anybody that wants to learn German.
Der Englischkurs mit Cedric hat mir sehr gefallen. Der Kursort war ideal, das Kursbuch fand ich sehr interessant und hilfreich. Danke auch für die guten Gespräche und für die Flexibilität. Eine tolle Schule! (Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the English course with Cedric. The course location was ideal, I found the course book very interesting and helpful.

They are best in their profession!!!
I love the teachers but wish for flexible lesson schedules
Die Erfahrung, einen Online-Kurs zu belegen, hat mir gut gefallen. Super praktisch und hat mir einen wunderbaren Fortschritt gebracht (Translated by Google) I really enjoyed the experience of taking an online course. Super practical and has given me wonderful progress
My experience with VOX has been overall very positive and I cannot stress enough how their format of teaching to a maximum of 4 people at a time helps students developing their linguistic skills faster: you have more time to speak, to ask questions and to interact with your co-students. Isabelle has been a fantastic teacher. I attended A1 and A2 German courses with her. She was always ready to help whenever I needed assistance and answered my questions super quickly every time. She also pushed me and motivated me constantly. Herzlichen Dank Isabelle!!
A really great school and the team. The teaching method works!
(Translated by Google) I did module A1 with teacher Yana and she is certainly the best of all!! The school's method is very busy, which means it's not for everyone, but with Yana's classes twice a week, I felt very encouraged to speak the language (German), in addition to her teaching skills being great. Linguistic knowledge all teachers have. (Original) Fiz o módulo A1 com a professora Yana e certamente é a melhor de todas!! O método da escola é bem corrido, o que significa que não é para qualquer um, mas com as aulas da Yana duas vezes por semana, me senti muito estimulada a falar o idioma (alemão), além da didática dela ser ótima. Conhecimento linguístico todos os professores têm.
Super teacher for Swiss German - Silvan Plattner. Highly flexible regarding scheduling, fun lessons, overall very good value and IMO very good improvement of my Swiss German.
I have to admit that my experience with VOX up to now is really positive. I really love having my French course with Sébastien: he is really professional, he knows how to teach French and he makes my learning really pleasant. I am definitely moving toward my goals (and also pretty fast), if I think I started learning french only a few months ago. During the lessons we just go fast through the grammar (which I can do alone at home) and we have a lot of speaking practice together. I am really satisfied up to now and I intend to continue my course with VOX :D
Locations is perfect! Teachers are very professional and just cool ;) Recommend this school in any aspect!
