Learn a new language

At Taalcentrum Kookoovaja we teach languages to help people deeply enjoy and become part of a foreign culture or Dutch society. We provide language courses in Utrecht in small classes and organize cultural events. Learn more about our mission here.

Why take a language course at Kookoovaja?

In our classroom you can expect personal attention and care for each student. Teaching in small classes ensures that we can tailor to your individual needs, give you immediate feedback and create a strong bond between you and your teacher. We are native speaker teachers who are passionate about our language and excited to teach you more about our culture. We are also students of foreign languages ourselves, so we know what it’s like to learn a language and that’s why we want to make your learning experience as pleasant, easy and fun as possible. Students describe us as friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and our lessons as very enjoyable.

It is a lot fun and progress is being made surprisingly fast. I’ve just finished the first course and I’m looking forward to start the next one!


Lessons that you look forward to

There are a few things that in my opinion makes Kookoovaja’s teaching method stand. First are the small groups, the teacher can follow everyone and you get to know your classmates quite well. Second the variety of exercises together with the focus on speaking. What you end with are very gezellig and fun lessons that you look forward to.
