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.

A sense of community

This is my second course with Kookoovaja and it has been just as worthwhile as the first! It was nice to see most of my class companions from the previous block, because then there was a sense of community and speaking and learning became more easy-going. – Julia

I would definitely recommend it!

I am very happy that I’ve chosen to learn Dutch with Kookoovaja! I enjoyed the exercises, the grammar was very well structured and being exposed to Dutch conversations developed considerably my ability to follow the people around me. The teacher made learning a difficult language very fun and I could see progress shortly after I started the course. I would definitely recommend Kookoovaja! – Luiza
