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.
