Dutch for Beginners I

What will I learn?

In this course for beginners, you will learn the basics of Dutch. Starting off with talking about yourself and having small, everyday conversations. Alongside general homework, you will receive practical assignments to immediately put your new knowledge into practice.

You will specifically become familiar with themes such as: introducing yourself, making appointments, placing an order in a bar or restaurant, talking about your weekend plans and what you did last weekend, asking for and giving directions, talking about celebrations, shopping at various shops.

Each class has a maximum of 8 participants, which ensures you get the most out of it. The teacher provides personal feedback, you get a lot of time to speak and simultaneously you learn from classmates who have other questions and experiences.

Evening & morning classes

We offer this course in the evenings and mornings. For those who work during office hours, we start after 17:00 and alternate start times every week: one week you have class at 17:15 and the other at 19:30. For those who are not tied to an office job, we also offer morning classes.

People are saying

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

Perfect learning environment!

The teachers are very motivated, together with the small group size, a perfect learning environment! – Katrin

Fluent and confident just in a few meetings

This course helped me a lot to speak more confidently and fluently than I was before just in a few meetings. I did not know that I was able to speak a lot of things that I have learned until I tried. – Jessica
