Online Dutch course

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.

Online classes

This course is offered fully online via a videochat program.

Good to know about online lessons:

  • Besides group-talks, we use break-out groups, so that students can talk 1 on 1 and do not have to wait for their turn in the group. Your teacher passes by to check-in, or you can ask help from your teacher via the ‘ask for help’ button. Just like in offline lessons!
  • We can record dialogues and presentations, so that the teacher and students can listen back to evaluate and give feedback. Additional plus!
  • We give students a variety of assignments and make agreements on the time you work individually, in pairs or in groups. Your teacher is online with you, just like in the classroom.
  • You can join the videochat meeting from your browser if you have not downloaded and installed the application on your computer/phone. We work with Zoom mainly, but with private/small groups your teacher might be using Skype/Teams instead.

Here are some tips for a succesful online learning experience:

  • find a room with a good internet connection.
  • make sure the room is quiet so no-one will disturb you during the class.
  • set up a good lamp for sufficient lighting to shine on you and your books.
  • test your headphones and microphone before going live.
  • be on time or a few minutes earlier to set up the connection and get familiar with the online environment.

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
