SPEAK THE LOCAL LANGUAGE ‘LETZEBUERGESCH’

About the language

Luxembourgish is a West Germanic language spoken by about +/- 400,000 people in Luxembourg (Lëtzebuerg) and the Greater Region of Luxembourg bordering with France (Frankräich), Belgium (Belsch) and Germany (Däitschland). There are also a few Luxembourgish speakers in the USA. It has a lot in common with German and Dutch, and has also borrowed some words from French, e.g. merci (thank you).

Luxembourgish Schools for expat communities

Luxembourgish is used in pre-school education in Luxembourg. Primary education is in German and senior education switches to French in some subjects. Luxembourgish will always remain the spoken mother-tongue amongst the population attending the luxembourgisch school system. A child of foreign origin will adapt to the local community and culture easily if  they join the luxembourgish school. After all, community integration and the sense of belonging plays a crucial role when living abroad, starting with the mother-tongue… and feeling the local connect..

What my students Are Saying

Don’t just take it from me, hear it from others !

“I had the privilege to be coached by Kanchini and it was a very useful and pleasant experience. She is very dedicated and follows through with each student trying to help in the best possible way.

I appreciated most the workshops that she organised with native speakers and the format she proposed. It is really challenging and pushes the student to overcome their limitations.

The end result is a boost of language confidence and an exponential increase in one’s speaking capabilities.”

Florin

Before starting I had a mediocre A1 level, no notions of German and only 2,5 month until the exam. Nevertheless I managed to collect 45/100 in listening and 95/100 in my speaking test and I can’t thank Kanchini enough for that.

She has tailored a very pragmatic study-plan specific for me with an emphasis on the spoken language. Some of the sessions were held via skype, others in public spaces that boosted describing people and environment in real life. Kanchini also has a fantastic group of native-speaking friends who are happy to chat, correct your mistakes and give conversational tips.

Combined with daily brief phone calls the experience was ganz flexible, interactive and effecient.

Vill Gleck!
