Language learning for adults

Language courses for adults Luxembourg

Multilingualism is omnipresent in Luxembourg, whether in everyday life or at work. Whatever the situation, you can expect to speak a different language, or to be addressed in a language other than your mother tongue.

To integrate as well as possible in Luxembourg, it's important to speak several languages. And mastering foreign languages is a real political priority, to helpnew arrivals integrate as quickly as possible. Anyone wishing to learn a new language has every opportunity to do so.

A wide range of language learning opportunities in Luxembourg

There is a wide range of language courses on offer in Luxembourg, from public integration bodies to private structures.

INL, a key player in language learning

The Institut National des Langues or INL is a key player in language learning in Luxembourg. For a very modest annual fee, you can learn up to 8 languages , including Lëtzebuergesch, German, French, Chinese, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, with certification to boot. No more excuses for not integrating into Luxembourg's many communities!

Private language schools in Luxembourg

In Luxembourg, you'll find many private companies offering language courses on an individual, inter-company or intra-company basis.

In most cases, these specialized language learning companies also organize intensive language courses for children during the school vacations in French, German or English.

Learn Luxembourgish

Lëtzebuergesch is one of Luxembourg's 3 official languages. Fluency in Lëtzebuergesch is a prerequisite for obtaining Luxembourgish nationality, which is subject to a written and oral Lëtzebuergesch test.

Training leave to learn Luxembourgish

Do you work in Luxembourg and want to learn Lëtzebuergesch? As an employee, self-employed or liberal professional, you can take advantage of special paid leave to learn Luxembourgish or perfect your command of the language.
This special leave can amount to up to 200 hours over the course of your professional career.
