The Luxembourgish Department
There are 35 teachers in the INL’s Luxembourgish department; all are native speakers. They all hold a specific qualification and/or have many years’ teaching experience; they also keep up-to-date in the field of adult education by regularly attending further training courses.
Since, in the multilingual context of the Grand Duchy, with people from 170 nationalities, Luxembourgish has been gaining ground as the language of integration at school and also has become a lingua franca especially for oral communication, our courses are particularly well-attended.
We offer courses from level A1 to level C1; all are designed in keeping with the skill descriptions set out in the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
In addition to general language courses, the INL also offers other more specific courses, including: society and culture in the Grand Duchy, Luxembourgish literature, a course for German-speaking learners, and a course for shift workers.
Since 2009, the INL has also offered a training course leading up to the ‘Zertifikat Lëtzebuerger Sprooch a Kultur’ (ZLSK) qualification which makes it possible, following the approval by the Ministry of Education’s adult training department (Service de la Formation des Adultes – SFA) to hold Luxembourgish courses for adults in the municipalities and various structures approved by the Ministry.
