The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a small State in the heart of Europe; it is home to both Luxembourgers who routinely use the three languages Luxembourgish, French and German, and many foreign residents; there is also a large number of cross-border workers. The complexity and the uniqueness of the situation in terms of language resulted, in 1991, in the creation of the ‘Centre de Langues Luxembourg’ (CLL); legislation passed on 22 May 2009 turned this into the ‘Institut National des Langues’ (INL). The INL is a public administration under the authority of the Minister for Education, Children and Youth.

Our missions

As a centre for language learning, the INL:

    • promote plurilingualism,
    • encourage integration and social cohesion,
    • improve employability;
  • promotes intercultural exchange through use of the languages taught;
  • offers adult literacy courses.

As an examination and certification centre, the INL:

  • certifies knowledge of the Luxembourgish language in respect of official diplomas and certificates in the Luxembourgish language;
