Luxembourgeois

LaF – Lëtzebuergesch als Friemsprooch

The Lëtzebuergesch als Friemsprooch (LaF) diploma is a national certificate  for candidates who have learned Lëtzebuergesch as a foreign language. The levels offered correspond to levels A2 to C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The examinations are based on a communicative approach and assess language skills. The diploma can be useful for professional purposes.

The LAF diploma is independent of the language courses. 

It is therefore not necessary to enrol in a Luxembourg language course beforehand. For each level, four skills are tested: oral production, written production, oral (listening) comprehension and written comprehension.

It is not necessary to register for all four skills if you are only interested in the certification of certain skills or in certain areas.

To get an idea of the different levels, you can consult the following documents: 

Sproochentest

The Sproochentest is the language test that allows you to obtain Luxembourg nationality. The required levels are A2 in speaking and B1 in listening.

Good to know: The Sproochentest is independent of the language courses. It is therefore not necessary to enrol in a Luxembourg language course beforehand.
