The INL bases its teaching, learning and assessment on the principles of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR,, which was drawn up by the Council of Europe. The Framework sets out six levels, ranging from A1, for absolute beginners, to C2, which is equivalent to mother tongue.

As a result, language classes at the INL:

  • follow a progression through the six levels of the CEFR, from A1 to C2;
  • are in the target language right from level A1;
  • are based on an interactive approach;
  • aim to improve the language skills of understanding, speaking, reading and writing;
  • mobilise all kinds of language resources: grammar, spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation;
  • promote autonomy and encourage thinking about the learning process and regular auto-assessment.

Each unit lasts 100 minutes.

Learners are assessed either by formative assessment, or by a final test at the end of each semester. Learners receive a skills’ assessment report showing the level achieved.

The INL offers:

  • general language courses for beginners and for the more advanced;
  • courses with specific objectives (conversation, writing, etc.);
  • courses to prepare for language tests and examinations;
  • training in teaching Luxembourgish (ZLSK).
