Languages

French is used in legislation, while Luxembourgish, German and French are used in administrations and for legal matters. However, with so many foreigners living in Luxembourg, it is not surprising that most locals also speak English fluently. You will not have much trouble communicating in the language of Shakespeare.

Language courses

There are many schools, communes, associations, institutes and companies, where you can learn languages, for example, French, German, Luxembourgish, English, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Chinese. Some offers of the City of Luxembourg or other municipalities are very interesting price wise.

Evening courses

Each commune offers different evening courses, which cover a large number of subjects, e.g. languages, music, sports, etc. depending on the commune.

As programmes are updated regularly, get in touch with your commune to find out what is scheduled (for Luxembourg City: www.vdl.lu and for other communes www.syvicol.lu).

The ‘Chambre des salariés’ and the Chamber of Commerce also organise high quality evening courses on a wide away of subjects, including law, trade, finance and management.
